The new SpectraLoc LED blue spectrum suppression highbay from Hubbell Industrial Lighting is designed to virtually eliminate light wavelengths below 500 nanometers that can degrade ingredients in a variety of food and pharmaceutical production processes. It is suitable for use with most wired or wireless lighting control systems. Target opportunities include brewery, dairy, food processing, freezer, pharmaceutical, warehouse and manufacturing applications.

In milk production this light has been demonstrated to hasten the degradation of critical proteins and vitamins, especially riboflavin (B2), resulting in undesirable flavors. To alleviate blue light concerns, producers traditionally use colored packing and UV coating solutions on light fixtures. By blocking the harmful blue light, the SpectraLoc prevents photo-oxidation and ecological disruption while maintaining the efficiency and money savings of an LED luminaire. It can exceed 19,000 lumens while only consuming 112-175 watts, averaging 108 to 110 lumens per watt. By decreasing the amount of energy needed to power the lights, operators will achieve significant cost savings. Additional HVAC savings will be acquired when there is significantly less heat generated by the lighting.
