Paramount Lighting Proves Really Cool…

Nabi Biopharmaceuticals

Biotest Pharmaceuticals Corporation (fromerly Nabi Biopharmaceuticals) is a company focused on developing vaccines and antibody-based products to prevent and treat infectious and addictive diseases, such as staph aureus, hepatitis B and nicotine addiction. One of the manufacturing facilities is located in Boca Raton, Florida. Paramount Industries was prescribed for lighting the additional warehouse freezer space.

The electrical contracting in this new storage area was handled by Proton Electric. They needed to find a lighting system that could start well in extremely low temperatures. The freezer maintains a constant -35°F. Proton turned to Steve Kosowsky at Power & Lighting Systems in Deerfield Beach.

Steve proposed using the H9 Series Cube Lite from Paramount Industries in Croswell, MI. This compact surface-mount luminaire features Sylvania’s ICETRON™ electrode-less fluorescent lamp. The ICETRON that was utilized in this project was a 100 watt lamp and ballast system with a color temperature of 4100K. It is mostly known for its very long rated life of 100,000 hours, which reduces maintenance costs. It also starts as low as -40°F.

The very low temperature starting capability and the long life are a winning combination for the Nabi Biopharmaceuticals project. The lights are on 24/7 in an environment that makes frequent light maintenance impractical.

The H9 Series Cube Lites were installed on the 20ft high ceiling, centered over the aisles between racks. Since the chillers were turned on, the lights have performed flawlessly. Nabi and Proton have been pleased with the results.
