Pepperl+Fuchs has introduced an advanced Bebco EPS purge and pressurization system, designed for Class I or II/Div. 2 and Zone 2/22 locations. This compact manual or automatic system delivers all the features needed for reliable hazardous location protection within a small, streamlined solution.
The 7500 series Ex pzc/Type Z purge and pressurization system can be fully automatic or manual and purges a common enclosure of hazardous gas or dust to maintain positive pressure. It effectively reduces the classification within the protected enclosure to a non-hazardous area. The 7500 carries ATEX and IECEx certifications and is UL listed. It operates within an extremely small footprint of only 5.8” x 3.8” x 1.9”.
“The new, compact 7500 series is easy to use, offering absolute reliability and efficiency. When fully automated it provides excellent enclosure protection for electrical equipment like motors, drives, control panels and cabinets, and gas analyzers,” said Kristen Barbour, marketing manager. “Whether you need gas or dust protection in the oil and gas, chemical, maritime, or offshore industry – the Bebco EPS 7500 can be used in process industries around the world for applications that previously required heavier and more expensive explosion-proof protection.”
The 7500 Series includes intelligent automatic monitoring and control of enclosure pressure with dilution and continuous flow functionality. The system makes automatic adjustments and provides an alarm output for reliable protection. It is designed in marine-grade chromate aluminum – making it rugged enough to withstand the harsh conditions of many process industries. The 7500 uses universal AC/DC power and is available as both a panel mount and external mount. The large touch screen enables quick and easy setup while also providing status LEDs, a bar graph for pressure, and multiple program selections.
