What Goes into Successful Oil Refinery Lighting Design?

An oil refinery lighting design or calculation considers many things. The location of the lights (if any), or whether the customer wants new lights installed. Do the lights need to be explosion-proof rated?

  • How many lights do you need?
  • What type of lighting are you replacing?
  • What are the expected light levels and are there any requirements, specifications, or guidelines that need to be met?

Using a CAD drawing or layout, a refinery lighting design can incorporate all these considerations and provide a visual report of the light levels within the areas, and just as important, how balanced the light across the space will be.

What are the Benefits of Creating an Oil Refinery Lighting Plan?

It mostly removes many of the risks of blind light purchases. Buying lights and then hoping for good results has a low probability of success.

Two things you need to know – how many lumens the light fixtures produce and the beam angles/optics the lights have. Without knowing these, and understanding what you need, can result in light levels that aren’t what you want or need. Too bright or too dim, lighting that is not balanced, and full of shadows (spotty lighting) are all bad outcomes that can occur by not doing a lighting plan.

We can also do lighting plans using our explosion proof lighting.

Creating a lighting plan will resolve these issues in the software before any money is spent. And we do these lighting plans for free for our commercial and industrial customers.

What is the Best Way to Start Designing an Oil Refinery Lighting Plan?

The best way is to start with either a scaled floor plan or, if it’s a large open space, letting us know the dimensions of the area. It is also important to know the mounting height of the fixtures, and the desired light levels you will need.

Light levels are measured in foot candles. If you do not know the amount of light you need, tell us the use of the space and we can recommend the proper light level. With this information, we will have the basis for creating a lighting plan for you. Once we present the plan, we can alter it and tweak it until we get to where you need the light levels to be.

How Do I Plan the Lighting Layout for an Oil Refinery?

You don’t have to do it yourself, or even know how to do it. Our lighting plan service does that for you.

We first need some information from you – like – the building dimensions, light levels you need, quantity and wattage of current fixtures, and input voltage. We will do the rest.

Our lighting plans will calculate:

  1. Total number of fixtures needed
  2. Where they should be placed
  3. Average foot candles in the area
  4. How balanced the light is within the space

How Do You Choose the Right LED Light Fixtures for an Oil Refinery?

Getting this right is imperative.  However, we can help you make the right decision and choose the right hazardous location lighting fixtures that will light up your area and keep you safe. Contact us today and we can help.

What Will the Lighting Plan Show Me?

It will show you visually the foot candles on the ground, and calculate the light balance (represented by the average/minimum foot candle calculation)
