Pelican Flashlights

Approved for Hazardous Location Use - Hazmat - Chemical - Biological - Fire Fighting


Pelican resin flashlights are designed to be safe in hazardous situations, such as volatile gases, dust and fumes.  Pelican flashlights have been designed to operate in flammable atmospheres.  Flashlights bearing Factory Mutual, Canadian Standards.  UL,  εx, CE, and Mine Safety Health Administration markings have been tested and proved to be safe in hazardous atmospheres.  They are approved safe for hazardous industrial uses, up to and including Class l, Div. 1 environments. With these approved lighting instruments, personnel do not have to worry about igniting and explosion and they can focus on the task at hand.

An additional safety related attribute of Pelican flashlights is the built in patented hydrogen purge valve that allows explosive gases to harmlessly leave the battery compartments.  In addition to this patented safety feature, pellets have been encapsulated into every Pelican flashlight.  These tiny catalyst pellets combine outgasing hydrogen discharging from batteries with ambient air trapped inside all flashlights, changing the mixture to harmless water droplets.  This serves as an additional “backup” fail-safe not found in other lights.  Battery powered flashlights are potentially dangerous due to the hydrogen gas given off by over heated battery cells exploding as the unit is turned on.

This has resulted in occasions where the flashlight can explode, causing bodily harm.  To combat this potentially dangerous situation, Pelican flashlights now incorporate a special one-way valve that allows small amounts of hydrogen gas to harmlessly escape, yet prevents the ingress of ambient explosive gases.

All federal and nationally accredited approval agencies now recognize this potential hazard and have set specific test procedures to ensure that these flashlights are not susceptible to self igniting explosions.  Many popular competitive brands have still not incorporated these safety features into their products.
