Explosion-proof fan for hazardous locations

Industrial lighting leader, Larson Electronics LLC, released an explosion-proof fan for use in Class I, Division 1 and 2, Class 2, Division 1 and 2 locations to produce effective airflow. This circular fan redirects and circulates air through hazardous locations to keep air fresh and clean.

The EPF-30-PM-50HZ from Larson Electronics is an explosion-proof fan that features a high efficiency ¼ horsepower motor and a 30-inch propeller that produces over 8,723 CFM of air output. A non-sparking aluminum blade assembly protects the fan from accidental ignition and the motor is fully encapsulated. This circular fan’s air output is excellent for large hazardous areas.

This explosion-proof fan is single phase rated at 115/230V 50Hz and operates at 1,140 rpm. For durableness and reliability, the fan is constructed of aluminum and includes a cast aluminum junction box on the back of the unit, which houses the motor and protects electrical connections to the fan. This explosion-proof location fan can be mounted in various ways including suspended from the ceiling for more centralized flow, or wall mounted to flat surfaces.

“Hazardous locations, especially enclosed areas, often acquire particles in the air, or stale air that needs to be circulated,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “This unit provides excellent air flow, helping keep the environment clean and safer for workers.”
