EXPLOSION-PROOF APPLICATIONS



Out of Stock Add To Cart

Shupper-Brickle Equipment supplies explosion-proof hoists and cranes for hazardous environments. We recommend ACCO, Electrolift, and Yale brands, and we can assist you to find the correct equipment for your application.

Explosion-proof hoists are designed to operate in the hazardous locations as defined by the National Electric Code section 500, including Class 1, where flammable gases are or could be present and Class 2, where combustible particles are or could be present in the atmosphere.

Built to prevent ignition of hazardous materials by containing any explosions that might occur inside the hoist, the equipment’s components are made to withstand the pressure of an internal explosion. These enclosed parts are called explosion proof. Meanwhile, electrical components designed to operate on extremely low voltage in hazardous locations are referred to as "intrinsically safe" and usually include limit switches and controls. Spark resistant options in bronze, copper-plating, and stainless steel are available when the risk of a spark could cause an explosion.
