Sphere of versatility
20 August 2021
Maintenance work at essential service installations like petrochemical plants and refineries has continued apace throughout the pandemic creating strong demand for specialist hire equipment.
Often there is a requirement for ATEX-approved items designed for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. However, much work takes place in areas of a site that are not as hazardous and where more conventional solutions can be used.
Shindaiwa has just introduced its Site Sphere light, a compact non-ATEX unit that complements the company’s popular M1 light, which does carry the certification.
Available in 24V and 110V versions, the Site Sphere consumes only 30W and multiple units can be linked together: ten of the 24V model, or 25 in the case of the 110V unit. It also has an IP54 rating against water and dust ingress.
To facilitate positioning, the lamp has an integral hanging hook, a magnetic mount and a 6mm threaded hole for a tripod.
Plastic protectors are available to prevent damage during painting and shot blasting operations in industrial environments, and the globe-shaped unit is designed for impact and drop resistance.
Shindaiwa’s sales director Tom Page says the product is suitable for use in areas requiring extra-low voltage lighting, such as tanks or vessels, and in similar locations.
