We have been making miners lamps at our Eccles works since 1890. We do not make replica lamps. The authentic mining lamps we sell ( also known as Davy lamps or flame safety lamps) were all made by us at Eccles factory over the last 60 years. They are fully refurbished in our original Lamp Works in Eccles.
Type 6 Deputies Relighter Lamp
The Type 6 is a flame safety mining lamp used for gas testing in coal mines. This miners lamp will safely burn methane/firedamp without causing an explosion.
It is a development of our earliest safety lamps, first made in 1873, and incorporates the Protector self extinguishing system developed and patented by Joseph Prestwich, the driving force of the company in the late Victorian period. It was tested and approved for use in mines in the 1940’s.
Following Nationalisation in 1947 it became the approved lamp for all UK Coal mines which were operated by the Ministry of Power under the Labour Government. As the State did not want to create a monopoly supplier they also introduced lamps from Wolf and Thomas & Williams.
If you are planning a torch relay or flame transfer you will need an air approved lamp and seat cradle, please email; firstname.lastname@example.org
