Heavy Industry - creates serious challenges for lighting applications!
- Ingress - wet location
- Airborne elements /contaminants
- Extreme temperatures
- High / Difficult mounting locations
- Shadowing issues
- Interference with specialized equipment
- Challenging site areas where mounting lights / lighting placement / running conduit - is difficult
Most importantly, there is often production down-time to replace, repair or modify lighting systems or arrangements - and often contributes to the most expensive element of a lighting upgrade.
PTLX Global, established in Mining applications, has provided lighting solutions for Heavy Industry and Equipment, ranging from Waste water - Treatment, Power generation, Metals Recycling, Chemical; Forestry - Pulp & Paper; Steel, Iron and Foundry applications. We've worked in Potash, Coal, Taconite, and other Heavy metals, where illumination and performance is reduced by dust and sediment. We've developed and manufactured ballistic grade lighting to withstand the specific challenges of Heavy Industrial facilities. Our fixtures are designed to push more lumen per watt than our best competitors, withstand the environments with which they are intended, and provide enduring illumination over very long periods of constant operation.
