Have you ever touched a light bulb that was turned off and it was still hot? Now, imagine placing the light next to cold food for a long time. t can raise the temperature of the food and affect its freshness. In addition, the heat of the bulb can use more energy to balance the heat of the lamp.
LED lighting work differently than traditional light bulbs. Because they operate so efficiently. they produce a fraction of the heat of incandescent, HlD. and fluorescent sources. This means your cold food won’t be damaged by the unnecessary heat it’s subjected to, and you’ll save on stored energy.
LED bulbs have a standard color rendering index of 90: but can reach up to 95+CRI. There are also specialty LED products designed for key high-margin areas of supermarkets [produce and meat] to further improve product marketability. This means produce looks as fresh on your shelves as it docs on the farm, and the MCAT looks so delicious that shoppers will look forward to their next barbecue. That makes LEDlighting the perfect choice for supermarket lighting!
The filament that glows in an incandescent lamp can reach temperatures up to 610 F (250C), while the glass bulb around it reaches temperatures around 392-500 F(200-260 C) due to the heat it ermits. The operating temperature of the LED is between 68-140 “F( 20-80 C)l. Now that s a huge temperature difference.
