The oil and gas industry is a dangerous one — the everyday work consists of several thousands of flammable and explosive particles. These are prone to causing explosions at any given moment, so it’s important to equip yourself with the equipment that will endure such catastrophic events!
Sharp Eagle has been helping the industry for years with cameras and explosion-proof lights to raise the safety of workers and help the management assess situations for future safety protocols.
Explosion-proof lights are sophisticated tools for low-light or no-light industrial areas because they are made robustly to prevent sparks from setting the workplace ablaze, but they help workers find a way out too!
Explosion-proof lighting is famous for its capability to prevent any foreign object, such as dust and particles to interact with electronics insight the light enclosure. It’s only natural you should want your lights to have the same capabilities! Sparks from lights and other electronic devices are the number one cause of explosions in oil and gas facilities.
One of the most important factors to look at in this regard is the IP or the enclosure level of protection! This level is marked by two numbers, the first one indicates protection against human damage, solid objects, and dust particles. This one ranges from 0 – 6, and the explosion-proof equipment has to be at a minimum of 4. The other indicates protection against water, and it ranges from 0 – 8.
Sharp Eagle’s explosion-proof lights are robustly made and have an IP degree of 68!
Another thing you want to look for is durability. More precisely, how much will you need to spend on maintenance later on? If you’re looking to save on the equipment now, this can come to collect and skyrocket your maintenance costs. You should look for a product that’s durable, robust and that stands the test of time!
Sharp Eagle’s explosion-proof lights are highly durable and enclosed in materials that protect the lights from external elements, and extreme temperatures! Moreover, our products come with a five-year warranty that guarantees you won’t experience any high replacement costs for this period.
Explosion-proof lighting can and should endure harsh elements and environments, such as heat, cold, gas, steam, and so on. The thermal control structure and enclosure are proven to fight against sudden temperature changes (such as an explosion), at the same time preventing any sparks from interacting with gasses or dust, thus preventing explosions too!
Sharp Eagle’s lights and cameras are proven and ATEX-tested and certified to work in hazardous locations, with areas ranging from Zone 1 To zone 2, from zone 21 to zone 22, and zone 0 explosive atmospheres. We provide an ideal solution that will function in the most dangerous of industries.
Sharp Eagle technology enables you to choose from a wide range of lighting solutions that will meet the challenges of today and the future, protecting your most valuable assets along the way!
Lighting is very important for the uninterrupted work of gas and oil facilities! Never look to save on ensuring workers stay focused, and keeping them safe. The best explosion-proof lights can be found here at Sharp Eagle, as they’ve been ATEX certified, so you can be sure they’ll work in the most dangerous of situations.
