What is an Intrinsically Safe Flashlight
When a flashlight claims to be intrinsically safe, it means that the flashlight is able to be used within hazardous environments. Hazardous environments may have ignitable gases, vapors, or liquids, ignitable dust, or ignitable fibers. Different hazardous materials will be different depending on the hazardous environment. For example, a textile mill may have ignitable fibers whereas a gasoline storage facility will have inflammable gas.
An intrinsically safe flashlight is specifically designed to not produce sparks. This is especially important as you do not want any electronic device to produce sparks that could potentially ignite any hazardous material that is around. The internal components of an intrinsically flashlight will also be unable to reach a high enough temperature that would ignite the hazardous material in the location as well.
Finally, it's important to check the safety ratings of any intrinsically safe flashlight to know which environments it is able to be used in. Fenix provides certificates that prove their flashlights have passed the necessary tests by the IECEx, ATEX, and CSA. The Fenix WF series details exactly what kind of environments each flashlight is able to be used in so each user can be confident knowing that the flashlight is safe in certain hazardous environments.
Now we've covered what an intrinsically safe flashlight is and how the Fenix WF series flashlights are intrinsically safe, let's talk about their durability. These LED flashlights are crafted from rugged material and are impact resistant and water resistant. Not only that, Fenix provides a limited lifetime warranty to back up all of their flashlights so you know that you can trust their products.
With the WF series, either a part of the flashlight or the body of the flashlight will be made with an explosion proof anti-static plastic. Whenever part of the flashlight is explosion proof, it is developed to contain an explosion if that were to happen. In hazardous environments, this can be an imperative safety feature which is exactly why Fenix included it in their WF series flashlight designs.
Versatile LED Flashlights
When you're at work, you want to be able to use your tools easily and quickly. This is why Fenix designed the WF series flashlights with simple user interfaces and multiple output levels. The simple user interface allows you to operate the flashlight easily while the multiple output levels provide various degrees of brightness depending on the situation you're in. While a turbo mode is nice, the lower outputs can help conserve battery or prevent any disorientation in close spaces.
These LED flashlights are designed to be powered by easy to purchase batteries, specifically AA or AAA alkaline batteries. Most stores you come across will have them and they're not expensive especially when compared to other batteries such as CR123A batteries or even lithium-ion batteries. Alkaline batteries are reliable, provide a lot of energy, and have a higher shelf life than many other batteries.
Working in a hazardous environment such as coal preparation plants, petroleum refineries, and other industrial work settings, it's important to ensure the safety of every worker. Make sure you have the safest gear available to you starting with an LED flashlight. If you’re searching for an intrinsically safe flashlight, you've come to the right section where Fenix provides the WF series intrinsically safe flashlights.
