The 6000 series comes with a digital pressure relief vent that can communicate with the control unit. The vent functions as a simple pressure relief device that allows gas to exit the enclosure during a purge cycle. Pressure and flow sensors located in the EPV 6000 vent measure the enclosure pressure and flow through the vent—a requirement for Zone 1 applications. This information is sent back to the 6000 series control unit, which allows for safe operation and system status monitoring via an incorporated user interface.
Purge enclosures are mounted using predrilled mounting holes, but the ease of mounting and the number of mounting holes required vary from unit to unit. For example, mounting the 2000 series purge system was a complex process, installation was cumbersome, and the housing offered less protection.
The 6000 series purge and pressurization system, on the other hand, has a stainless steel housing that allows for universal mounting of the control unit. This minimizes the number of mounting holes required and reduces the potential installation issues compared to other purge and pressurization systems on the market.
The 6000 series is the most advanced Type X purge and pressurization system on the market. Designed as a complete solution for Division/Zone 1 hazardous operations, this stainless steel unit incorporates the controller, pneumatics, electrical I/O, and programming interface. With the intuitive user interface that allows you to configure the system to meet the needs of your specific application, the 6000 series provides reliable protection in the most demanding applications.
