VA 40 Series for Severe Duty and Hazardous Locations

Since 1965, Scientific Systems LLC has been manufacturing explosion-proof and severe duty air conditioners and refrigeration equipment for customers in a variety of industries, including refineries, mills, and chemical plants. Here’s an in-depth look at the features of our VA 40 Series of air conditioners.

Vertical Air Conditioners for Severe Duty and Hazardous Locations

Our VA 40 Series air conditioners are engineered for severe duty industrial and offshore service. Explosion-proof models meet the requirements for use in hazardous locations under the National Electrical Code (NEC) Class I, Groups B, C, and D or Class II, Groups E, F, and G in Divisions 1 or 2.

These rugged air conditioners are built for maximum performance, reliability, and safety. All mechanical and electrical components are selected for durability and minimum maintenance needs in demanding industrial environments. Cabinets are 14-gauge galvanneal steel with 16-gauge access panels and drain pans are made from Heliarc welded stainless steel. A two-part epoxy primer and urethane topcoat help protect from corrosion. Circulating air blowers are belt driven with adjustable speed pulleys and bearings are permanently lubricated. Severe service motors are totally enclosed (TEFC) with a 1.15 service factor.

When simultaneous building pressurization (NFPA 496) is required, PBX 24 Combined Air Conditioning/Pressurization units must be specified.
