Neftochim refinery is located at Neftochim, Bulgaria, a plant for processing gas compressor for petrochemical plant whose engineering construction company is Total. The areas requesting explosion proof lighting include distillation processing and catalyzing processing areas.
Refineries are commonly faced with the growing challenge of keeping up with uptime, budget and regulatory requirements despite aging equipment. Operating around the clock in harsh environments also demands the utmost in visibility and illumination to support worker safety. With today's modern light-emitting diode (LED) technology delivering increased energy efficiency, lowered maintenance costs and improved light quality, lighting upgrades present a great opportunity for refineries to cut costs while bettering work environments.
When a refinery was looking to modernize its lighting systems to provide a better environment for personnel, it sought a solution that could also reduce ongoing maintenance, replacement and energy costs. The increasing costs incurred from the aging high-pressure sodium (HPS) and incandescent lighting technology began to compound, and the refinery knew it needed to collaborate with an industrial lighting expert to develop a solution that would continue to deliver benefits well into the future.
Exceeding the refinery's expectations as a HPS replacement for overall light quality and durability, SUREALL explosion proof high bay lighting provided full-spectrum lighting and custom distribution at a fraction of the energy consumption. The robust design provides protection from flammable vapors, gases, corrosive chemicals and liquids to withstand the harshest of environments and has a lifespan more than six times that of typical luminaires.
The explosion proof linear led light was implemented to provide the refinery with uniform, crisp light in low-mounted applications. An ideal replacement for traditional 100- 200W incandescent applications, the luminaires comply with led in Class 1, Div. 2 locations to provide the safety and performance required in downstream applications. The 20w LED system can also help save up to 85 percent in energy costs, and provides a rated life of up to 50,000 hours for nearly 10 years of maintenance-free lighting.
SUREALL is a company with explosion proof Led refinery lighting. To make the safe environment, the gas station is usually located in remote places. LED refinery lighting play an important role in offering proper lighting across the oil cracking site, which is to have 24/7 operation of the oil refinery especially at night. SUREALL LED refinery lighting is made with strong aluminum alloy and high durability lens. It will very flammable for the interior environment because of high concentrations of gasoline and or the CH4. A little bit of spark will cause disastrous results like explosion or being on fire.
Choosing a right explosion proof lighting fixture for a refinery is the first factor you consider the safety, SUREALL engineer team come to review the classification and division of all requested areas of refinery with design team of users, we warmly offered comprehensive support as below:
> Project Site Investigation and Communication
> Class/Division Classification
> Gas Group Classification
> Lighting Layout Planning
> Lighting Structure Design
> Lighting Parameters Verification
> On-site Installation Guide and Training
Following an extensive inspection by lighting experts, the refinery replaced HPS and incandescent fixtures with SUREALL explosion proof high bay lighting SHB Series with ceiling mounting, stanchion 30° mounting, pendant pole mounting for class 1 div 1 hazardous locations and explosion proof high bay lighting SHB-II Series with wall mounting, ceiling mounting, and explosion proof flood lighting SHF-IIA Series with fixed mounting bracket for class 1 div 2 hazardous areas, explosion proof exit sign SES Series for exit areas.
"When we firstly introduce SUREALL to replace HPS explosion proof high bay light, we found the design meet our installation need precisely. No matter expertise, flexibility or advice at any time from SUREALL engineers are some of the key factors involved in the repeated successful collaboration. If our group are looking for a standard or customized solution with a large number of challenges, we may recommend SUREALL explosion proof lighting again", Nicolas said, the quality control leader from users.
