ZALUX launches its new ATEX lighting portfolio for the oil and gas sector

ZALUX OilReviewME Strongex 061120 pictureThanks to its 40 years experience in weatherproof lighting, European manufacturer ZALUX is a reference in the manufacturing of protected luminaires

The challenging needs of the oil and gas sector have lead ZALUX to launch its new ATEX luminaires catalogue, with high-quality lighting solutions for explosive atmospheres.

The company is a registered vendor in some major EPC companies and promotes its products to oil and gas end-users globally, with projects in more than 70 countries, like Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Jordan or Egypt.

ZALUX luminaires are manufactured in Europe, complying with ATEX – IECEX standards, as well as CE and ROHS marks. They are guaranteed for five years and have a long lifetime up to 100,000 hours with very low maintenance, which is an advantage where luminaires are installed in hard to reach locations.

The new STRONGEX for Zone 2

In hazardous areas, product safety is fundamental to protect workers, during operation and also in its installation and maintenance. With these needs in mind, ZALUX has developed the new STRONGEX 2, whose robustness is one of the greatest of the ATEX lighting market thanks to its outstanding IP69K resistance.

It is suitable for outdoor, even in off-shore and chlorinated atmospheres or where there are ammonia or sulphur vapours, thanks to its high chemicals resistance and IK10 impact protection, and has a wide operation range from -35ºC to +55ºC.

Its reliability, combined with a great lighting quality, offers high energy efficiency. Luminaires can be wireless dimmed and controlled via Low Energy Bluetooth. When combined with presence and daylight sensors, light use is optimised, increasing luminaire lifetime and allowing savings up to 70% in the electricity bill.

Luminaires for ATEX Zones 1 and 2

ZALUX ATEX lighting portfolio includes luminaires to cover a wide range of needs.

-- KRATEX is a complete solution with increased safety for Zone 1. Its “db” protection mode and T6 temperature class make it suitable for almost any explosive atmosphere. With PC or glass enclosures, temperature range up to 55°C and various control systems.

-- OREX offers up to 40,000lm for the highest installations in Zone 1 and 2 from -32ºC to 55ºC ambient temperature. Its aluminium body with tempered glass diffuser makes it resistant to weather and harsh industry conditions. DALI control can be added to improve efficiency, as well as accessories to facilitate installation.

-- ACQUEX is a simple and reliable luminaire for Zone 2. With IK10 impact protection, different lengths, high luminous efficiency, DALI control and emergency kit, it offers great flexibility.

Based in Spain, and a member of the TRILUX Group, one of the strongest lighting companies in Europe, ZALUX has launched recently its new website, where ATEX luminaires are highlighted, symbolising their commitment to the oil and gas sector.
