The new Bebco EPS® 7500 Series Ex pzc / Type Z sets new standards for global purge solutions.
Pepperl+Fuchs, a world leader in process automation, has introduced an advanced Bebco EPS® purge and pressurisation system, designed for Class I or II/Div. 2 and Zone 2/22 locations. This innovative and compact manual or automatic system delivers all the features needed for reliable hazardous location protection within a small, streamlined solution.
The 7500 series Ex pzc/Type Z purge and pressurisation system can be fully automatic or manual and purges a common enclosure of hazardous gas or dust to maintain positive pressure. It effectively reduces the classification within the protected enclosure to a non-hazardous area. The 7500 carries ATEX and IECEx certifications and is UL listed. It operates within an extremely small footprint of only 5.8» x 3.8» x 1.9».
“The new, compact 7500 series is easy to use, offering absolute reliability and efficiency. When fully automated it provides excellent enclosure protection for electrical equipment like motors, drives, control panels and cabinets, and gas analysers,”
said Kristen Barbour, Marketing Manager.
“Whether you need gas or dust protection in the oil and gas, chemical, maritime, or offshore industry – the Bebco EPS 7500 can be used in process industries around the world for applications that previously required heavier and more expensive explosion-proof protection.”
The 7500 Series includes intelligent automatic monitoring and control of enclosure pressure with dilution and continuous flow functionality. The system makes automatic adjustments and provides an alarm output for reliable protection. It is designed in marine-grade chromate aluminium – making it rugged enough to withstand the harsh conditions of many process industries.
The 7500 uses universal AC/DC power and is available as both a panel mount and external mount. The large touch screen enables quick and easy setup while also providing status LEDs, a bar graph for pressure, and multiple program selections.
Automation is our world. A Perfect application solution is our goal.
A willingness to take entrepreneurial risks, a pioneering spirit, and a firm belief in their own inventive powers – these were the assets that Walter Pepperl and Ludwig Fuchs started out with when they opened their Mannheim radio repair shop in 1945.
Their invention of the proximity switch a few years later proved their strength. It was also the starting point in a successful history defined by close customer relationships as well as innovative automation technologies and procedures.
Then as now, our focus is directed squarely on the individual requirements of each customer. Whether as a pioneer in electrical explosion protection, or as a leading innovator of highly efficient sensors – the close communication with our customers is what allowed us to become the leader in automation technology. Our main objective is combining state-of-the-art technologies and comprehensive services to optimise our customers´ processes and applications.
