De Facto offers a cutting-edge technology for cataphoretic coating of metal objects to protect them from corrosion. Moreover, the company runs a fully-automated industrial powder coating plant that allows for accurate and uniform coating of treated parts while maintaining the corrosion protection. In order to increase comfort work at the coating workstations and reduce the cost of electricity used for lighting, the investor decided to replace the luminaires. We offerred a lighting solution based on robust and energy-efficient lamps made with LED technology. Our design met all the requirements for luminaires in the coating plant, so the investor chose our offer to upgrade the lighting.

Challenges in the lighting retrofit project

Replacing luminaires in high temperature areas.

The task involved replacing inefficient fluorescent lamps with highly efficient LED sources at the powder coating workstations. Working furnace in the area made the indoor temperature much higher. That required installation of luminaires which could withstand the high temperatures at the ceiling. In doing so, we had to also remember that the painted surfaces should evenly illuminated .

Retrofitting of lighting in the powder coating plant – implementation and solutions

Choice of lamps for the coating areas.

In our design, we were aware that coating of metal elements requires great precision, hence higher light intensity. Considering the specific nature of the plant operation, we installed sealed Ultima LED HPTluminaires, which are designed for use in areas with high air temperatures, up to 70°C. With this solution, we have tripled the average light intensity at workstations. Ultima LED HPT is distinguished by a low level of glare, and this application made it possible to obtain high uniformity of lighting, which significantly improved comfort and quality of work at the workstations where the coatings are applied. We acomplished all that while reducing electricity consumption by 67% over the year.
