The number of industry sectors (both domestic and international) requiring the use of purge and pressurization systems in hazardous environments continues to grow both vertically and horizontally. This growth can be attributed to some key factors:

  • The continuing focus on safety in hazardous working locations.
  • The high-cost of designing, certifying, and installing electrical equipment as either explosion proof and/or intrinsically safe.
  • The increased use of automation requiring electrical/electronic controls in hazardous work environments. For example: Robotics, programmable controllers, computers, printers, calibrators, analyzers, and video displays.
  • The recent boom in the petro-chemical industry brought on by the lower cost of petroleum-based raw material.
