A zone 1 airturbo floodlight powered by compressed air offers a safer alternative to low voltage lighting in dangerously wet conditions or in flammable gases and vapour situations. Supplied with a tripod and hose. Filters must be used with this unit, these can be supplied on request. Requires and airline pressure of 4 – 8 bar.

The Wolf Airturbo lamp is the longest established Wolf product still in manufacture today, although it has been upgraded many times over the years. Originally used in the Coal Mining Industry to meet the rigorous requirements of underground explosion proof lighting, it is now BASEEFA certified for use in zones 1 and 2 industrial hazardous areas. Today applications are in the Oil and Petrochemicals Industries, for tank cleaning and pipeline inspections, offering a safer alternative to low voltage lighting in dangerously wet conditions or in flammable gases and vapours. Once connected to a suitable air supply, continuous output of high quality general illumination is produced, even under water.

The Airturbo lamp has many inherent safety features recognised in the BASEEFA Approval; an effectively pressurised and purged system, a protective curtain of air from the exhaust ports, instant cut-off of the lamp if the lens is broken and cooling of heat generating components.


The lamp housings are spark free cast brass with a forged brass safety hook, all nickel plated. The generator is a compressed air driven turbo-alternator of simple design and robust construction. A gun metal impulse turbine wheel produces the energy to power the 12v 55w Tungsten Halogen bulb.

A clean dry air supply is a condition of certification and essential for the efficient running of these lamps. Deposits of dirt on the inside of the lens will adversely affect the level of illumination, but if needed, suitable air-line filters can be supplied with the lamps. Another mandatory requirement of safe use is anti-static hose, designed to avoid a dangerous build up of static electricity.
