Explosion Proof Actuator with Supervision

The Explosion Proof Actuator with Supervision from TLX Fire & Security is UL HazLoc, ATEX, and IECEx certified for use in fire suppression systems in hazardous locations. This top-mounted linear actuator acts as its own enclosure, meets regulatory standards for supervision, and has specifiable force output.

Hazardous locations where flammable substances may be present in the atmosphere require specially designed fire suppression systems. Many of these systems rely on a series of electric and pneumatic actuators to route discharge pressure through the system, and each connection creates a potential leak point. Because an electrical input to the actuator could cause a spark that may ignite the atmosphere around it, many of these systems also need a specialized enclosure.

The Explosion Proof Actuator with Supervision overcomes these challenges. This top-mounted linear actuator does not act as a pressure vessel on the discharge valve and connects to the system at a single point, reducing the number of potential leak points in the system. Specific design features and material grade selections allow the actuator to act as its own enclosure. The integrated supervisory feature also provides fully engaged installation detection. Additionally, the actuator’s force output can be configured during production to accommodate the operating pressure of any system up to 300 bar.
