Explosion Proof Fluorescent Lights for Paint Booths, Oil Rigs, Boats -2 foot - 2 lamp -Multi-voltage
View Larger Image
Part # EPL-24-2L Price: $625.89
Made in the USA
The Magnalight EPL-24-2L Explosion Proof Fluorescent Light Fixture is U.S./Canada U.L. approved Class 1 Division 1, Class II Division 1 and ideal for hazardous locations where flammable chemical/petrochemical vapors exist or have the potential to exist.
Click here to see the LED version of this
The EPL-24-2L fixture is a 2 foot long, 2 lamp, UL listed Class 1 Division 1 and Class II Division 1&2 explosion proof fluorescent light and an ideal choice for use in applications where space is at a premium. This T6 temperature rated fixture comes standard with F24-T5/HO lamps and is available with a variety of lamp options which are listed below. The lamps are protected by heat and impact resistant Pyrex tubes and the fixture is constructed of copper free aluminum alloy. The lamp reflectors are corrosion resistant heavy gauge aluminum and coated with a high gloss reflective finish. This fixture is multi-voltage capable and is U.L. approved for use in paint spray booths.
The EPL-24-2L provides operators in hazardous locations with a compact, reliable and affordable lighting solution that provides the best explosion proof protection available without sacrificing light quality or fixture durability.
NOTE ON LAMPS: We offer a choice of bulbs with all of our explosion proof fluorescent fixtures. We standardize on the T5HO bulbs mostly for their longevity and high output. However, many of our customers, including Naval bases, shipyards, oil rigs and petrochemical processing plants operate in very cold conditions and T12HO bulbs operate well in those environments. The T12VHO, 110 watt Very High Output lamps make this fixture an ideal replacement for 400 watt metal halide surface mount fixtures in hazardous location areas requiring Class 1 Division 1 rated lights. *However, the 110 watt T12VHO lamp configuration is not appropriate for paint spray booth applications.
Additional mounting options: Unless otherwise specified, our standard, most popular configuration is the bracket end mounting shown in the photos above. We also offer a pendant mount for those needing to suspend the fixture away from the ceiling surface (i.e. suspend from pipe or conduit).
Standard Bracket Mounts: Each bracket is cinched to the bracket mounting peg on each side of the light. The angle of the bracket is set by tightening two cap screws on either side of the bracket. The cap screws act as a set screw. The bracket itself is mounted via a single bolt hole at the top the bracket. There are two brackets, one on each end of the light. Once the brackets are mounted to a surface (ceiling, floor or wall), the light fixture can be removed from the brackets by loosening the cap screws that hold the bracket to the mounting peg. The first picture shown above illustrates the ballast side bracket and also shows the access caps for changing the bulbs. The second picture shows the bracket at the opposite end of the fluorescent light.
|Made in USA Quality
1. Each unit dialectically tested.
2. Fixture arrives assembled and lamped to reduce installation time and cost. Adjustable mounting brackets enable the operator to choose any mounting angle for the fixture, where other models may only offer one or three choices.
3. Fixture constructed of extruded corrosion resistant copper free aluminum alloy.
4. Over-sized, finned ballast housing for 800 mA fixtures provides more heat dissipation and extends ballast life. Ballast housing easily accessible and externally mounted. Top and bottom covers secured with nuts and bolts, instead of threaded through holes, which can be damaged with dirt.
5. Heavy gauge extruded aluminum reflectors with high gloss reflective finish. Resists dents and corrosion.
6. A wrench is used to unscrew the end caps for relamping the fixture, while other models require the “tap and knock off” method to loosen the end cap.
7. Explosion proof, impact and heat resistant Pyrex tubes provide lamp protection.
F24-T5HO – 2000 lumens per bulb (4000 lumens total), 20,000 hours life, 5000 Kelvin color, CRI 85 RHA-UNV-254-LT5 Ballast is THD<10% and HPF .98
F24-T12/HO – 1650 lumens per bulb (3300 lumens) 9,000 hours life, 4100 Kelvin color
F17-T8 – 1325 lumens per bulb (2650 lumens total), 24,000 hours life, 4100 Kelvin color
F24-T12-D-HO – 1650 lumens per bulb (3300 lumens), 9,000 hours life, 5100 Kelvin color (76 CRI - Color Rendition) - This specialty lamp is designed to mimic daylight conditions. For paint spray booth operators requiring a brighter color light than a traditional "cool white", this bulb can be useful.
