LED Paper Mill Lighting

What are the Best LED Lights for a Paper Mill?

There are many areas inside a paper mill. Some areas are dangerous, with constant sawdust and wood flyings suspended in the air at all times, or some of the time.

There are other explosive compositions used in the process of making paper. In this case, your best choice is either Class 1 Division 1 fixtures or Class 1 Division 2 fixtures. In areas where less dangerous activities occur, such as the warehousing of materials and final processed product, then standard LED High Bays are great lighting options.

For areas of high temperatures, high-temperature LED Lighting is a good option over traditional light bulbs. These lights excel in efficiency and will require little if any maintenance. They will reduce your lighting costs over traditional light sources.

Foot Candles Needed Inside a Pulp and Paper Processing Mill

This can range from process to process and room to room, but the consensus is between 20 and 70-foot candles. While that seems like a large range, some areas need more light and other areas can get by with less light.

Many of our lights are designed to replace 250 Watts, 400 Watts, and 1000 Watt Metal Halide lights, 1 for 1. That means you don’t have to install two LED lights for every metal halide light.

We offer LED Explosion Proof Lights specifically designed to replace 1000 Watts Metal Halide and have powerful High Bays for Paper Mills that can replace 2000 Watt Metal Halide. Not only can we replace it, but we can also make the place brighter.

High-Voltage 277V-480V LED Lights for a Paper Mill

We offer two voltage ranges for LED Lighting: 100-277V and 277V-480V. These drivers automatically detect and adjust the incoming voltage provided to the fixtures.

Not every fixture we have is available in high voltage, so let us know if you require a high-voltage light fixture.

Using a Vapor-Proof Light in a Paper Mill

Vapor-proof fixtures keep the outside environment from entering into the fixture. This gas or vapor could shorten the life of the fixture. But you should never use a vapor-proof light in an area that requires an explosion-proof light.

Installing LED Lights in a Pulp and Paper Mill

Any qualified electrician can easily install or swap out your existing lights with ours. If you are installing LED explosion-proof lighting, the electrician should be qualified and experienced with the local codes to ensure everything is installed to code.

How Can We Determine if Your LED Lights Will Provide Proper Light Levels Before We Purchase?

That’s easy, start with a lighting plan. Give us a scaled drawing, and we will model your facility inside our lighting software and produce a lighting plan. That way you can see how well our lights will perform before you buy.

Light Mounting Options For a Pulp and Paper Mill

We offer all of the standard fixture mounting options that you will find on most LED Lights and Old Style Lighting. This includes eye hooks, pendant mounts, and chain wire mounts. Make sure you let us know the amount you need so we can match you up with the correct lighting option.
