VarTech System's Hazardous Area Class 1 Division 2 Certified LCD Monitors
Press release date: April 2, 2014
VarTech’s ToughStation Hazardous Area fully enclosed and panel mount LCD video monitors are applicable for use with rig floor computers withstanding the harsh environments presented by oil drill rigs in situations such as hydraulic fracturing or fracking, directional drilling, hydrocarbon well logging or mud logging, catalytic cracking and crude oil / petroleum refining. They are also designed for the extreme conditions of underground mining including but not limited to distribution mining, tunnel boring and production mining. These non-purged LCDs ensure explosion proof protection in underground mining environments where coal dust and other combustible materials are present in an enclosed atmosphere. They are built to resist rugged conditions and shock and vibration inherent in strip mining, surface mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop removal applications. These units can also serve in both chemical engineering and processing industry areas involving vapor recovery, corrosive chemical solvents, plastic or polymer production and fixed bed reactors. They are certified for Class 1 Division 2 areas where gas, ignitable vapors or flammable dust may be present. The non-incendive construction makes them appropriate for use in food processing applications where grain dust is present and corrosive cleaning elements and wash-down computing is necessary.
