Lighting of explosion-hazardous premises
Unlike the traditional luminaires, explosion-proof luminaries can operate in conditions with high risk of explosion.
Explosion-proof lighting is widely used at such objects as:
- industrial enterprises, especially of chemical and petrochemical industry, as well as in machine-building plants;
- oil platforms and terminals;
- coal mines and underground mines;
- places of demolition works;
- power plants;
- chemical and petrochemical enterprises;
- filling stations;
- boiler rooms.
AtomSvet® explosion-proof luminaries
AtomSvet produces explosion-proof LED luminaries AtomSvet® Plant Ex and AtomSvet® Plant Ex LV. It is an optimal solution for lighting systems in potentially explosive environments.
AtomSvet® Plant Ex explosion-proof LED luminaries
LED luminaries are designed for lighting of hazardous zones 1 and 2 and have 1 Exmb d IIBT5Gb / 1 Exmb e IIBT5Gb / 1 Exmb d IIBT4Gb / 1 Exmb e IIBT4Gb markings. LED luminaries have high ingress protection rating against humidity and dust IP67 and can operate at temperatures +/-60 °C. The usage of quality LEDs from the word’s leading manufacturer Nichia (Japan) and in-house designed drivers provides long and reliable operation during the whole service life of lighting fixtures (50,000 hours). The housing of LED luminaries is made of heat-dissipating aluminum profile and has a protective oxidized coating .
This model of explosion-proof luminaries also has low voltage design - AtomSvet® Plant Ex LV (supply voltage 12 – 24 V).
AtomSvet offers ready-made solution of explosion-proof lighting for various objects. Our experts will help you to choose optimal explosion-proof LED luminaries and will perform free lighting calculation as well as the forecast of payback period of a particular project.
The advantages of AtomSvet® explosion-proof luminaries
|Operation in facilities with high risk of explosion and stable operation as the emergency lighting||
AtomSvet explosion-proof luminaries of AtomSvet are indicated for lighting hazardous areas 1 and 2 and are marked accordingly: 1ExmbdIIBT5Gb / 1ExmbeIIBT5Gb / 1 Exmb d IIBT4Gb / 1 Exmb e IIBT4Gb. High security level of luminaries is achieved by:
LED luminaries can be used in hazardous zones of facilities and external installations of IIB category for groups of hazardous mixtures with the temperature of 100 °C (T5).
|Efficient utilization of energy resources.||Unlike the traditional luminaires LEDs save up to 70-80% of energy. Moreover, industrial explosion-proof LED luminaries AtomSvet® reduce the load on electric power lines and release additional capacities.|
|Operation in unstable voltage of electric circuits.||Protection against short circuits and pulse interferences up to 1,000 V is provided due to the built-in power source of AtomSvet with wide operating voltage range. Explosion-proof low voltage LED lighting fixtures AtomSvet® Plant Ex LV are equipped with driver of 12-24 V voltage supply and can operate from alternative energy sources (batteries, solar panels and wind turbines).|
|Long service life without maintenance and replacement of components.||50,000 hours is the guaranteed operating life of LEDs of Nichia (Japan) and drivers of AtomSvet.|
|Working at high temperatures (up to +60 °C).||Aluminum housing of explosion-proof LED luminaries quickly dissipates heat from lighting and electronic components. As a result the surface of luminaries is not heated to auto-ignition temperature of explosive mixtures that are found in environment.|
|Vibration resistance.||High resistance to vibration and shock is achieved due to the sturdy aluminium housing and polycarbonate diffuser integrated with optics. AtomSvet® LED luminaries correspond with the M2 requirements of operation according to “the Russian National Standard (GOST) 17516.1-90. Electrical products. General requirements in terms of resistance to mechanical external influencing factors”.|
Implemented projects of AtomSvet
AtomSvet® explosion-proof luminaries provide energy efficient lighting system with low cost of ownership. In his regard LED luminaries have been used for many large-scale projects:
|Apatit, OJSC - pilot-production plant of engineering structures, Murmansk Region, the city of Kirov.||Lighting of Yuksporskiy transportation tunnel No.2 was organized with the help of one-modular explosion-proof LED luminaries AtomSvet®|
|VOLGAELECTROPROM LLC, Samara Region, the city of Togliatti||For the lighting of paint and varnishes warehouse the explosion-proof LED luminaries AtomSvet® with a power of 40 Watts were used.|
|Seismotekhnika, OJSC, Belarus, Gomel||134 explosion-proof LED luminaries AtomSvet® of different capacity were installed on hoist unit in order to repair oil-and-gas wells AP-80A.|
|Mariyskiy Nefteperegonniy Zavod LLC (Mari Oil Refinery), the Mari El Republic||12 explosion-proof LED luminaries with a power of 40 Watts were delivered for lighting of area of petroleum products landing.|
Payback period of explosion-proof LED luminaries AtomSvet®
AtomSvet® explosion-proof luminaries are the effective substitutes to the traditional light sources with incandescent lamps, and with gas-discharge lamps. For example, when replacing 12 explosion-proof luminaries with incandescent lamps of 200 Watts with the same amount of LED luminaries AtomSvet® Plant Ex, the power consumption will reduce by 8,5 times, while the costs for renewal of equipment will be paid back in 2 years.
