Explosive atmospheres are found in many sectors of industry. They require special precautions and protection systems in order to guarantee the safe use of electrical equipment. ROSE Systemtechnik’s pressure-tight encapsulated Ex d enclosures provide an optimal solution for Ex protection.
Nurullah Palamut, in charge of explosion-protected products at the ROSE Systemtechnik company, says: “Encapsulation of non-certified components and equipment for use in potentially explosive areas is a great challenge, primarily for the processing industry.” Within the European Union, the requirements for the safe use of electrical devices in potentially explosive areas are strictly regulated by the ATEX directive. In order to ensure maximum safety in operation, it is necessary to follow extensive national and international guidelines, regulations and standards. “By making use of pressure-tight encapsulation inside an enclosure in the ignition protection category Ex d, components or small devices which represent a potential source of ignition can be made suitable for use in potentially explosive areas,” Palamut goes on to explain.
Ex d enclosures for an extremely wide range of uses
ROSE Systemtechnik supplies enclosures with pressure-tight encapsulation in different sizes and versions for use in various groups of gases and temperature ranges. This allows the enclosure experts from Porta Westfalica in Germany to offer industry a wide range of solutions for the safe and secure encapsulation of electrical equipment.
Whether as an ordinary distribution box for energy, sensor signals or for complex control systems – ROSE Systemtechnik’s Ex d enclosures cover the widest range of demands in the industrial sector. The enclosures in the TBE, EJB, GUB and IJB series comply with ingress protection IP 66 in accordance with DIN EN 60529, which means that they are dust-tight and protected against penetration by water.
In particular, ROSE’s Ex d enclosures are used in the processing industry, for example by oil and gas, chemicals and pharmaceutical companies, and they are also found in measurement and instrumentation applications. In its Ex d range, the company also offers both stainless steel and aluminium enclosures. Depending on the version, customer-specific modifications or surface improvements are also available, for example viewing windows or lacquering. On request, ROSE also manufactures special enclosures and carries out complete mechanical processing and the mounting of the products.
