Hazardous Location Enclosure Coolers from Vortec protect electrical and electronic enclosures, keeping them cool and clean in the dirtiest, hottest environments. With their sleek, modern design, Vortec’s coolers are a low cost alternative to expensive, high maintenance air conditioners. HazLoc Vortex A/C Coolers are designed specifically for purged electrical enclosures in Class I Div 2, Class II Div 2, Groups F&G and Class III locations while the ATEX Vortex A/C Coolers are designed for purged electrical enclosures in ATEX Zones 2 and 22 and Temperature Class T4 areas. They are ideal for petroleum refineries, gasoline storage or dispensing areas, utility gas plants and other hazardous locations where heat and environmental concerns put control panels at risk.
Excessive heat or contamination can cause digital displays to misread, controls to drift and breakers to trip below rated loads, resulting in machine or line shutdowns and lost productivity. Vortec’s HazLoc Vortex A/C and ATEX Vortex A/C coolers convert compressed air to a low pressure cold air source to keep enclosure components cool, clean, dry and protected.
Available in 4 different cooling capacities, both the HazLoc Vortex A/C and ATEX Vortex A/C coolers feature flexible top, side, or front mount installation that only takes 5 minutes to install. Both coolers feature noise reduction of 78% when compared to other vortex enclosure coolers, and reduce compressed air use through an integral mechanical thermostat.
