Retrofit solution minimizes costly maintenance for producer Woodville Pork
DES MOINES and MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 28, 2015
Engineered Products Company (EPCO), a supplier of specialty lighting and wiring consumable products for electrical contractors, is helping swine producers save lighting and fixture maintenance costs with the LED upgrade for its ProSeries Utility Light Fixture that combines energy-efficiency with wet-location protection. EPCO is exhibiting the ProSeries LED Upgrade in booth 1039 at the Iowa Pork Congress in Des Moines’ Iowa Events Center, January 28-29.
After retrofitting fluorescent utility fixtures with LED luminaires at his 2,500-head swine production facility at Woodville Pork, Waseca, Minn., with the ProSeries LED Upgrade, Co-owner Chris Selthun raves about the time-savings. “We used to have to make a trip every week to buy CFLs or incandescent replacement lamps and deal with changing them out. Our 3,000-psi pressure washer is proof that the LED luminaire lives up to the product’s claim. In fact, when we added a new cold storage facility, there was no question about installing the ProSeries Utility Light Fixture. Plus, we figured with the rebate we’d see a three-year return on investment.”
The ProSeries LED Upgrade is the most cost-effective way for swine producers to take a giant economical and energy-savings leap to 50,000 hours of lumen output from 8,000 hours (compact fluorescent lamp) or 1,000 hours (incandescent lamp).“Minimal service maintenance, quick and easy installation, and rebates from the building owner’s local electric utility make the total ownership cost of the ProSeries LED Fixture the lowest,” said EPCO President Jack Schuster. He added that the ProSeries LED Upgrade junction box adapter works with all junction boxes.
EPCO’s Iowa Pork Congress, which runs through, March 31, 2015, entitles buyers to receive one free ProSeries LED Utility Light Fixture for every 12 ProSeries LED Utility Light Fixtures or LED Light Upgrades purchased. In addition to animal confinement locations, the ProSeries LED Upgrade is ideal for-more-indoor environments where ingress protection from dust and moisture is highly desirable, including commercial and industrial facilities, walk-in refrigerators, service/maintenance tunnels, corridors, bridges, temporary walkways, and other agricultural buildings. EPCO’s newest addition to its ProSeries Utility Light Fixture family is ETL listed for wet locations and ceiling or wall mounting and carries a three-year, 50,000-hour limited warranty. The luminaire includes a junction box, silicone gasket that seals out moisture and dust, a polycarbonate globe that protects the LED lamp and ensures even light distribution, and an LED light engine and heat sink. The LED Light Upgrade includes LED Light Upgrade, Junction Box Adapter, two Silicone Gaskets and two mounting screws.
Each ProSeries LED Utility Light Upgrade can be installed in 3 minutes.
