A Lighting System For Corrosive Environments


For operators working within the oil & gas industry or the marine space, great lighting is key to a job well done. A well-lit environment also helps facilitate safer working conditions by decreasing workplace accidents. Traditionally, the atmosphere in these locations is quite corrosive and will degrade standard metal lighting solutions. Understanding the need for a compact lighting system that can withstand corrosive conditions, innovators at AZZ Lighting Systems have developed the new CHL non-metallic LED Luminaire. 

The CHL LED non-metallic heavy duty LED lighting system was specifically developed for long-lasting performance within harsh and hazardous locations. Its body boasts rugged, fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate construction coupled with an impact-resistant polycarbonate lens. The LED luminaire is ideally constructed for use in coastal areas, marine vessels, offshore drilling rigs, and spaces where salt spray, high humidity or caustic chemicals are a challenge. Designed for advanced safety, performance, flexibility and serviceability, the CHL LED features a heavy-duty, 1/8" thick body, 3/4" NPT hubs, three cable entry points, toolless, cage-clamp terminal block, and captive junction box cover and hardware. 

Other key features of the CHL non-metallic LED Luminaire include a compact design and small footprint that doesn’t sacrifice lumen output. Its lightweight body and low profile enables installation even in the tightest spaces. Hardware is captive to the fixture in order to maximize convenience and safety. The CHL is easy to install and maintain, and offers the unique benefit of field-replaceable circuit boards and drivers, ensuring future serviceability and lowering long-term operating costs. In addition, the CHL sports standard 10kV surge protection, emergency battery back-up, dimmable driver, and a diffused lens option. 

Wet, humid, and corrosive locations are typically a death knell for traditional lighting systems. The new CHL non-metallic LED Luminaire is a powerful lighting solution purposefully engineered to withstand punishing elements, while providing superior performance and long-lasting product life in hazardous locations. This versatile system allows for various mounting options so that it produces reliable illumination where it’s needed most.
