Exd Explosion-Proof Housing for Hazardous Area Applications
TRIMEC-EUROPE have introduced a new Exd explosion proof housing made from stainless steel which can be specified for its range of RT and EB field mounted flow instruments when used in challenging applications, such as offshore oil production. The explosion-proof housing is made from stainless steel and meets industry standards for ingress protection to IP65 and NEMA 4X for enclosing indoor and outdoor electronic instruments.
Operator interface is achieved via four large momentary action push buttons externally mounted, which enable non-invasive contact with the instrument using magnets. Also, users can view and operate the desired program without the need to remove the cover. The housing is rugged, yet compact and available as either a surface mount, pipe mount or rack mount options.
The Exd housing is certified ISSeP-ATEX flame-proof, IIGD EEx d IIC for factory mutual explosion-proof, class1, Div1, groups A,B,C and D, and SAA flameproof, Ex d IIC. It can be specified for a wide range of Trimec flow instruments including battery totalisers, automatic batch controllers and the rate totaliser with 4-20mA, alarm and scaleable outputs, dual flow inputs and linearisation.
