X-Type Dust Protection, Air Pressurization, unit for any enclosure depending on leakage, Maintains positive pressure, Panel Mount on enclosure wall, minimal piping, for Unclassified equipment in Class II Div 1 Zone 21 location.1XDP/PM/**

X Type Dust Protection Operation

Install regular electrical equipment in a Zone 21 or Class II Division 1 area.

Operate dust protection units as follows:

  1. Prior to operating the electrical equipment, international regulations require operators to clean the enclosure and remove accumulated dust;
  2. Then operators can start the Dust Protection unit, which prevents hazardous dust entering the enclosure, by monitoring and maintaining a minimum pressure of 0.5” water column.

X Type Dust Protection units’ provide clear status indications:

  • Green – Pressurized: And, the unit energises the remote output. The pneumatic option (/PO) goes high. The volt-free contact option (/IS) is closed. The /IS is for use with other intrinsically safe or non-incendive control equipment;
  • Red – Pressure fail:  either failure to achieve pressurization or loss of pressure. The remote output is de-energised, i.e. /PO option gives no output, and /IS contact option is open.  The low pressure alarm setting is 2.5 mbar, 1″WC.

X Type Dust Protection Features

X Type Dust Protection units are:

  • Complete with:
    • Control unit (CU): Pneumatic logic to monitor and control air-flow and pressure. It also controls the system output i.e. the pneumatic signal or volt-free contact closure.
    • Relief valve (RLV): Over-pressure protection for the enclosure.
  • Certified:
    • ATEX: IEC/EN 61241-4 Cat 2 Ex[p] IIIC T85°C,
    • cFMus: NPFA 496 Class II Div 1,
    • IECEx: IEC/EN 61241-4  Zone 1 Ex[p] IIC T85°C,
    • INMETRO: ABNT NBR IEC 60079-2,  Zone 1 Ex[p] IIC T85°C.
  • Output Options: Specifiy
    • /IS: Intrinsically Safe (I.S) output – Dry contracts for switching non-incendive or intrinsically safe circuits;
    • /PO: Pneumatic Output – “Alarm” OK is at main supply 60 psi, 4 bar;
  • Manual or Automatic:
    • Can be manually controlled, based on pressurization status;
    • Or interfaced to other automatic control systems.
  • Panel Mount: mount control unit on side or front of pressurized enclosure.
  • Corrosion Resistant: 316L stainless steel enclosure and fittings.
  • Space, Time and Money Saving:
    • No interconnecting pipework,  as control unit mounts on the enclosure;
    • Gain maximum use of internal space within enclosure.
  • Accessories: MiniPurge Interface Units (MIU),  provide isolation, e.g:
    • MIU/dA: Driven by the pneumatic signal, this external enclosure, rated Ex d IIC T5, contains a 4-pole contactor for power, and a SPCO dry contact for alarm.
    • Note:  MIU with /PO can be used for remote alarm and power disconnect. Pipe the pneumatic output from the Control Unit via a T piece to the “Alarm/Pressurized” actuator and the Power Disconnect actuator on the MIU.
