LED Lighting for Food Processing - Food Grade Lighting Systems
||Food Processing Facilities require wash down lights that can work and operate in a potentially cold and damp environment.

Food Processors need to be clean environments, including your food processing lighting fixtures. Cleanliness is paramount. And so everything in a food processing plant must be washed down and cleaned. This ensures that no contaminants get into the food supply of the nation. With that, the lights installed in a food processing facility need to be able to withstand streams of water from a high pressure wash. So having lighting systems that are water tight and water rated is extremely important in a plant that processed food. However, food grade lighting systems, other benefits become apparent...
Indoor LED Lights for Food Processor
Food grade indoor lights are almost always water proof and need to comply with strict standards. Our LED lights for this environment are at least IP65 rated, some as high as IP67 (which are wet location lighting fixtures). We also offer a line of vapor tight products that also ensure that harsh environments don't become hazardous environments because of lighting. These benefits allow our fixtures to meet food industry lighting standards and requirements.
Lights you find indoors at a Food Processor
LED High Bays can replace Metal Halide High Bays up to 1500W and reduce your energy consumption by as much as 75%. These lights are perfect for gyms, warehouses, factories, auditoriums or any large area where traditional style high bays are installed. UL Listed and DLC Qualified with 5 year warranties.
These fixtures appear in hallways and stairwells, and are long linear fixtures typically contains fluorescent tubes. They are sometimes called vandal proof fixtures, because their lenses are somewhat indestructible. In the world of LED, there are similar type fixture, called LED Vapor Tight, that allows for great general lighting and is also available with a vandal proof lens
Fluorescent troffers are typically found in suspended ceilings, and they typically contains 2 to 4 fluorescent tubes. Most tubes are either T8, T10 or T12. There are two distinct options that are available, replace the fixture with LED Panels or replace the tubes with LED Tubes. The tube option tends to be more economical, and with the creation of plug and play led tubes, converting over to LED is as simple as removing the old fluorescent tube and replacing it with the LED tube.
LED Retrofit Kits are designed to replace Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium in your existing fixture. This is nothing more than replacing your existing bulb and ballast with the LED Retrofit Kit Head and LED Driver. 11 kits are available to replace everything from 70W to 1500W HID, making them a good option for any LED HID retrofit conversion. Extremely efficient up to 165 lumens/watt and DLC Premium Qualified to maximize your rebates!
Outdoor LED Lights for Food Processor
Outdoor lights typically consist of parking lot lights as well as flood lights and wall packs. They typically are metal halide or high pressure sodium lights ranging from as low as 100 Watts all the way to 1000 Watts. As with all conversions to LED, you can choose to either replace or retrofit the existing fixtures. The benefits of converting are many - reduced energy consumption, reduced maintenance, brighter outdoor areas as well as a safer environment. Many of the lights, replacement or retrofit, are DLC and DLC Premium Qualified so they are eligible for utility rebates, making the conversion process easier on the pocketbook and reducing the payback periods, sometimes significantly.
LED area lighting options can replace your existing fixtures and we have the power to replace everything from 250-1000W Metal Halide. These long lasting LED Lights are extremely efficient when it comes to creating light while using very little electricity to do so. UL Listed, DLC Qualified, these lights will provide you with years of trouble free life.
LED Wall Packs are a very cost effective method of replacing Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium fixtures. And since LED does not produce UV light, there is no worry that the lenses will yellow over time. Our LED Wall Packs are either UL or ETL Listed, DLC Qualified and are backed with a 5 year warranty and should give you 10+ years of maintenance free life
Also called Cobra Heads, these lights are what you find on the parking lots and roadways of the a facility or public area. They typically tend to be small wattage bulbs, probably 70-100W. With these lights, you can retrofit them with a LED Retro Fit Kit or replace then with a new LED Street Fixtures. These street lights are either UL or ETL Listed, most are DLC Qualified for rebates and are backed with at least a 10 year warranty.
4 Reasons to Convert over to Food Grade LED Fixtures
1. Higher Quality of Light:
Our food grade LED lights are better sources of light for two reasons.
First, the quality of light, measured as CRI, or Color Rendering Index
is typically higher most if not all the times than the traditional light
sources they replace. LED's CRI starts at 70 on a scale of 0-100. The
proper lighting for food processing is paramount when it comes to
quality assurance and consistency in a food processing plant
environment. With high quality of light produced from LEDs, you can
ensure quality and consistency in your production line.
2. Safer and Better Work Environment:
Being able to see and inspect food is important, and having a high
quality light source aids in that process. And providing better light
creates a better and safer work environment for the workers as well.
Food safe LED lights create a safer work environment all while
protecting the integrity of your food products.
3. Save Energy and Save Money:
A typical 400W Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium fixture uses
approximately 75% more power than if used a LED Light source. This is
real $'s that you are overspending, month after month. The majority of
our LED lights are DLC Qualified and eligible for rebates. All our food grade light fixtures are UL or ETL listed for safety. All our DLC lights come with
either a 5 or 10 year warranty. Many utility companies offer rebates for
DLC Qualified or Energy Star certified products, saving even more
4. IP Rated Washdown Fixtures:
In a food processing environment, it is important to be able to wash
down the environment including the lighting fixtures. This means that
the lights must be able to withstand jets of water which will require
sealing lighting fixtures to get it done right. The standard for this is
call IP, and it is a series of 2 digits. The first digit represents the
fixtures ability to keep dust from entering the fixture, the second
digit represents the fixtures ability to keep water out of the fixture.
An IP rating of 65 or greater is recommended and often times will be
acceptable for your food processing lighting requirements within your
facility, making our food processing LED lighting
options a perfect fit.
