Magnalight Broadens Range Of Explosion Proof And Intrinsically Safe Blowers

Share Article

In order to better serve a customer base ranging from aerospace companies to environmental service companies, Larson Electronics Magnalight added a wider array of explosion proof blowers and fans to a deep line of hazardous location lighting.

The EPF-E16-4450 is the latest addition to the range of explosion proof ventilation fans, with a 16 inch opening, this electric blower moves 4,450 CFM of air and is rated for hazardous locations rated Class 1 Group D and Class II for groups E,F and G. With a box fan configuration, this explosion proof electric fan is useful for portable and semi-permanent applications. The EPF-30P is an air driven blower pushing more than 2000 cubic feet per minute and is rated for Class 1 Groups A, B, C and D and Class II Groups E, F and G. The pneumatic design of the EPF-30P enables it to operate in hazardous areas that are not certified for any electric blower, including hydrogen. The EPF-30P is very portable at 28 pounds.

“When operators are looking to remove toxic air from confined spaces, they generally determine the rate at which the area needs to be cleared,” explained Rob Bresnahan, with Larson Electronics. “They will determine the volume of the space and divide that cubic foot total by the number of minutes they want to cycle stale air. For example, if they want to clear 4800 cubic foot of air every 8 minutes, they will need a explosion proof fan or blower that will exhaust at least 600 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Most states offer standard cycle rates for clearing stale air, depending on the type of air. Our explosion proof fans ship with static conductive duct which is typically grounded to the blower and prevents static discharge of dry air passing through the duct. For simplicity sake, any blower that you see on includes one piece of static conductive duct. Additional lengths of duct are shown as related items at the bottom of the product page. Each accessory static conductive duct ships with an aluminum coupler necessary to connect additional ducts together. This simplifies the process for the operator, making sure that they get what they need to the job site the first time,” Rob continued.

Larson Electronics offers a wide range of explosion proof and intrinsically safe lighting and air movers for hazardous location use. Ranging from explosion proof LED flashlights to 400 Watt metal halide tank lights for manhole access, and intrinsically safe fans and blowers, like the EPF-E16-4450 explosion proof box fan, for electric and pneumatic operation, Larson Electronics Magnalight offers most of the critical project requirements for operators in hazardous location areas.
