Quorn Foods, a leader in meat alternative produce, has replaced the fluorescent tubes at its 13,000 sq. ft. North Yorkshire manufacturing site with high-performance, energy efficient T8 LED tubes from the Goodlight™ range.
Goodlight T8 tubes draw just 22W, giving Quorn Foods a direct energy saving of 60% compared to the 55W fluorescent tubes that they replaced. Quorn also achieved significant additional energy savings from the reduction in the load on the air conditioning systems.
As a food manufacturing site, Quorn Foods needs to maintain the temperature on the production floor at a consistent 10 degrees C. Even when the outside temperature is below this figure, the heat generated by the machinery and the lighting means that air-conditioning is required.
LED Eco Lights Goodlight T8 tubes are a direct replacement for standard T8 fluorescent tubes, and are available in daylight, natural and warm white colour temperatures. They feature rotatable pins for precise focussed lighting, and are available with frosted or clear polycarbonate diffusers. Goodlight LED T8 tube lamps are available in emergency versions for use with battery back-up and are fully dimmable.
