When you are working in a closed environment, and need to use industrial lighting to make sure that your workers can see, you have to find something which is reliable and secure. You will need lighting that is designed to be used in dangerous positions and are intended to prevent the possibility of a spark becoming an ignition source. With class 1 division 1 LED lighting, the potential for a spark is reduced by having the spark housed in hard-wearing material that is intended to contain the spark.
What Is The Situation?
Hazardous conditions where there are a high likelihood of vapors and gases that could become ignited are known as class 1 locations. This is an area where there is a high likelihood of danger, and the gases and vapors could build up to the point where they are capable of producing an explosion, or mingle together with a high potential for ignition. In areas of specific danger, the classes may be divided into one of two divisions. Division 1, the class we are interested in, is an area where the atmosphere may lead to an explosive mixture of particular vapors, gases or liquids. This can occur during normal working situations, and is the most common type of Division 1. This division also covers areas where gases often occur due to maintenance or repair requirements, or where equipment breakdown may cause the release of gases or vapors in flammable concentrations. Unsurprisingly, the type of lighting in these situations must be there to prevent the potential for ignition.
The Type Of Lighting You Should Use
In order to prevent ignition from occurring with flammable gases, it is essential that you only choose lights which are compatible with a Class 1 Division 1 requirement. LED lighting is particularly good for this type of operation, as the spark which is required to initiate the light can be surrounded by heavy duty materials intended to prevent the ignition of surrounding gases. Because the heavy-duty material prevents the spark from reaching the atmosphere, and also prevents gases from arriving in the area of the spark, the LED lights effectively prevent the spark and the gas coming together to create a flammable situation. By buying a light which is compatible with a class I situation, you can prevent a very dangerous fire.
