Larson Electronics Adds LED T series bulb options to Corrosion Resistant Hazardous Area Fluorescent Lights|
Expanding on its line of explosion proof and hazardous location fluorescent lighting, Larson Electronics now offers LED T series bulbs for its HALP and HALSS series of corrosion resistant lighting.
The HALP series offers a glass fiber reinforced polyester housing and an acrylic diffuser lens cover, while the HALSS series offers a stainless steel housing and high impact acrylic lens. Both lines of UL 844 approved Class 1 Division II lights are designed to accommodate saltwater and other corrosive liquids and gases that may be present in marine and other environments. While the standard HAL series, outfitted with a extruded aluminum housing, continues to be a mainstay for standard hazardous location area lighting, the non-corrosive materials used in the HALP and HALSS series offer a specific value proposition for corrosive environments. The introduction of LED T series replacement bulbs improves the efficiency and the longevity for all three lines of Class 1 Division 2 fluorescent lighting.
“Off shore oil rigs, shipyards and a wide variety of manufacturing environments take advantage of the non-corrosive properties of these UL 844 approved fluorescent lights today,” said Rob Bresnahan, with Larson Electronics. “Going forward, these LED T-series bulbs reduce the electric usage, while offering longer life and greater vibration resistance. This translates into savings of time and money associated with re-lamping these hazardous area light fixtures, especially in difficult to access areas. Due to new advances in LED technology, these 24 Watt LED T-series bulbs generate more light output than 40 watt fluorescent tubes, but less light output than the T12HO or T5HO bulbs we normally include with our standard configuration. However, these T-series LED bulbs use the latest Samsung LEDS and offer 50,000 hours of life, lower electric usage and substantial vibration resistance which is ideal for the harsh environments these explosion proof lights are used in. We offer these in 4 foot, 2 lamp models and 2 foot, 2 lamp models. The HALP-48-2L-LED and HALSS-48-2L-LED are the latest 4 foot additions and the HALP-24-2L-LED and the HALSS-24-2L-LED are the 2 foot versions. “
Larson Electronics manufactures and sells a wide variety of industrial grade lighting, including Class 1 & 2 Division 1/2 explosion proof lights and Class 1 Division 2 hazardous location lights. Ranging from handheld flashlights and rechargeable lights all the way to portable light towers, larsonelectronics.com offers an extensive array of lighting for industrial, military and petrochemical operations, where the presence of flammable vapors or dusts are present.
