The Turbolite is a high powered compressed air driven lamp developed from the well-known Wolf Airturbo. Certified for use in Zones 1 and 2 Hazardous Areas, they are commonly used in the oil and petrochemicals industries for tank cleaning and pipeline inspections, offering a safe alternative to low voltage lighting in dangerously wet conditions. The Turbolite is also ideal for use in confined spaces, where flammable gases and vapours can accumulate.
ZONES: 1 AND 2
The Turbolite A-TL44 has a bay light fitting comprising a ball glass and protective polycarbonate dome to provide all-round general purpose illumination and a hook provides for suspension of the lamp in the working area or for simple fastening to a folding tripod. The Turbolite A-TL45 has a reflector head fitting for direct floodlight type illumination with a matt reflector giving a diffused wide angle beam.
The housings are cast brass, a spark free material, and the safety hook is also brass, but forged for extra strength and all external parts are nickel plated. Internal components are of durable design making the products suitable for use in the harshest industrial environments. A clean dry air supply is a condition of certification and essential for the efficient running of these lamps, otherwise contamination will deposit into the inside of the lens, reducing illumination levels. Suitable air-line filters can be supplied. Another mandatory requirement is the use of anti-static hose, to prevent the generation of unsafe levels of static electricity.
The 24 volt 250 watt tungsten halogen bulb is available in two types offering a choice of 6,000 lumens for 2,000 hours or 9,000 lumens for 200 hours. Lamps are routinely run in, tested and set to the necessary output prior to despatch and are simple and easy to maintain.
