Magnalight.com by Larson Electronics Announces Release of Explosion Proof LED Blasting Gun Light
Magnalight.com from Larson Electronics has announced the release of a powerful explosion proof LED blasting gun light designed to provide extreme durability as well as highly convenient operation. Battery powered and easily mounted to any standard industrial blasting gun, the BLG-LED-4 LED blasting light includes an innovative protective lens system for operation in the demanding conditions of media blasting operations as well as IECex and ATEX certifications for worldwide use.
The BLG-LED-4 intrinsically safe LED blasting gun light from Magnalight.com produces intense illumination that is ideal for providing good visibility in the demanding conditions of blasting operations where dust and debris can obscure a light source. The Magnalight LED blasting light is certified Zone Zero for use in Class 1 Division 1 areas and Class 2 Division 1 areas. The intrinsically safe LED blasting light carries IECEx and ATEX certifications for international use. Designed for simple operation, this LED blasting light is easily mounted to any standard industrial blasting gun and includes a quick change lens cover to protect the light from the damaging effects of blasting materials. This lens cover is constructed of tempered glass, and can be simply slipped out and replaced with a new lens as needed, even when wearing gloves. As the lens is scratched by contact with blasting media, the operator can simply slide the old lens out and insert a new one to return the unit to its full clear output. A spring loaded fastener keeps the lens in place, and no tools or disassembly is required to perform lens replacements. The process is easy to do even with a gloved hand. This LED blasting gun light provides additional performance through battery powered operation that does away with the need for cords or transformers. This light will operate for 80+ hours on a single set of batteries, and produces 90 lumens of intense light in a concentrated beam that is ideal for cutting through the dust and debris caused by blasting operations. The unit is installed by simply clamping it on to any standard industrial blasting gun and a rubber coated switch then depressed to activate the light. The rugged nylon housing on this LED light LED light provides excellent protection against damage from impacts and watertight operation in wet environments. This blasting gun light is intrinsically safe and carries international certification for use in any hazardous environment, making it ideal for use in media blasting booths, mines, and anywhere a gun mounted blasting light is preferred.
"Unlike competitive blasting light solutions, the BLG-LED-4 gun mounted LED blasting light operates without cords or transformers and offers intrinsically safe protection with worldwide certifications for hazardous location areas," said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics' Magnalight.com. "Our innovative patent pending "Quick Change Lens Cover" eliminates the need for any twist off components or operators trying to handle small glass lenses with dirty gloved hands. This explosion proof LED light can be used in any hazardous location area in the US and around the world with ATEX and IECex certifications."
