The Wide Application Of LED Lighting Fixtures Highlights The Unique Needs

- Sep 23, 2019-

Since the production and operation sites are mostly flammable and explosive hazardous areas, this determines the unique requirements for lighting products. The safety and reliability of lighting equipment plays a very important role in safeguarding its production development. LED lighting fixtures are mainly used in the following areas:


Application 1: Daily maintenance and emergency lighting


Mainly for pipelines, equipment inspections, emergency situations, etc., need to move explosion-proof LED lamps. Previously used dry battery portable lamps with halogen bulbs as light sources, they not only have low explosion-proof performance, short lamp life, large dry battery consumption, low brightness, and short working time. LED explosion-proof flashlights and LED explosion-proof searchlights have become the new favorite of petrochemical workers with their high brightness, long working hours and maintenance-free, and have gradually eliminated those traditional emergency lights. The installation height is 3.6 meters, three different light source typical lamps: 125W self-ballasted mercury lamp, 2*20W fluorescent lamp, 19W LED lamp. The test comparison data is: illuminance and power illuminance comparison data within the effective 4 m diameter range. From the above two sets of data, LED lamps have great advantages in the petrochemical industry, which is only from the perspective of illumination and energy saving. of. If you count the safety benefits and social benefits of using LED lamps.


Application 2: Indoor equipment area such as pump house


Mainly for indoor equipment such as pumps, the lighting area is equipment and instruments, etc. The height of the lamps is generally 4-6 meters, and the illumination requirement is about 30 LUX. Because most of the area 1 or even 0 area, the explosion-proof and waterproof performance requirements of the luminaire are also very strict, and the illumination of the installation forms a lot of blind corners. The previous lighting fixtures are bulky and complicated to install, resulting in uneven illumination and glare. The small size and natural white light of the LED luminaire make installation and maintenance easy, and the lighting place is concise and comfortable.


Application 3: Petrochemical plant area


Mainly for outdoor or indoor equipment such as towers, tanks, pipelines, etc. The local lighting area is instrument equipment or pedestrian passages. The height of the lamps is generally 2-4 meters, and the illumination is generally required to be around 20 LUX. Because most of the areas are Zone 1 or Zone 0, the explosion-proof performance requirements of the lamps are extremely strict. The basic requirements are above the explosion-proof grades, mostly for outdoor areas. The lamps are required to have good waterproof and corrosion resistance, and most of the areas are several meters or even High-altitude areas of 100 meters, high temperature and high pressure, and the replacement and maintenance of lamps are extremely difficult. Before the appearance of LED lamps, low-voltage self-ballasted mercury lamps or increased safety explosion-proof fluorescent lamps used by enterprises have low explosion-proof grades, poor waterproof performance and low light efficiency, especially the short life of the light source, poor safety and frequent replacement. The large amount of maintenance causes many high-altitude operations, and there are accidents such as electric shock and falling from high altitude, so there are major safety hazards. The intrinsic safety and long life of LED luminaires have completely solved this problem. The safety requirements of the industry determine the application potential of LED luminaires.
