Larson Electronics’ Magnalight line now includes an explosion-proof LED light that produces more light with less heat and lower current draw than its standard incandescent explosion-proof light. The EPL-PM-1X30LED-100 is equipped with a handle, pedestal mount, 100-foot cord and explosion-proof plug, and is suited for cleaning tanks and vessels in hazardous locations.

The 30-watt Par 38 LED bulb delivers 5,400 lumens and draws a 10th of the electric power of the 300-watt incandescent version, producing less heat – 55 degrees Fahrenheit compared to the incandescent bulb’s 190 degrees F – and brighter and whiter light with a 50,000-hour bulb life, which means it can run nonstop for 5½ years. The solid-state bulb won’t break if the light is knocked over.
