Properly illuminated workplaces serve to ensure safety, especially in gas and dust explosive atmospheres, regardless of whether portable or permanently installed lamps are used. Explosionproof lighting makes high demands on the reliability and durability of the components employed. Temperature, humidity, mechanical loads and the power supply networks can all have an effect on the lamps. Careful planning can help in minimizing maintenance costs.
The hand and machine lamps for Zones 0, 1, 2, 20, 21 and 22 are small in size and are installed in machinery (such as in the printing, process and food industries). They are also useful for prolonged maintenance and inspection work and for temporary installation in oil and gas industry plants, in process engineering, in plant retrofitting operations, in aircraft maintenance, in shipyards and in tank cleaning. Their small dimensions also enable them to be installed in handrails in chemical plants and on offshore platforms. The hand and machine lamps can be equipped with LEDs or with fluorescent lamps with electronic ballasts with EOL function.
Our fiber-optic portable inspection lamps are available for use during maintenance and cleaning work under difficult conditions in Zone 0 hazardous areas. These systems consist of two parts: a flameproof enclosure containing a fluorescent tube and the associated monitoring device plus a coiled fiber-optic hose.
Portable explosionproof lamps are used in industry and in tunnel construction for site inspections, routine checks and repair work. The essential requirements are ease of handling, low weight, good illumination, service life and, of course, reliability and safety.
A wide range of linear luminaires for Zones 1, 2, 21 and 22 guarantees simple assembly and installation. Emergency lighting luminaires with an intelligent battery technology increase safety in critical situations.
