By creating a safe area inside an enclosure, general-purpose equipment can be used in hazardous (classified) areas.
With Bebco EPS Purging/ Pressurization components & accessories:
- General-purpose equipment can be installed in the protected enclosure and used safely in the hazardous area.
- Flammable gas collected inside the enclosure is removed & the accumulation of gases or ignitable dust within the pressurized enclosure is prevented.
One of the best benefits of purging / pressurization is use of the standard Type 4/12 enclosure as the protected enclosure. This saves money, weight & space over explosion proof methods.
Pepperl+Fuchs offers a full range of purge and pressurization equipment to meet the needs of your application. The Pepperl+Fuchs Systems and Solutions group can also design custom enclosure solutions.
