ATEX EC Fan with IP68 Ingress Protection
Introducing our latest in product innovation, our ATEX EC compact axial fan. Axair Refrigeration holds innovation and customers at their core. With this is mind Axair Refrigeration listened to what both the market and their customers needed and after extensive market research Axair Refrigeration can announce that they are one of the few companies that can provide ATEX EC IP68 compact axial fans to their customers. Axair Refrigeration holds UK stock and can offer next day delivery.
Managing Director Grant Edwards commented
“Following the launch of Axair Refrigeration, our focus has been on delivering products that the market wants and needs. The Launch of our ATEX IP68 compact axial fan fills a gap in the market that is required in many potentially hazardous applications”.
Currently, the compact fan is available in the industry standard size of 120 x 120 x 38 in 3 speeds: High (3000 RPM), medium (2500 RPM) and Low (1700 RPM). This market innovation has an ATEX Rating of ll 3G ex llC Gc and is in keeping with the European ATEX directive known as ATEX 2014-34 EU. The directive is in place to ensure that certain levels of safety are established and that manufacturing standard are met. This will protect people against the risk of potential explosions due to explosive substances, especially hydrocarbon refrigerants. In this case, if a fan were to cause a spark it could possibly react with hazardous substances in the air causing an explosion with the potential to cause harm. ATEX fans are also known as spark proof fans, their inability to spark prevents the possibility of an explosion.
The fan is not only ATEX approved but EC. This means that as well as being safe it is energy efficient. EC is becoming increasingly popular in the air movement market and has become essential to the commercial refrigeration market. EC achieves its efficiency by combining AC and DC voltages. EC (electronically commutated) technology can save up to 80% on its AC counterpart. This is crucial for the ever stricter rules and regulations for energy efficiency in the commercial refrigeration market. This is just one example where our new fan is a crucial piece of equipment. Other applications include electronic cooling, lamp cooling, small heat exchangers, small condensers and evaporators, just to name a few. It is also IP68. This means that the compact axial fan is 100% dustproof and 100% watertight.
