Western Technology, Inc. offers a full line of light systems specifically built for the Abrasive Blast industry. We built our first abrasive blast nozzle lights back in 1978. Since then, Western Technology has built a business by solving problems related to lighting critical, often difficult to get to temporary workspaces.
Western Technology’s Sandblast Lights are hose-mountable with high & low stanchions available to easily attach to blast hoses. We have air-cooled and no-air blast lights with LED and halogen options available.
Our 3400 LED series (Model 3475-80) has continued to evolve over the years and has been quoted as “the brightest light I have seen” and “hold up well in blast rooms”. We also offer our field-repairable option with replaceable parts.
What is Intrinsically Safe Lighting?
Investing in quality and reliable, intrinsically safe explosion proof LED work lights is something every hazardous area workplace should do. Western Technology Lights’ products are essential for keeping people and property safe, especially in areas where high concentrations of substances like oil, paint, gas, dust, and potentially flammable fibers are present. The meaning of “explosion proof” is rather obvious – light fixtures have a heavy-duty luminaire that surrounds the spark inducing components to keep potential explosions contained – but you may not be familiar with what “intrinsically safe” means. Intrinsically safe means the light uses a limited amount of electrical energy, so sparks cannot occur at amperages and voltages that may result in explosions in hazardous atmospheres.
This makes intrinsically safe explosion proof LED work lights a staple in industries like oil and gas, fuel storage, petrochemical refining and processing, power generation, aviation, military, food manufacturing, car manufacturing, water treatment, and more. For over 40 years, Western Technology lights has worked closely with many of these industries to ensure they have the hazardous area LED light fixtures they need to keep their employees at a reduced risk of harm and their operations safe and OSHA compliant
The process of sandblasting is always carefully monitored, and those doing the sandblasting always wear protective gear and use abrasive blast nozzle lighting. When done correctly, sandblasting is one of the most effective and efficient ways to clean and etch metal surfaces.
