Hot mill factories such as those that produce steel, glass, paper, or other manufacturing factories experience extreme temperature fluctuation. This temperature fluctuation can pose a lighting problem. While quality lighting is needed, the high temperatures required to manufacture certain products can make hot mill environments difficult to outfit properly with adequate lighting. The main concern with lighting in hot mill environments is that drivers begin to fail with extreme exposure to heat. Hot mills are often faced with the problem of constantly replacing lighting, which is an added expense, or dealing with falling drivers. This safety concern, along with failing lighting, can be addressed with proper LED lighting solutions.
High Temperature LED Lighting
Installing LED light fixtures that are designed to withstand high temperatures can help to address poor lighting issues and lighting safety in hot mill factories. Light up these harsh environments with LED lights and products designed to withstand the heat. Certain LED lighting is designed to withstand an operating temperature of up to 100 degrees Celsius without a driver. This allows lights to withstand the higher temperature without the fear of falling drivers.
Temperature Control Modifications
In addition to LED lights that withstand high heat, there are other modifications that can be made. For example, there are remote mount options that allow drivers to be mounted in a temperature-controlled box away from all the heat. Additionally, modifications such as a glass lens upgrade can be added to allow lights to withstand heat of higher temperatures of up to 760 degrees Celsius. LEd lights also have the option to add diffuser lenses to protect lights from corrosion over time.
