NOW OFFERING EXPLOSION-PROOF NEMA 7 DISCONNECT AND PANELS
NEMA Type 7 disconnect switches offer flexible options for circuit protection in both fusible
and non-fusible configurations. Its small, compact footprint requires less mounting space and stainless steel hinges allow for easy internal access for wiring and maintenance.
Explosion-proof panels, disconnects, and switches are essential items for the harshest and most hazardous areas. These panels provide protection in areas where hazardous materials are developed and are suitable for worldwide applications.
In harsh environments, ignition sources can trigger the combustion of flammable gases, vapors, or dust. Electrical arcs, hot surfaces, thermite sparks, electromagnetic radiation, and more can be enough to create an explosion. Explosion-proof protection mechanisms serve to prevent these types of accidents.
In order to achieve this, explosion-proof enclosures are designed to produce a temperature that is below what is required to ignite gas or dust in the surrounding environment. They also contain the initial overpressure from internal ignition and panels should have flame paths to allow expanded gas to escape.
These explosion-proof panelboards offer a convenient way to keep your wiring in place and allow for easy lug connections. All of them come equipped with hinges, stainless steel quad lead cover bolts that are secured by Nema 4 gaskets. The compact design makes them ideal placement on switch racks as well since there’s no additional space required when taking off its cover except the front aspect.
