News from ThomasNet Industrial News Room:

Leader in industrial Lighting Larson Electronics has announced the addition of a powerful fluorescent light fixture designed to produce output in the ultraviolet end of the light spectrum. The EPL-48-2L-UV Explosion Proof Ultraviolet Fluorescent Light is approved for hazardous locations and paint booth use and provides ultraviolet light output that is ideal for curing adhesives and coatings in industrial applications or germicidal control in the food and health related fields.

The EPL-48-2L-UV explosion proof ultraviolet fluorescent light from Larson Electronics provides high output ultraviolet light that is ideal for use during adhesive and coating applications that require UV light to speed the curing process. This fixture is also well suited to suppression of microbes as a germicidal control in the food and health industries. Measuring four feet long and weighing 65 lbs, this ultraviolet fluorescent fixture features aluminum construction, external sealed ballast, and heat and impact resistant Pyrex tubes to protect the fluorescent bulbs. These lights are designed to produce ultraviolet light, commonly known as “black light”, and are available in a variety of wavelength depending upon the operators needs.  Available output wavelengths for this light include Ultraviolet A 400nm – 315nm, Ultraviolet B 315nm – 280nm, and Ultraviolet C 280nm – 100nm which is com…………… continues on ThomasNet Industrial News Room

Annually, the company expects to save more than $ 55,000 a year, not including additional maintenance savings due to the longevity of the lamps. It expects to recoup its investment in less than two years.

“We’ve had three months of billing to examine the installation and it was worth every penny,” said Donnie Miller, fixed operations…………… continues on Tampabay.com
