Purge Units

Product Description

Best Purging Systems Type Y and Z Purge Units protect electrical equipment in Class I hazardous locations. When connected to a supply of protective gas these models will supply, regulate and monitor the protective gas supply to a protected enclosure.

Type Z applications reduce the hazardous location rating inside the enclosure from Division 2/ Zone 2 to non-hazardous. This allows non-rated equipment to operate in Division 2/ Zone 2 areas.

Type Y applications reduce the hazardous location rating inside the enclosure from Division 1/ Zone 1 to Division 2 / Zone 2. This allows Division 2/ Zone 2 equipment to operate in Division 1/ Zone 1 areas.

Spark Arresting Purge Vents (Models PV-2, PV-3, or PV-4) installed on the protected enclosure are required for safe operation.

Best Purging Systems Type Y and Z Purge Units are UL listed and designed to meet or exceed NEC – NFPA 70, NFPA 496, EN 50016 and IEC 60079-02 requirements.
