The ATEX Turbolite is a high power compressed air driven lamp for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and meets EN 1127 'explosion prevention and protection’ in Europe.

ZONES: 1, 2, 21 AND 22

Wolf airlamps provide illumination for shotblasting, cleaning and coating of storage tanks and vessels and pipeline and structural engineering activities, offering a safer alternative to mains and low voltage lighting where explosive atmospheres present a serious risk to the workforce.   Light models include: Bay provides a high level of all-round general illumination and Flood has a matt reflector giving a wide-angle diffused beam.  Available in aluminium (A) or brass (B), usable in gassy mines and all lamps are nickel plated to protect against corrosion and are supplied with a bridle and safety hook fitted. 

The ATEX Turbolite is powered, purged, pressurised and cooled by compressed air controlled by an integral regulator, which passes through the lamp head and drives the turbine wheel by means of three nozzle plates. The turbine drives a magnet rotor within windings, generating the 24 Volt ac electrical supply which powers the 250 Watt halogen bulb. Major improvements over other models, include sealed bearings, refined regulator, greater use of stainless steel components, bulb-life enhancing device and silencer with a particle trap.

Special certification conditions: clean, dry compressed air and anti-static air hose are used to operate the lamp to minimise contamination inside the lamp and dangerous accumulation of static electricity and in potentially explosive dust atmospheres a ‘remote exhaust’ must be used, exhausting air to the safe area. Accessories available include anti-static hoses, filters and stands, tripods, setting and testing devices.
