Mustard Maker G.S. Dunn Installs Dialight Durosite LED High Bay Fixtures (Video)
Jul 12, 2010 G.S. Dunn quality control and inspection facility in Hamilton, Ontario replaced 18 of its 450W metal halide units with Dialight’s DuroSite ™ LED High Bay fixtures.
To achieve the visibility needed, the company had installed 18 powerful 450-watt fixtures in the inspection facility, with each actually consuming somewhere around 540 watts of energy to run the light and the ballast. Because of the light degradation over the life of the fixtures, ensuring optimum light quality for thorough product inspection was an ongoing challenge.
In addition to light quality issues, the powerful fixtures were expensive to operate and maintain. Not only were bulb changes a costly annual occurrence, at $100 per hour in addition to the cost of the bulbs, but the company had resorted to leaving the energy-sucking lights on 24 hours a day when a third shift was needed to meet production demands. With the metal halide’s slow warm-up period, leaving the lights on proved more operationally efficient than waiting around for the lights to warm up.
