General Information: Power Plant Lighting | Nuclear Grade LED Lighting Systems

Using LED Lights in a Power Plant

Power plant lighting is a combination of indoor and outdoor lighting. Outdoors, these facilities need both security lighting and general lighting. It’s common to find LED Parking Lot lights used to light up large parking areas. Indoors, there is a special need for high-temperature lighting for areas of steam generation. These lights are specifically designed to handle hot environments. We also offer general lighting for non-high-temperature areas.

As with all high-power LED Lights, energy consumption from the lighting systems will be greatly reduced.

Tough LED Lighting For Industrial Applications

There are four categories of industrial lighting we can talk about.
  1. Impact rating and wet rating – look for a high impact rating (IKxx) and wet location rating (IPxx).
  2. High-temperature applications – we offer lights rated for ambient temperatures up to 212F.
  3. Hazardous location rating – we offer both explosion-proof Class 1 Division 1 and Class 1 Division 2 fixtures.

Using LED Lighting Where Radiation Could Be Present in Nuclear Power Plants

Yes, we have many nuclear-grade LED lighting fixtures that are Radiation Tolerant and have been EMC Tested. We have installed many nuclear-grade lights at several Nuclear Power Generation Facilities across the USA, some installed on the refueling floors over the reactors where temperatures can become very hot. We have been working with these types of facilities for over 10 years. Consult with your Lighting Specialist and they will recommend the proper power plant lights and solutions for your requirements

Upgrading Metal Halide Power Plant Lighting

There are times when retrofitting existing fixtures makes sense. It avoids costly engineering processes to design new lights. We can offer retrofits for both metal halide and fluorescent. When it makes sense, this can allow you to keep your existing lighting. Generally, we recommend using brand new light fixtures when upgrading old metal halide lighting to ensure peak performance.

Types of LED Lighting for Use in Nuclear Power, Thermal Power Plants, or Hydroelectric Power Plants

If we talk about indoor lighting, in the reactor building, we have lights installed in several nuclear facilities. The process starts with testing to make sure they will not affect the operation of the reactors. And then it’s about being able to handle the heat. We have supplied high-temperature lighting solutions. They’re mounted on the refueling floor above the reactors. They have worked well. The nuclear power plant lighting also uses safety wires to ensure there is no chance they come loose.

LED Lights for Power Plant Control Room Lighting

We have installed fluorescent lighting LED replacements inside control rooms. They provide high-quality flicker-free lighting improving the work conditions for the workers in this room. In many instances, we were also able to de-lamp (replacing 2 fluorescent tubes with 1 LED tube). The LED tubes were much brighter than the fluorescent tubes they replaced.

LED Lights Recommend for Emergency Lighting in a Power Plant

We have many lights that offer EMBs as an option. This includes high bay lights for power plants (UFO LED Lights and Linear), panel lights for offices, rooms, and hallways, and exit signs.

Safety Features Our LED Lights Have for Lighting for a Power Plant

We have worked with several power plant operators in several countries, and have met their safety requirements. A lot of times we provide extra safety cables to ensure the lights stay mounted on the ceiling.

Certificates LED Lights Meet Power Plant Application Ratings

There is no certification per se like UL or ETL that designates a light certified for power plant usage. We have all the UL and ETL certifications and supply our lights to operators to perform their tests. Our experience has shown that this is the testing power plant operators prefer.

High Temperature LED Lights for High Temp Areas at a Power Plant

We offer a full line of powerful high-temperature fixtures that are rated from 140F to 212F.

Can We Buy a Demo Unit First to Test?

Yes, of course, that is an option for you.

LED Lighting and Emergency Backup Options

We offer both internal and external EMB options on many of our fixture options.

Are Your Lights Made of Steel?

All our lights have aluminum casings and not steel.

Mounting Bracket for Ceilings and Walls Mounts

We offer eye hooks, pendants, and wire/chain ceiling mount options. For walls, we have trunnion/yoke mounts.

Installing LED Lights in Power Plants

Being able to withstand high temperatures and of course, safety.  The ability to retrofit an existing fixture to cut down on engineering costs.

Wiring LED Fixtures in a Power Plant

Some of our fixtures include cords/whips that wire into junction boxes. In the case of hazardous locations at the power plant, you will utilize explosion proof conduit for safety.

Do I Need to Worry About the Cord Melting in High Temperature Environments?

No. Even at 212 F, the cord should not melt.
