Larson Electronics LLC has released an explosion-proof fan designed for spot cooling hazardous locations.
The EPF-SM-30 explosion-proof is a Class I Division 1 and Class II Division 1 fan that is rated for use in hazardous locations where flammable or explosive vapors, gases, or dusts exist. Larson says this unit incorporates an OSHA compliant 30- inch circulation fan that delivers maximum airflow in a variety of hazardous work environments.
The hazardous location fan features a spark-proof design that is intended to minimize the possibility of causing an ignition or explosion in a hazardous environment. Although no fan is completely explosion proof, the EPF-SM-30 unit is constructed with non-sparking blades and a thermally protected, maintenance free ½ horsepower motor that greatly reduces such risk, according to the company.
The 30-inch fan is mounted to a heavy-duty galvanized four-foot steel pedestal stand that is powder-coated for corrosion resistance. The fan unit generates over 10,000 CFM of air output and spins at 1,725 RPM’s for efficient spot cooling. A powder coated steel guard provides protection over the three blades. The EPF-SM-30 is equipped with 50 feet of 16/3 chemical and abrasion resistant SOOW cord fitted with an optional explosion proof cord cap for easy connection to explosion proof outlets.
“Our new hazardous location fan is ideal for cooling Class 1 Division 1 areas where traditional air conditioning is not present,” says Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics. “It is available with an optional explosion proof cord cap to operate on 114 volts AC or 208-230 volts AC and rounds out this unit’s hazardous location rating.”
