AIR TURBOLITE A-TL 44A & 45A
Zones 1 and 2  

Product Information

The Turbolite range is the new generation of high powered compressed air driven lighting developed from the well known Wolf Airturbo. The Turbolite is certified for use in zones 1 and 2 hazardous areas. Common applications are in the Oil and Petrochemicals Industries, for tank cleaning and pipeline inspections, offering a safer alternative to low voltage lighting in dangerously wet conditions as well as where flammable gases and vapours can accumulate in confined spaces.

Turbolite A-TL44 - has a Bay Light fitting comprising a ball glass and protective polycarbonate dome to provide all-round, general purpose illumination. A hook provides for suspension of the lamp in the working area, or for simple fastening to a folding tripod.

Turbolite A-TL45 - has a reflector head fitting for direct illumination. Polished or matt reflectors give the option of a concentrated narrow beam or diffused wide angle illumination.

The housings of the Turbolites are cast brass, a spark free material, and the safety hook is also brass, but forged for extra strength. All external parts are nickel plated. Internal components are of durable design making the products suitable for use in the harshest industrial environments. A clean dry air supply is a condition of certification and essential for the efficient running of these lamps, otherwise contamination will deposit into the inside of the lens, reducing illumination levels. Suitable air-line filters can be supplied. Another mandatory requirement is the use of anti-static hose, to prevent the generation of unsafe levels of static electricity.

The 24 volt 250 watt tungsten halogen bulb is available in two types offering a choice of 6,000 lumens for 2,000 hours or 9,000 lumens for 200 hours. All items of spare parts including bulbs and alternative reflectors are readily available from stock.

Turbolite lamps are routinely run in, tested and set to the necessary output prior to despatch. The lamps are simple and easy to maintain and supplied with full maintenance instructions and spare parts diagrams and lists. In-house training on maintenance, setting and operation of air lamps is available.
