UL Classified – Why Should I Care?

One of my favorite celebrities is Mike Rowe, he has pushed good work ethic, hard work, and willingness to learn really can allow you to lead a fulfilling career and blue-collar work should not be looked down upon. One of his more humorous sayings is, “Safety Third”. This of course is a saying I use all the time now when I am about to do something at home that doesn’t always show that I have a mindfulness for risk assessments. Well, here at EXAIR we don’t take that kind of approach, and we know that safety is always a top priority. This is why we manufacture products that have gone through additional levels of scrutiny. Some of which involve third parties such as Underwriter Laboratories.

EXAIR HazLoc Cabinet Cooler Systems are rated for Class I Div 1 & 2, Class II Div 1 & 2, and Class III environments.

A number of our products get UL Listed or UL Recognized, the Hazardous Location Cabinet Cooler Systems though undergo further scrutiny to ensure that when properly used within a classified environment they will in fact be safe. UL Classified offers several levels. The Hazardous Location Cabinet Cooler Systems are designed to be used with purged and pressurized systems in the following locations:

Class I Div 1, Groups A, B, C, and D
Class II Div 1, Groups E, F, and G
Class III

This means that the Hazardous Location Cabinet Coolers can be used in areas with explosive gas and vapors, combustible dusts, or ignitable fibers. 

Do you have a panel that is overheating in a classified hazardous location? If so, we wish to discuss which system is designed for your hazardous or non-hazardous environment, contact an Application Engineer today.
