Pressurization System for Hazardous Areas

The 5000Q Purge and Pressurization System provides a means of operating general purpose equipment in classified areas, or in environments that are highly corrosive or dusty.

The field-configurable system is designed to facilitate safe, seamless operation of general purpose equipment, mounted in certified enclosures, within Zone 2, Zone 22 hazardous areas. The system's compact size of 122x120x90mm allows quick mounting onto an existing enclosure. An integral pressure sensor facilitates automatic purging and pressurization through the digital solenoid valve. The 5000Q also allows the direct connection of PT100 RTD temperature sensors, which provide alarm contact outputs for user-configurable set points. Should the temperature exceed these set points, the digital valve will activate to automatically cool the enclosure’s interior.
