Larson Electronics Releases New Metal Halide Boiler Light with Folding Boom
Press release date: January 29, 2013
Larson Electronics has released a new boiler inspection light designed to provide versatile operation and easy deployment during boiler inspection and maintenance activities. The WALBL-2X1000WMH Boiler Inspection Light is equipped with an extendable boom that can also be angled and locked into position, and a pair of high power metal halide lamps for effective coverage of large boiler interiors.
The Larson Electronics WALBL-2X1000WMH boiler inspection light is a high output lighting system designed to provide over 200,000 lumens of high quality illumination combined with the convenience and versatility of a wheeled tower assembly. This is a very maneuverable lighting system designed to allow operators to easily position the assembly in order to illuminate the interiors of boiler units with maximum effectiveness. Features on this boiler light include a heavy wheeled base with four lockable steel wheels designed to allow rolling over uneven surfaces and steel floor grates, and an extendable tower arm that can be adjusted vertically or angled to fit inside most boiler access doors. The folding light boom is designed to allow operators to tilt the boom at a variety of angles and lock it into place so they may then extend the boom through the boiler access door to illuminate the area below. The telescoping arm can be shortened or lengthened as well as angled, and an extra support leg on the boom provides added stability when the boom is fully extended. The light tower and base assembly is constructed of heavy gauge steel that has been powder coated for a durable corrosion resistant finish, and the base features four wheels which can be locked in place once the unit is positioned. The heavy duty lamp ballasts are mounted to the base platform to provide added stability and operate with common 120-277 VAC electrical current. The dual metal halide lamps are 1,000 watt units that produce 110,000 lumens of light output each for a total of 220,000 lumens. Each lamp features a spun aluminum reflector assembly and heavy duty ceramic socket base with a tempered glass lens. The lamps are mounted to the boom with a single mounting arm and trunnion style brackets that allow vertical adjustment, and the entire lamp and bracket assembly can be removed from the boom for transport. Larson Electronics also offers added options for this tower including tower eyelets for connecting safety cables to provide added support if desired and an assortment of lamp types and wattages including high output LED fixtures. These industrial grade boiler lights can be used in a wide variety of applications including construction or event illumination and can serve as effective light towers as well as boiler inspection lighting.
“The boiler lights have a mobile, but weighted base that enables operators to push the lights through door openings and illuminate the area below,” said Rob Bresnahan with LarsonElectronics.com. “The lights heads pivot sideways to enable entry through smaller door openings and the support leg maintains stability. We put a lot of flexibility into the product design to accommodate different door heights, sizes and angles for operators maintaining boilers.”
