The company’s PFR-571 ZII-II is categorized as Group II, Category 3, meaning equipment is intended for use in areas in which explosive atmospheres caused by gases, vapors, mists or air/dust mixtures are unlikely to occur or, if they do occur, are likely to do so only infrequently and for a short period only.
The PFR-571 ZII-II is also designed for safe operation in ATEX Zone 2 classified areas which are places in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air of dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapor or mist is not likely to occur in normal operation but, if it does occur, will persist for a short period only.
Adding to the safety of the ATEX Directive compliant refrigeration unit is the EN12079 and DNV 2.7.1 certified offshore container to which the PFR-571 ZII-II refrigeration unit is mounted.
Offshore Containers are used primarily in the oil and gas industry because of their ability to withstand the harsh environment and handling of the offshore industry. Due to the dangerous nature of the oil industry, these containers are subject to many more regulations and must undergo a strict certification process to ensure the safety of personnel working on the oil rigs, oil tankers, as well as the environment.
Klinge says the ATEX compliant PFR-571 ZII-II and EN12079 and DNV 2.7.1 certified containers make this refrigerated container the ideal solution for the global offshore oil and gas industry.
