Explosion Proof 400 Watt Metal Halide Tank Light Released by Larson Electronics
Press release date: February 26, 2014
Leading manufacturer and distributor of industrial lighting equipment Larson Electronics has announced the release of a new 400 watt explosion proof metal halide tank light. The EPL-TL-C-F cart mounted portable light produces 75,000 lumens of light while drawing only 400 watts of power.
The EPL-TL-C-F explosion proof portable tank light from Larson Electronics is rated Class 1 Division 1 and uses a 400 watt metal halide lamp to produce 75,000 lumens of light that is capable of illuminating 20,000 square feet of work area. The 400 watt metal halide lamp is mounted on top of an aluminum cart with solid rubber wheels and provides a portable and easily mobile source of hazardous location illumination. Often referred to as a “tank light”, this unit is considered universal due to its ability to be passed through any conventional manhole such as those found in petrochemical containers and ship storage tanks. This explosion proof tank light provides a safe, versatile and convenient lighting alternative to the cumbersome setup of string lights and is ideal for use in confined spaces such as those found in marine storage tanks, the petrochemical and agricultural industries.
Further adding to the versatility of this tank light, we have developed a flange mount option that enables operators to mount the light head in a suspended position from an overhead man way. The flange wraps around the edges of the man way and the light is mounted to the flange assembly by an included threaded brass rod. This unit is offered in an 18 inch or 24 inch diameter version and is easily passed through most conventional manholes and entryways. The cart and lamp assembly are designed to be easily disassembled without tools, passed through manholes and then reassembled once inside the tank or enclosed area. Included with this unit is 250 feet of SOOW cord that ends in a 1523 explosion proof plug. This unit can be configured to operate on 120 volts or 230/240 volts for international use.
“The transportable wheeled cart for this heavy duty light can be disassembled and reassembled in minutes for ease of transferring it through small manhole openings,” Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com said. “We have also incorporated a flange mount option into this unit so that users can easily mount the light overhead their work space within the manhole.”
