Located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA
New Mexico is the fifth-largest state by land size in the U.S. Despite its arid image, much of New Mexico is covered by heavily forested mountains in the north. The Sangre de Cristo Mountains are the southernmost part of the Rocky Mountains.
The economy of New Mexico is dependent on resource extraction and agriculture, specifically oil drilling, mineral extraction, dryland farming, cattle ranching, acequia and landrace agriculture, and lumber milling. More recently retail trade, scientific research laboratories, technological development, as well as the arts, especially textiles and visual arts have contributed. As of 2018, its total gross domestic product (GDP) was $101 billion with a GDP per capita of $45,465.
Nemalux Industry Match
Oil & Gas
Nemalux luminaires are workhorses of the O+G industry. All luminaires are available for hazardous location applications.
In upstream applications, high lumens luminaires such as the AR or ZLM, are ideal for high mast applications such as drilling towers. The ZLM design employs active ventilation to reduce its weight, giving it one of the lighting industrys’ highest lumens/pound ratios. The ZLM comes as a general location single, double, or quad, and these can be stacked together as well. A single weighs 10kg and outputs 28,840 lumens (IESNA type 2), double weighs 20kg and outputs 57,680 lumens (IESNA type 2), and a quad weighs 40 kg and outputs 115,350 lumens (IESNA type 2). Along with very directional optics for concentrated illumination. It is ideal for use in high mast, area lighting on mobile, remote drilling rigs. The low weight/high lumens ZLM is easily raised to the top of the lightweight tower for wide-area lighting. For maintenance, it is easily lowered to the ground where it can be serviced. Where a more permanent hazardous location-approved lighting solution is required and where luminaire weight is not an issue, the AR class I div 2 luminaire weighs 16.4 kg and outputs 31,670 lumens (IESNA type 2). If no optics is required and the general location, the AR-H-Gen can output 48,940 lumens (IESNA type 2).
In other upstream applications, Nemalux GS DC luminaires have been used in equipment controller cabs in oilwell command centers during oil and gas drilling operations, where clear visibility is required. In drilling site temporary shelters, the BL has been used as a replacement for vapor-tight fluorescent lights. Its wire-thru capability allows multiple units to be strung together in a long line. During nighttime operation, good color rendering is important so that workers can differentiate colors and hazard identification. Properly engineered lighting systems enhance overall areal perspective and visibility while minimizing glare and shadowing. In oil and gas environments, safety is paramount.
In midstream applications, Nemalux luminaires find many applications on tank farms. Each storage tank in a tank farm has walkways and staircases that require illumination for safe nighttime access. The MR is an ideal luminaire for such applications. It is rated Class I Div 2 and is ideal for low bay applications mounting at heights of 8 feet or less, with versatile optical profiles and mounting options to for convenient sparing. Nemalux also offers a variety of support structures to enable mounting the MR onto the walkway including swivel poles, straight poles, articulated support (Artsu), and handrail mount to fit every walkway possibility. Turnkey lighting packages make installation a snap, saving on install costs. Staircases and walkways leading to the top of the tank require good lighting, for safe movement, regular visual inspection and other maintenance duties necessary to ensure the safe operation of each tank. Nemalux offers a variety of tank top lighting systems with options of custom solar power design with the GS DC linear luminaire, or for non-solar applications, the MR or EXC. large yards in tank farms can be illuminated with the MR or the AR high bay luminaire flooding the yard and tank farm auxiliary buildings can be illuminated with XR-20 high bays inside or flood light tilted outside the building. In compressor applications, the GS DC series of linear luminaires allow mounting in walkways and for low voltage control and distribution panels. The XCANLED series is used extensively in compressor station applications, where it was interfaced to a custom control panel that changed colors of the luminaire to alert persons of an H2S alarm. XCANLEDs have also been used to replace High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamps in remote compressor applications.
Nemalux lighting applications are designed for all mining environments. With customizable light beam profiles and a variety of applications, Nemalux can deliver a beam profile to identify tripping hazards, find ore up a working face, or detect interesting features on a conveyor belt. At the same time, our applications are durable, as they are rated for any situation a mine could encounter.
Lighting is critical in mines if you look at the history of safe lighting in Mining, as staff relies upon the correct light profile to avoid physical hazards and other dangers. As a carefully crafted beam profile can increase productivity in open mines, it can also improve perception in underground mines. By focusing the tuned portable light beam on a working face, you will allow miners to improve coal or ore shearing.
Open Pit Mines
Open-pit mines are naturally large areas that need to be illuminated. Equipment such as crushers sits on large open areas, crushing quarried stones and generating clouds of dust. The AR and XR are ideal for operating in these extreme environments with an industrial design that enables them to operate at an optimal temperature range even in the presence of constant grime. Larger fin spacing, triple-coated surface, and a surface designed to support debris shedding enable operation in the dustiest environment. IP 66 & 67 ingress protection allows operators to hose down the luminaires in the unlikely event that debris does accumulate. Their large lumen output, especially the AR, allows it to be used in high mast applications to illuminate wide areas with the lowest possible power.
The BL is a replacement for vapor-tight fluorescent lights that have long been used in the mining industry. Following the tradition of innovation in the mining industry, the BL improves upon fluorescents in lifetime, lumens output, durability, and power consumption. A thru wiring mode allows BL’s to be chained together in long runs as commonly practiced in the mining industry, following the contours of long mining tunnels. The large surface area of the BL fixture results in a very high cooling rate, giving it exceptional performance in the elevated temperatures of mines.

Nemalux offers lighting solutions for the factory, whether it is high bay general lighting or focused task lighting. The Nemalux AR is used for both indoor high bay applications or for outdoor area lighting of large work yards. The MR is a direct replacement for legacy 75-150 W HID lamps. It is also an excellent luminaire for plant walkways, catwalks, platforms, and staircases. For night shift work, Nemalux offers luminaires emitting in blue end of the spectrum to help keep workers alert. Nemalux realizes that many medium-sized companies do not have their own lighting design engineering department. For this reason, Nemalux offers its no-obligation, complementary lighting layouts to plant operators who need accurate information to make their next lighting upgrade decision, a service worth thousands of dollars.
Military & Aerospace
Military operations often have a need for the most robust and durable technologies, including lighting technologies. Nemalux luminaires have been used in wind tunnel testing facilities and on rocket launchpads where harsh and extreme temperatures close to rocket engines persist. Nemalux is also well equipped for boutique, custom designs for demanding military and aerospace applications that require luminaires that meet very unique specifications. We welcome customer inquiries for luminaires that operate in the most extreme and demanding environments and our designers can also perform spectrum engineering if your scientific, technological, or engineering application requires very specific wavelengths and intensity levels.
Nemalux offers the AR, an NSF-certified luminaire that is designed to excel in the harsh food processing environment. The AR is rated IP66/67 and its industrially designed package is shaped to prevent biofouling. The high color rendering index, allows food quality and safety inspectors to see true colors. Nemalux luminaires are all available with hazardous location ratings for application in explosive dust environments such as grain silos. For more information, go to our food processing application page.
