Lighting Tackles Marine Environments
Larson Electronics has expanded its range of industrial-grade lighting equipment with a new fluorescent fixture designed for wet areas and salt-water marine environments.
The Class 1 Division 2 HALP-48-2L-NSIL hazardous-area fluorescent light fixture has a T4C temperature rating and is designed for use in wet environments where corrosion resistance is critical to equipment longevity and safety.
This includes petrochemical facilities, lubrication pits, oil drilling rigs, crew quarters, solvent/cleaning areas, water treatment areas, processing plants and marine loading docks.
Features and Specs
The fixture is constructed of non-corrosive materials, including polyester housing reinforced with glass fiber; a poured-in neoprene gasket for reliable sealing; and an impact-resistant acrylic diffuser, the company reports.
The polyester housing is reinforced with glass fiber and features a poured-in neoprene gasket for sealing.
Eight corrosion-resistant plastic latches secure the lamp cover to the housing and provide a lock against the seal to prevent drips and water intrusion. Flange-type stainless-steel mounts at each end allow the fixture to be secured to any surface. A pendant mount option allows hanging the fixture from a ceiling.
“Although silicone gaskets are high heat resistant, the silicone is attacked and broken down by certain chemicals,” said Rob Bresnahan, of Larson Electronics.
“By incorporating a neoprene gasket on this fixture, it is resistant to moderate chemicals and acids, as well as oils, fats, greases, and solvents.”
