Wolf Safety Finds Solution to Dazzling Glare in Dark Tanks
A totally enclosed tank in a hazardous area which needs inspecting, cleaning or repairing is never going to win a workplace of the month award.
With floodlights in use in different locations within the tank the last thing you want is to be dazzled by the glare of your own light or those of your colleagues.
Aware of the problem, Wolf Safety, a world leader in manufacturing portable, temporary and installed lighting for safe use in potentially explosive atmospheres, have found the ideal solution.
Their highly portable yet robust WF-250XL Floodlite, designed to reduce glare, produces more than 3,000 lumens of white light from its LED array, more than enough to illuminate a 5m square tank or similar space without dazzling.
With full application support available from Wolf’s technical team, the unit provides an efficient, cost effective and highly versatile lighting solution for safe use in hazardous areas.
It also incorporates Wolf’s unique SOVI™ technology which alerts the user if lights are running outside certified and optimal voltage ranges, maximising safety and performance. Both LV and HV units are certified safe down to zero volts, as are Wolf’s WF-300®XL and LX-400/E luminaires.
“Users tell us our more powerful WF-300®XL Floodlite, which provides over 6,000 lumens, is great but its beam can be too intense when working in small spaces.” says Martyn Lee, Wolf Safety’s Marketing Manager. “This new product not only solves that problem but also offers great lighting performance in confined spaces.”
Fully compliant with the latest ATEX and IECEx standards, the unit is fitted with a highly reliable LED array, designed to provide at least 100,000 hours of working life.
