Made in the USA

The Larson Electronics EPL-48-4L Explosion Proof Fluorescent Light Fixture is U.S./Canada U.L. approved Class 1 Division 1,  Class 1 Division 2 and ideal for hazardous locations where flammable petrochemical vapor or combustible dust exists or has the potential to exist. The unit has a T6 temperature rating and is approved for paint spray booths. 

***PLEASE NOTE: ANY FREE SHIPPING OFFERS DO NOT APPLY TO THIS HAZARDOUS LOCATION LIGHT FIXTURE***

The EPL-48-4L is our 4 foot long, 4 lamp, UL listed Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 1 & 2 explosion proof fluorescent light which is also approved for use in paint spray booth applications. This T6 temperature rated fixture comes standard with four fluorescent lamps. This fixture is multi-voltage capable with 347 Volt and 480 Volt versions available upon request. The EPL-48-4L provides operators in hazardous locations with a powerful and affordable lighting solution that provides the best explosion proof protection available without sacrificing fixture durability.

NOTE ON LAMPS: We offer a choice of bulbs with all of our explosion proof fluorescent fixtures. However, we standardize on the T-5HO bulbs mostly for longevity and high output. However, many of our customers, including Naval bases, shipyards, oil rigs and petrochemical processing plants operate in very cold conditions, and T-12HO bulbs operate well in those environments. The T12VHO, 110 watt Very High Output lamps make this fixture an ideal replacement for 400 watt metal halide surface mount fixtures in hazardous location areas requiring Class 1 Division 1 rated lights. *However, the 110 watt T12VHO lamp configuration is not appropriate for paint spray booth applications.

Mounting options: Standard surface mounting via our L-brackets attached to Unistruts. Pendant mounting is available for greater distancing of the fixture from the mounting surface (upon request) The Unistrut is attached to our standard L-bracket mounts. These L-bracket mounts can be adjusted to create angle mounts. As illustrated in the photos above, the series of mounting holes at the top of the bracket enable this explosion proof light to be attached to any wall, ceiling or floor surface. A simple through bolt can be used to secure the light to the surface. A single junction box at one end of the light is provided for the electrical connection.

Suggested Applications: Paint spray booths, Aircraft maintenance, Oil drilling rigs, Refineries, Solvent and cleaning areas, Chemical manufacturing, Waste treatment plants, Gas processing plants.


Made in USA Quality Lamp Options

1. Each unit dialectically tested.
2. Fixture arrives assembled and lamped to reduce installation time and cost. Adjustable mounting brackets enable the operator to choose any mounting angle for the fixture, where other models may only offer one or three choices.
3. Fixture constructed of extruded corrosion resistant copper free aluminum alloy.
4. Over-sized, finned ballast housing for 800 mA fixtures provides more heat dissipation and extends ballast life. Larger ballast box accommodates High Output lamp ballasts. Ballast housing easily accessible and externally mounted. Top and bottom covers secured with nuts and bolts, instead of threaded through holes, which can be damaged with dirt.
5. Heavy gauge extruded aluminum reflectors with high gloss reflective finish. Resists dents and corrosion.
6. A wrench is used to unscrew the end caps for relamping the fixture, while other models require the “tap and knock off” method to loosen the end cap.
7. Explosion proof, impact and heat resistant Pyrex tubes provide lamp protection.
8. Spring loaded sockets on both ends hold lamps firmly for maximum shock and vibration protection.

F48-T12-D-HO – 60 watt, 4050 lumens per bulb, 12,000 hours life, 5100 Kelvin color (76 CRI - Color Rendition) - This specialty lamp is designed to mimic daylight conditions. For paint spray booth operators requiring a brighter color light than a traditional "cool white", this bulb can be useful. (Suffix –T12DHO)
F-48-T12-VHO – 110 watt, 7000 lumens per bulb, 12,000 hours life, 4200 Kelvin color (Suffix –T12VHO) NOTE: the 110 watt lamps raise the temperature rating from T5 to T6, which is NOT appropriate for paint spray booth applications. The fixture is still Class 1 Division 1 rated, however, this fixture is no longer paint spray booth certified with the 110 watt Very High Output lamp.

