Safety equipment: Larson Electronics releases a 24-in. explosion-proof ventilation fan for areas where flammable gases, vapors or finely pulverized dusts may exist. The EPF-HPSM-24-480V high-pressure explosion proof ventilation fan features three spark resistant cast aluminum blades that move stale air at a rate of up to 6,860 cubic feet per minute. The frame is made of heavy-duty 14-gauge steel that is completely arc welded with tubular supports. This unit is rated for use in Class 1 Group D and Class II Groups F and G hazardous areas providing superior ventilation and air movement throughout a work space.

This three phase explosion-proof ventilation fan has a one horsepower fully enclosed motor that spins the propeller at a rate of 1,750 rotations per minute. This unit is a hard-wired explosion proof ventilation fan that should be installed according to state and local electrical and mechanical codes. It is designed to be wall mounted, features eight pre-drilled holes to simplify the process, and operates on 230 to 480 volts AC electrical current. This industrial exhaust fan is ideal for use in clean rooms, extraction rooms, oil refineries, grain mills, and chemical storage areas for fume, smoke, and dust removal.

“A hazardous location ventilation fan is used to move stale air in areas where flammable gases, vapors, and dusts potentially exist,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics. “This unit is designed to be permanently mounted in such areas to improve air quality and safety.”

Larson Electronics carries an extensive line of LED light towers, portable power distributions, explosion proof lights for hazardous locations, portable work lights and industrial grade LED area lights.
