How to Calculate the Maximum Enclosure Size for an Ex pz Purge and Pressurization System

Posted by Brent Dean on Fri, Sep 09, 2016

The maximum size of an Ex pz purge enclosure is determined by the pressure and flow that can be reached inside the enclosure. For this 'how to' post, I'll use our 5500 series purge system for the examples.

Depending on your application, there are three vent options that you can use with your system. The EPV-5500-…-01, EPV-5500-…-02, or EPV-5500-…-03. Each vent opens at a different back pressure and has different flow rates, which are listed below.

Class I Applications for Type Y and Type Z Purge Systems

Differences between the WPS and WPSA pressure switches

When selecting a Type Y or Type Z purge system, how do you know when to select the WPS (EPSK-1) or WPSA (EPSK-1A) pressure switch, and what is the difference? When selecting which pressure switch to use, first you must determine what hazardous gas group your enclosure is going to be located in (Group A, B, C, D, etc.).

The WPS pressure switch is rated for Class I Division 1 or 2 gas groups C and D. The WPSA switch is rated for Class I Division 1 or 2 gas groups A-D. For gas group C or D, you can use either switch. However, for gas group A or B, you must use the WPSA switch because it is certified for this area.
