Flammable and Explosion-Proof
Flammable storage freezers and refrigerators meet NFPA and OSHA guidelines 45 and 70 for the refrigerated storage of flammable (volatile) materials in general laboratory work areas. There are no electrical components located in the interior of the unit and the compressor’s electrical components have been sealed in a vapour-proof enclosure for additional safety.
Explosion-proof freezers and refrigerators meet NFPA and OSHA guidelines for Hazardous Location, Class 1, Division II, Groups C & D guidelines. (Units are not intended for use in general clinical or research laboratories.) All spark-generating electrical components and connections (compressor, thermostat) are isolated and sealed in vapour-proof enclosures. Electrical wiring is hardwired for additional safety measures.
