What is Purge?

Purge / pressurization enclosure protection systems keep general-purpose equipment safe when located in hazardous (classified) areas. BebcoEPS Purge enclosures and accessories offer the safest and most economical means of installing electrical equipment in a hazardous location.

Technology is on the move. Are your systems adapting?

  • Process control, measuring and recording equipment that was once pneumatic is now typically general purpose electronic equipment.

  • Energy efficient motors and switchgear now use electronic accessories for position, speed or process control. This makes them unsuitable for use in hazardous locations.

  • Equipment such as robotic manipulators, CNCs, batch weigh/count and filling systems, analyzers, programmable controllers and CRT work stations are more common in the industrial environment. Most cannot be economically installed in a hazardous location by using explosion proof enclosures or intrinsic safety barriers, alone.

  • Most modern electronic equipment is expensive and delicate. It requires environmental protection that cannot be provided by explosion proof enclosures or intrinsic safety barriers.