Note: There is some confusion on T-12 bulbs. There are 2 types of T-12 bulbs. The older T-12 bulbs ran on magnetic ballasts. Those ballasts have vanished and the T-12 bulbs that work with those ballasts are vanishing as well. All of our explosion proof fluorescent fixtures use electronic ballasts and the F48-T12/HO bulb is widely available and low cost to replace. We use Philips bulbs and they plan to continue the T-12 series indefinitely, as does GE. In fact, GE is now selling an electronic ballast replacement for T12 based fixtures that formerly operated with their magnetic ballasts.

LED versus Fluorescent: Lumens per Watt is Only Part of the Story|
Today it is commonplace to find T8 fixtures producing on the order of 80 to 100 lumens per watt of output, putting fluorescent lighting at the top of the efficient lighting ratings in terms of lumen per watt efficiency. However, this does not tell the whole story, and other factors come into play which affect the real world efficiency of fluorescent lighting and brings it a little more down to earth. [...]
United States Hazardous Location Device Testing and Certification|
Unlike electrical devices intended for use in typical commercial or household applications, equipment used in hazardous locations must prevent, prohibit, or otherwise mitigate the dangers posed by flammable gases, vapors and materials that can create an explosive atmosphere. In order for there to be a clear manner of ensuring the minimum amount of protection a device provides, it has been necessary for federal, state and local agencies to enact regulations [...]
Choosing Spray Paint Booth Lighting and Booth Design |
A poorly lit paint booth with weak ventilation will lead to poorly matched colors and lots of finishing work to deal with paint contaminants. So, it’s best to be realistic and have a few solid ideas of what you are looking for in a paint spray booth in order to ensure that your new booth is all asset and no liability. [...]
IECex/ATEX and North American NEC HAZLOC Equipment Classification|
North America is presently not operating with the IECex/ATEX schemes although some effort has been made to produce some homogenity between North American and European Standards, most notably the US and Canada's adoption of a Zone system (NEC 505) modeled after European Schemes. However, despite the great similarity between North American and European Zone systems, they are not identical and are not interchangeable.
Hazardous Locations: Know Your Explosion Proof Classifications|
The NEC classifies hazardous locations according to three criteria, Type, Condition and Nature. The types of hazardous locations are determined according to the kind of dangerous materials or compounds that are present. An environment where flammable gases or vapors such as petrochemicals or natural gas are present in enough quantities to be potentially flammable or explosive and could be ignited by a spark or heat is considered a Class 1 hazardous location. [...]
LED Fluorescent Tube Fixtures: Efficiency Beyond Lumens vs Watts|
LEDs retain several distinct advantages over fluorescent lamps. LEDs do not require any ballast for their operation. Using entirely solid state electronics, the current and output of LEDs can be easily regulated and maintained. There is no initial startup or warm up period normally associated with ballast equipped luminaries. [...]
How Do You Know If a Light is really Explosion Proof?|
Hazardous location lighting equipment is in the simplest explanation used in places where concentrations of volatile gases, flammable dust or particulates, or flammable chemicals are high enough to present a danger of ignition that can lead to explosion or fire. [...]
Spray Booth Lights: Which Type for Best Results?|
Most paint spray booths utilize one of two types of lighting fixtures in their design, either fluorescent tubes, or high intensity discharge lamps. Incandescent lamps are poor choices for spray booth applications because they are highly inefficient, have very short life-spans, and produce copious amounts of heat during their operation. [...]
Confined Space Lighting for Hazardous Locations |
Confined spaces represent some of the most dangerous work places in commercial industries. Because of their enclosed nature confined spaces are poorly ventilated and allow volatile gases, fumes, vapors, and particulates to accumulate and increase in atmospheric density to potentially explosive levels. Confined spaces represent a hazardous work area and are loosely defined by a few general characteristics. [...]
“Explosion Proof”: Its Not Just a Label|
Hazardous work areas are one of the most demanding environments for the workers and equipment that must operate within them. The often confined spaces combined with the presence of volatile materials presents a serious danger of fires and explosions that must be adequately addressed to insure the safety of workers and the public in both the work space and the surrounding area. [...]
Explosion Proof and Intrinsically Safe: There is a Difference|
When it comes to explosion proof lighting many people have trouble understanding exactly what the term means. Factor in that there is also the term “intrinsically safe light” which is related to explosion proof lighting, and the fact that few people have had the benefit of a good layman explanation of the terms, and it becomes clear that there is plenty of room for confusion. [...]
Explosion Proof Lights: Lessening the Danger in Hazardous Work Areas|
Hazardous work areas present special challenges for the workers and businesses that must operate within them. These work areas are often confined rooms or containers like fuel tanks where vapors and gases from work activities can become concentrated to dangerous levels. As well as the obvious dangers posed by inhalation of these contaminants are the not so obvious dangers that can have lethal consequences if not properly addressed. [...]
