Concept – Refer to brochure for more details
PP1214 is designed in accordance with IEC 60079-2:2014 Ed 6/ EN 60079-2:2007, ensuring a pressurised and leakage compensated enclosure. This creates a non-hazardous atmosphere inside the enclosure by keeping a positive differential pressure between the pressurised enclosure and atmospheric pressure to ensure that no potentially explosive gases enter the electrical equipment.
This type of protection consists of two main stages:
Activated when the electrical machine is OFF prior to being switched ON. Clean air/inert gas is blown through the machine and monitored to ensure compliance with IEC 60079-2:2014 Ed 6/ EN 60079-2:2014.
Leakage Compensation and Pressurisation Cycle:
Once purge cycle is satisfactory the machine is considered non-hazardous and ready to be switched ON. A positive differential pressure to atmospheric has to be maintained. This is achieved by compensating for any air/inert gas leakages that the machine might have.
