Hazardous Area Control Systems

When it comes to hazardous area control systems, Banelec is your
one-stop shop for all your hazardous electrical needs.

Due to our partnership with Bartec we hold the unique position that we can offer you the full service using only us, to provide start to finish service for your entire project; using our in-house calculations to design, manufacture, install and commission explosion proof systems. Simply tell us what you require, how you would like it to operate, the area classification, the certification the system requires, whether there are intrinsically safe circuits incorporated and the climatic environment of the intended location, and Banelec will do the rest.

Banelec can provide solutions for all your hazardous area needs; from simple distribution boards to complex Exd/Exe combination panels for use in the oil and gas industry, petrochemical production or an explosion proof enclosure for use in the food or distillery industries, we are positive that we can meet your requirements.

Certification & Classification

Systems can be built to a variety of recognised certifications, through our approved partnership with Bartec – world leader in explosion protection – allowing us to populate hazardous area enclosures suitable for ATEX, IECEx, NEC500, NEC505 and INMETRO.

Banelec are QAN certified to manufacture ATEX electrical control systems. Equipment that is ATEX certified is suitable for intended use in potentially explosive atmospheres in the European Union.

Banelec are QAR certified to manufacture IECEx electrical control systems. This is a globally recognised certification and is widely recognised across Europe, Australia, Russia, China and South Africa.

Our hazardous area control systems are suitable for use in Zone 1 and 2 on oil rigs, in mining areas and on cranes. We can provide systems to suit atmosphere groups IIA, IIB, IIC, IIIA, IIIB and IIIC and can offer temperature classes T1 to T6.
Customers specifications have even required low temperature explosion proof systems to suit temperatures as low as -50°C.

Fast and Reliable Service

Fast turnaround and top-quality products are very important in the supply of Hazardous Control Systems. You will benefit from significantly reduced leads times due to the great selection of Bartec enclosures we hold in stock.

Using in-house developed software, we will produce a detailed calculation sheet to size the required enclosure considering the heat dissipation of the components within, the allowed volumetric capacity of the enclosure and the pressure piling and heat rise.
