This week our team announced that Portacool Hazardous Location evaporative coolers are ETL Certified for use in Class I, Division 2, Groups C & D hazardous locations. This certification ensures Portacool Hazardous Location evaporative coolers are suited to provide cooling comfort that aids heat stress prevention among workers in high-heat environments where combustibles are a concern. These environments include petrochemical refineries, offshore and onshore oil/gas exploration, chemical production, fuel depots, garages or hangars where fuel is present.
Portacool Hazardous Location evaproative coolers safely cool workers and lower temperatures in high-heat, combustible environments where airborne gas is potentially ignitable
Designed to cool areas where airborne gas is potentially ignitable, the Hazardous Location evaporative coolers harness the cooling power of evaporative technology to safely lower temperatures in extreme heat work environments. The switches, cords, motors and pumps are sealed in UL listed products to ensure an intrinsically safe design where airborne hazards exist. The heavy-duty pump, motor and switches are made to be nearly indestructible. Additionally, the housing is static resistant and comes in safety orange to aid hazardous location visibility.
The ETL certification comes from Intertek, a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) recognized by OSHA. Intertek has the authority to provide independent evaluation, product safety testing and ETL certification for electrically operated gas-or oil-fired products.
“We are pleased that the Hazardous Location evaporative coolers have met and exceeded Intertek’s rigorous safety requirements,” said Scott Jacobs, Director, Engineering, Portacool. “We are proud to offer these rated products to the market.”
The evaporative coolers feature KUUL Comfort™ evaporative media and Portacool Protect, which features a one year warranty on all components, lifetime warranty on housing against manufacturing defects and U.S.-based customer service.
