Larson Electronics Releases an Explosion Proof Portable Air Chiller with a 32 Gallon Water Tank
Press release date: May 8, 2014
Leading manufacturer and distributor of industrial lighting Larson Electronics announces the release of an explosion proof portable air chiller with a 32 gallon water tank. The EPF-AC-24 is a Class 1 Division 2 portable, evaporative cooling system that is rated for use in hazardous area work environments.
The EPF-AC-24 from Larson Electronics is a hazardous location cooler that combines a fan and dry mist technology to cool Class 1 Division 2 work areas that do not have access to traditional air conditioning. This portable cooling unit has a 32 gallon tank and has two separate water filters to cool the work environment 20-30 degrees for up to 10 hours. This portable cooling system will automatically shut off once the water reservoir is empty, so operators do not need to worry about burning the pumps up. Using dry mist technology, this unit ensures that the work environment stays dry while lowering the ambient temperature. This unit comes with a 24” spark proof aluminum blade and enclosed wire and motors. The cooler is easily transferred with 6” wheels and is powered by a 20’ cord terminated in an explosion proof plug.
Measuring 66 inches tall by 30 inches wide and 46 inches deep, this lightweight evaporative cooling unit can reach an evaporation zone of 5’-10’. With a fan unit running at 26 miles per hour, this portable misting unit can chill down any industrial or commercial space in need of a cool down. One tank can easily last an entire work shift so there is no need for messy hose connections running throughout the work space. It is designed to be self-maintaining, therefore operators will not need to interrupt their work to replace pads or clean the nozzles. The EPF-AC-24 hazardous location evaporative cooling unit is easy to move around with its quick connect crane pick-eye and its powder coated steel tubing frame ensures minimal rusting and longevity.
“Our new hazardous location coolers can cool the work area by 15-20° while providing air movement over 50 feet away from the unit,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “The unit is mounted to a portable cart that is equipped with 6” wheels for moving the unit from one area of the work space to another. It is also equipped with a pick-eye so it can be relocated by a crane.”
