Hazardous Area Enclosure Options

When it comes to improving safety in your hazardous areas, selecting the right electrical control system is essential. With such a wide variety of control panels on the market, the trick is choosing one that will best meet your needs. That’s where Banelec can help. We can specify and supply control system products, from large distribution boards to small Exe, Exd or combination terminal boxes, that help you work smarter and safer.

Exd enclosures

Exd enclosures are flameproof and explosion-protected, meaning they contain any risk in the environment in which your control system is installed. We use our own in-house developed software to calculate the size of the enclosure and identify the components you need to control your system. This includes analysing the allowable volumetric capacity of your enclosure, the heat rise and dissipation, and the pressure piling to ensure your enclosure meets your needs.

Available workspace is always a challenge. Our expert engineers have vast experience in providing Exd options for limited spaces to help enhance the performance and safety of your production equipment and processes. We can design and manufacture innovative hazardous area control systems which incorporate mid-level component mounting plates, allowing us to install more components and functions within the panel while remaining within safety guidelines.

Exe Junction Boxes

Exe enclosures are impact resistant as well as being flame and explosion-proof, meaning they provide an enhanced level of safety compared with Exd enclosures. As such, they are suitable for a broader range of applications. We stock a wide range of Exe enclosures from BARTEC, one of the world’s leading manufacturers, which means we can build and certify your solution in-house for a speedy turnaround, delivery and installation. We can create bespoke Exe enclosures with terminals or push buttons for lighting. If space is limited, we can supply and install traditional Exd components, such as miniature circuit breakers, in an Exe enclosure.

Innovative Exd/Exe combination systems

If you’re looking for a control system solution that saves space without sacrificing flexibility, performance or safety, then an Exd/Exe combination will give you the best of both worlds. In these systems, terminals can be installed within an Exe enclosure, creating ease of termination and less restrictive options for glanding. They are also easier to install, maintain and repair. We used this approach to develop an innovative Exd/Exe combination system for a global energy giant which saw us develop a double redundancy safety solution using an emergency operating system installed on an oil rig’s blowout prevention deck.
