Pneumatrol has recently gained approvals from National Supervision and Inspection Centre for Explosion Protection and Safety of Instrumentation in China (NEPSI) for its hazardous area solenoids – Intrinsically Safe (EExia) and Flameproof (EExd).
NEPSI performs explosion protection certification in accordance with corresponding standards and issues Explosion Protection Certificate of Conformity on the government’s authorisation. NEPSI approval is widely accepted and an increasing number of companies are now adopting a policy of using NEPSI-approved products in China. With the addition of these approvals, Pneumatrol is now in a very good position for trading in China and other areas of Asia where NEPSI is recognised and required.
Over the years, Pneumatrol has developed its core product range of hazardous area solenoids (EExnA, EExm, EExme, EExd and EExia) which are available with various international approvals – ATEX, FM, CSA, UL and GOST-R.
Intrinsically safe (EExia) solenoids are available in different construction variants – terminal box, in-line connector, flying lead, plug and socket, or stainless steel terminal box. Flameproof and encapsulated (EExd) solenoids come with stainless steel terminal box construction.
