June 15, 2020 — Pepperl+Fuchs’ complete family of electrical explosion protection and accessories is a component in hazardous locations where people and equipment must be protected. The company’s electrical explosion protection equipment (EPE) portfolio includes a range of enclosure sizes and styles, providing design configurations for nearly all hazardous area applications.
Pepperl+Fuchs now offers globally certified enclosures and stocks several standardized sizes of explosion-proof ATEX, IECEx, and North American certified EJB and EJBX enclosures.
The Class I, Division 1, and Zone 1 enclosures are suitable for Groups B, C, and D / IIB+H2 with Type 4, 4X, 7, 9, Ex d, and IP66/67 ratings. They feature stainless-steel mounting and hinged hardware options, and are available in several sizes with optional windows. With Pepperl+Fuchs’ new 4X overpressure testing certification, empty enclosures can be purchased to tap and drill in the field.
Enclosures are manufactured from stainless steel or copper-free aluminum with increased corrosion resistance. Their durability and design meet the requirements of many industries, including offshore and marine applications. Corresponding degrees of protection and ambient temperature ranges ensure durability and safe operation. The enclosures are typically suitable for temperatures from -25 °C to +60 °C (-50 °C for ATEX/IECEx). They can be rated for temperatures as high as +120 °C.
