Bud Industries Introduces ATEX-Certified Explosion-Proof Enclosures
Explosion proof enclosures provide safety for designs and workers
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Bud Industries, a leading manufacturer of electronic enclosures, has introduced an ATEX certified enclosure for use in settings that may have explosive atmospheres caused by gases, vapors, mists or air/dust mixtures. Application environments include chemical and pharmaceutical processors, petrochemical sites, nutrients processors, wood and metal grinding operations, and other powder/dust operations.
Made of heavy-duty die-cast aluminum and sealed with a continuous silicon rubber gasket, the ATX Series enclosures are rated for explosive atmospheres such as grain dust and conductive dust (Zones 21, 22). It is certified to ATEX II 2 G Ex e IIC Gb and ATEX II 2 D Ex tb IIIC Db. Also it is UL listed and rated at IP66 per the IEC 60529 standard.
Ten sizes are available ranging from 2.95 x 3.15 x 2.24 to 14.17 x 6.30 x 3.54 inches.
The ATEX Series enclosure is suitable for harsh environments. The aluminum body is powder coated, and captive screws in the cover are made of stainless steel. It has a service temperature range of - 50 °C to +135 °C, allowing its use in a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications.
It comes with four copper-plated ground screws in the body for ground and plate assembly. Optional accessories include aluminum internal mounting plate and external mounting brackets.
Per ATEX requirements, these enclosures will maintain their rating only if they are modified by the factory in India. If the knowledge that the un-modified box passed the requirements is sufficient, then Bud’s industry-leading 5-day modifications program can be utilized. Bud provides custom modifications at no extra cost within five to six days … 2-3 times faster than most other enclosure suppliers.
