The Explosion Proof Contractor Grade, Saddle Vent Kit for Hazardous locations combines all the required confined space equipment in one place. This kit comes complete with everything you need and all intrinsically safe.
Note: The standard configuration for this kit has the fan connect directly to the canister which has 6' of integrated ducting which connects to the 90 degree elbow to the saddle vent to the 15 or 25' of additional ducting. If you would like to have the inverse ie: the longer ducting stays in the integrated canister, please specify that as a note at time of order.
We can also further customize so give us a call with any special requirements.
The Air Systems 8 inch ducting with cuffs provides user the ability to greatly extend the reach of the ventilation systems and ensure their source air is free of polutants, contamination, or hazardous conditions. Manufactured from vinyl polyester, the ducting is internally constructed of steel reinforced wire hopps. A 6 inch long attachment cuff (8 3/8 inch in diameter) with adjustable belt straps on both ends allows for quick and easy attachment to blowers or couplers. The Explosion Proof series contains a built in grounding wire that runs the length of the ducting and cand can be connected to the rest of the ventilation system to ensure a 100% intrinsically safe system.
The 90 Degree Elbow is designed to connect securely and easily to the Air System's Saddle Vent, reducing the chance that your ducting becomes pinched and blocked around the opening. Manufactured with built-in grounding lugs, the Explosion Proof 90 Degree Elbow, when used in conjunction with all of Air System's intrinsically safe products ensures that no risk of explosion exists during normal confined space work or during rescue operations.
The Contractor's series of ventilation products is the latest addition to Air Systems' ventilation product group. Known for product quality and performance, Air Systems offers a rugged portable polyethylene fan line designed to accommodate a variety of applications as well as demanding job site conditions at an economical price. This kit includes both the AC Axial Fan (Model No. CVF-8EXP) and the polyethylene canister with 15' or 25' of 8 inch diameter ducting. The Explosion Proof version also includes a continuous wire connecting inside the ducting and grounding lugs on the canister and fan to ensure a 100% intrinsically safe system.
The original Saddle Vent was constructed of standard polyethylene which carries the potential of static electricity build-up on its surface which can become a source of ignition for fire and explosions.
Air Systems developed an improved Saddle Vent to safely remove potential static electricity charges from the ventilation system. The use of conductive polyethylene to construct the Saddle Vent and conductive ventilation duct now provides the safest possible confined space ventilation procedure available. The fully Conductive Saddle Vent removes static electricity from the entire ventilation system when installed properly.
