Wolf Recommends ATEX Certified Lighting for Safe Use in Potentially Explosive Hydrogen Atmos
Using ATEX or IECEx certified lighting in atmospheres where hydrogen may be present is strongly recommended as a safety precaution by technical experts at Wolf Safety.
While acknowledging that hydrogen’s ‘green’ credentials are highly encouraging, Wolf Safety believe the risks of explosion in atmospheres where hydrogen is present should not be underestimated.
As world leaders in the design and manufacture of portable and temporary lighting for use in hazardous areas, Wolf Safety are well aware of hydrogen related risks and offer safe, certified lighting solutions for use in hydrogen atmospheres.
Says Michael Morley, the company’s Technical Director: “Engineers and technicians working in locations where hydrogen or other explosive gases or vapours could be present can be confident that Wolf has a safe, ATEX certified and cost effective portable and temporary lighting solution which can be tailored to meet their specific needs.”
Wolf Safety’s range of portable lighting, temporary lighting and power distribution solutions includes products already certified for safe use in workplaces where hydrogen gas could be present.
They include their robust yet highly portable WF-300®XL and WF-250XL LED floodlights which are used worldwide, especially by engineers inspecting, repairing and maintaining storage tanks in the oil and gas industry.
Mains and low voltage versions of floodlights and luminaires, battery powered LED work lights, torches, handlamps, head torches and warning lights are also available from Wolf Safety.
