(1) - 18” 1.5 HP Exhaust fan rated for 4,000 CFM @ 0.5” Static Pressure
Total CFM exhausted: 4,000 CFM. (UL Listed, Explosion Proof Motor)
A precision balanced, fabricated, tube axial type duct fan with aluminum non-sparking fan blade moves air through the fan. Bearings are mounted in rubber isolators for smooth operation. The motor, drive, and bearings are isolated from the exhaust air stream. The bearings are sized with a minimum average life, per AFBMA, in excess of 200,000 hours when operating at the maximum RPM of the fan size.
Design Note: Air flow is calculated at approximately 3 air changes per minute.
Infrared Gas Detection System:
Control panel is housed in a NEMA 4X enclosure that is waterproof, chemical and weather resistant. The control box includes an audible and visual alarm to alert personnel of gas detection including gas type and concentration level. When gas is detected above the appropriate setting the exhaust fan will increase to full speed to purge gas from the room.
UL Listed infrared transmitter – Detects combustibles and CO2. Explosion Proof Construction with non-intrusive calibration and is rated for Class 1 Div. 1 Groups B, C, D.
(1) - Personnel access door(s):
Personnel access door(s) are double wall 18-Ga. galvanized steel units sized at 36" x 84” and are provided pre-hung in a heavy gauge steel frame ready for mounting to the room. The mounting hardware includes an observation window, FM approved panic type safety latch and two 6" door pulls. Room also includes a door closing device that is UL Listed and ADA compliant. Closer can be mounted on the interior or exterior as well as the left or right side of the door. Door closer is constructed of aluminum and is ANSI A156.4 compliant.
