EXAIR’s ATEX Cabinet Cooler System Is Made for Explosive Environments

July 2, 2024
The 316 stainless steel ATEX cabinet cooler system from EXAIR is designed to provide reliable and cost-effective cooling for safeguarding electronics in hazardous, explosive environments.

Designed to safeguard delicate electronics in ATEX classified areas, these systems have undergone rigorous testing to attain UL approval, CE compliance and meet the stringent standards for deployment and classified purged and pressurized electrical enclosures within zones 2 and 22.

Key features of the cabinet coolers include:

  • Cooling capabilities of up to 5,600 BTUs per hour; they shield electronic enclosures from overheating and areas with explosive atmospheres, whether indoors or outdoors
  • Easy installation via standard electrical knockout while maintaining NEMA 4/4X integrity
  • Auto-drain filter separator prevents water, dirt or contaminants from entering the enclosure
  • Options for thermostat controls to minimize compressed air usage and cold air distribution kits for balanced airflow.

The cabinet coolers function by generating and circulating cold air within enclosures to prevent overheating, mitigate high temperature malfunctions and avert costly shutdowns. Installation is simple as they can be mounted via a standard electrical knockout while preserving the NEMA 4/4X integrity of enclosures situated in hazardous environments. These systems come with an auto-drain filter separator to ensure that no water, dirt or contaminants from the compressed air system infiltrate the electrical enclosure. Users can opt for thermostat controls to optimize compressed air utilization, and cold air distribution kits ensure a balanced distribution of cold air throughout the enclosure.

Beyond the ATEX range, the company offers a comprehensive selection of cabinet coolers spanning NEMA 12, 4, 4X and hazardous locations. All EXAIR cabinet cooler systems are compliant with CE standards, UL listed and engineered for longevity with no moving parts susceptible to wear-and-tear. These systems find applications and cooling control panels, motor control centers, CCTV cameras, laser housings and other electronic devices.
