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.
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.