06/26/12 Combustible Dust: Fire and Explosion Prevention Requires a Comprehensive Approach

The dangers of combustible dusts range from minor fires that can disrupt operations and potentially injure workers, to major explosions and conflagrations where entire facilities and surrounding properties are damaged or destroyed and fatalities occur. Since 1980 there have been at least 350 combustible dust explosions in the US, and some media reports put that number higher, with an average of 10 occurring every week. [...]

04/30/12 Explosion Proof Oil Rig Lights: Special Considerations for a Growing Industry

It is not enough to simply incorporate standard explosion proof and intrinsically safe lighting designs into rig illumination plans. The potential damage that corrosion and dampness can erode the integrity of explosion proof housings and fixtures must also be taken into consideration as well. As a result, explosion proof oil rig lighting must be specifically designed to meet marine use compliance as well as NEC, ATEX or IECex compliance if safe operation over long term use is to be ensured. [...]

09/26/11 Paint Booth Lights for Modern Paint Types

Paint manufacturers have taken these physical properties farther, and now use various pigments and materials to enhance the reflective or absorption properties of other materials to produce colors of exceptional intensity and hue. The problem for paint booth operators is obvious; with such complexities introduced into paint coloration and characteristics, being able to accurately match or reproduce colors is made more difficult. When light hitting an object does not contain a full spectrum of co [...]

09/26/11 Paint Spray Booth Lighting Fundamentals

Of huge importance to paint spray booth applications is the safety regulation compliance of the lighting equipment and its suitability for use in a hazardous environment. Due to the flammable nature of the chemicals and compounds used within the booth, removing potential sources of ignition is critical. Since any electrical equipment used is a potential source of heat, sparks or flame, it must be properly designed and certified for use in hazardous locations. Paint spry booth lighting that is mo [...]

02/06/11 LED Fluorescent Tube Fixtures: Efficiency Beyond Lumens vs Watts

LEDs retain several distinct advantages over fluorescent lamps. LEDs do not require any ballast for their operation. Using entirely solid state electronics, the current and output of LEDs can be easily regulated and maintained. There is no initial startup or warm up period normally associated with ballast equipped luminaries. [...]

12/16/10 How Do You Know If a Light is really Explosion Proof?

Hazardous location lighting equipment is in the simplest explanation used in places where concentrations of volatile gases, flammable dust or particulates, or flammable chemicals are high enough to present a danger of ignition that can lead to explosion or fire. [...]

09/02/10 Spray Booth Lights: Which Type for Best Results?

Most paint spray booths utilize one of two types of lighting fixtures in their design, either fluorescent tubes, or high intensity discharge lamps. Incandescent lamps are poor choices for spray booth applications because they are highly inefficient, have very short life-spans, and produce copious amounts of heat during their operation. [...]

08/02/10 Confined Space Lighting for Hazardous Locations

Confined spaces represent some of the most dangerous work places in commercial industries. Because of their enclosed nature confined spaces are poorly ventilated and allow volatile gases, fumes, vapors, and particulates to accumulate and increase in atmospheric density to potentially explosive levels. Confined spaces represent a hazardous work area and are loosely defined by a few general characteristics. [...]

07/20/10 “Explosion Proof”: Its Not Just a Label

Hazardous work areas are one of the most demanding environments for the workers and equipment that must operate within them.

When it comes to explosion proof lighting many people have trouble understanding exactly what the term means.

04/22/10 Explosion Proof Lights: Lessening the Danger in Hazardous Work Areas

Hazardous work areas present special challenges for the workers and businesses that must operate within them.

As well as the obvious dangers posed by inhalation of these contaminants are the not so obvious dangers that can have lethal consequences if not properly addressed. [...]
