The Flameproof Leadlamp is a lightweight portable floodlight for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and is CE marked to the ATEX Directive for safe use in Zones 1 and 2 potentially explosive gas atmospheres, where a T3/T4 temperature class permits.
Three different versions are available, with the option of powering from a 12, 24 or 42 Volt supply. Bulb ratings vary from 55 to 70 Watts and all versions offer unparalleled light output over an extremely wide 100° solid cone of light, ideal for confined space operations. Flameproof leadlamps are used extensively in many explosive atmosphere applications, particularly in cleaning, grit blasting and painting operations in tanks, silos and pipelines.
The Flameproof Leadlamp has a die cast aluminium alloy construction making the product lightweight and portable, ideal for carrying during extended shifts in offshore and onshore cleaning operations. The Leadlamp is constructed as a flameproof enclosure, containing the halogen bulb, switch and connecting wires. A flameproof threaded joint allows internal access, making bulb replacement and other minor maintenance a quick and simple operation. A large hexagonal rubber moulded guard is fitted to the outside of the head of the lamp, ensuring the glass lens and the flameproof threaded joint are both protected from drop or impact damage. The handle is moulded in tough high impact plastic and fitted with a cable clamp and provides protection for the increased safety clamped cable terminals. Cables and plugs of the appropriate rating and duty must be used and in explosive atmospheres ‘Ex’ component certified plugs, sockets and suitable fusing are required.
