MAGNET-SCHULTZ OF AMERICA INTRODUCES
Hazardous-Location and Explosion Proof Electro-Hydraulic
Solenoid Coils with Worldwide Approvals
June 28, 2016 – Westmont, IL -- Magnet-Schultz of America, Inc. (MSA), a leading innovator and manufacturer of solenoids, electromagnetic devices, and value added assemblies, introduces a family of electro-hydraulic coils which are certified for worldwide use in hazardous locations (gas and dust atmospheres) and in environments that demand explosion proof capabilities.
Called HAZ-LOC®, this family of coils has the unique capability of being able to mount on multiple manufacturer’s hydraulic tubes (with diameters of either 13mm, 16mm, 19mm or 22mm).
Each coil incorporates a junction box for electrical connection, and is certified for use in either 40° C or 80° C maximum ambient temperatures.
Every HAZ-LOC® coil provides compliance with all of the following governing standards:
United States of America
- GAS: Class I (Division 1) Group A, B, C, D, T4
- DUST: Class II & III (Division 1) Group E, F, G, T4
- GAS: Class 1 (Zone 1) AEx d IIC Gb T4
- DUST: Class II (Zone 21) AEx tb IIIC Db T4
- GAS: Ex d IIC T4 Gb T4
- DUST: Ex tb IIIC Db T4 (Zone 21)
- GAS: II 2 G | Ex d IIC T4 Gb (Zone 1)
- DUST: II 2 D | Ex tb IIIC T135 Db (Zone 21)
International (excluding above locations)
- GAS: Ex d IIC T4 GB
- DUST: Ex Tb IIIC T135 Db
T4 in all above standards indicates the maximum surface temperature limitation of 135° C.
