World’s first industrial explosion proof LED light strips improves safety in high risk areas
Why Industrial Explosion-Proof LED Light Strips?
The complex and hazardous nature of confined spaces presents numerous risks for workers. Because of this, many businesses that operate in harsh locations make use of industrial explosion proof LED light strips to prevent the ignition of flammable gases. LED technology has contributed to the features of the best-LED strip lights by making them more reliable, sturdy, and cost-effective. Reducing the risk of industrial explosions in gas and oil rigs, the x-Glo IECEx range is purpose-built for environments. Fire or explosion hazards exist due to flammable gases or explosive substances such as vapours, mists, or dust.
The largest trading partner of x-Glo Lighting in South Africa, Mineglow has launched IECEx certified explosion-proof LED light Strips.
Traditional industrial explosion-proof LED lighting incorporates the use of incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. The lights are not as efficient to meet the needs of hazardous working environments, compared to LEDs. By comparison, LEDs boast an average lifespan of 50,000+ hours and a superior lumens-per-watt ratio of 40-100. Also, LEDs are highly resistant to vibration and can withstand rough treatment due to their compact design. The lighting option also consumes over 20 percent less energy compared to other units and is eco-friendly.
The industrial explosion-proof lighting solution provides a high level of protection by encapsulating electrical ignitions inside the light. The x-Glo industrial explosion-proof lighting solution is IECEx, ATEX and ROHS approved. It certified for Gas Zones One and Two, and Dust Zones Twenty-one and Twenty-two. Beyond energy efficiency alone, industrial-grade LED strip lighting is renowned for its flexibility to install quickly and easily in hard-to-reach places. Moreover, it is fully customizable in length and requires zero maintenance.
Benefits of using our best industrial explosion-proof LED light strips
Mineglow general manager, Carinne Pater said the IECEx certified lighting fixtures improve health and safety. Pater also said that it will protect workers from the risk of accidental ignitions of explosive materials.
“The best way to prevent industrial explosions in high-risk industrial areas is to remove potential ignition sources,” Pater said.
“Lights are one of the most common causes of explosion ignition. Our solution minimizes risk by isolating and containing sparks within the strip to prevent explosions from escaping and potentially igniting the gases and particles in the atmosphere.
“The low profile of our lighting solution also means that they can’t be knocked and shattered. This greatly minimizes the risk of explosive reaction from spreading or igniting volatile substances in the area. So, in terms of health and safety – the benefits are significant.”
Pater said that industrial explosion-proof lighting design offers considerable benefits over conventional lighting and other explosion-proof products, through its flexibility, efficiency, durability, and ease of deployment.
“This range is unique as it combines IECEx certified protection and peace of mind with all the benefits of premium, industrial-grade LED light strips.”
“Due to the flexibility in our industrial explosive proof LED strip lighting, our lights are easy to install. That means they can be mounted to any surface – including curved surfaces and corners – to provide consistent lighting to illuminate large areas.”
“A single strip of our lights runs up to 30 meters and can be powered with 24V, 36V, or 48V (AC or DC). It gives the customers the option to choose the optimum level of illumination for their application while maximizing the safety, productivity, and wellbeing of their workforce.”
Advantages of Using Explosion Proof LED Strip Lights
Mineglow’s industrial explosion-proof lighting range has a 50,000-hour lifespan. It can provide a daylight spectrum light in white 6500K for continuous lighting in hazardous areas. It also provides red, amber, and green for emergency directional lighting for illuminating escape routes.’ she said.
Pater said industrial explosion-proof lighting solutions are quickly becoming a safer, more cost-efficient, and sustainable long-term solution.
“With the increasing regulations on worker safety globally, we’re seeing a lot of growth in the explosive proof lighting market. So it’s fantastic that we can provide a flexible LED strip lighting solution that’s truly purpose-built for harsh conditions.”
“Using high-quality SMD LED lighting chips, our explosion-proof range offers high brightness, color consistency, uniformity, and most importantly, high reliability,” she said.
An underground coal mine in Australia, and offshore floating production storage and loading unit in Western Australia have increased their operational efficiency and workplace safety. Because they reduced maintenance and operating costs after adopting Mineglow’s x-Glo explosion proof LED light strips.
