Cast Iron Flameproof Panel

We have successfully designed, manufactured, and delivered ATEX and IECEX certified power distribution boards for a prominent end user in Abu Dhabi. These explosion-proof panels boast certification for safe use in Zone 1 and Zone 21 hazardous areas, particularly catering to the unique challenges of powering various loads on an offshore rig platform. This panel boasts an impressive IP66 ingress protection rating, ensuring robust shielding against dust and water ingress. Additionally, it is designed to operate seamlessly within a wide ambient temperature range, spanning from -20 to +50 degree Celsius.

The Ex d certified Distribution Board (DB) is meticulously crafted from Stainless Steel SS 316L, featuring Ex d certified enclosures. These enclosures are expressly designed to withstand corrosive environments, especially those with H2S gas presence. Notably, H2S gas has a pronounced reactivity with Aluminum enclosures, making Cast Iron a more resilient alternative than Aluminum in H2S-rich environments. When compared to Stainless Steel enclosures, Cast Iron is more cost-effective, providing a durable and economical solution for environments prone to H2S exposure.

This panel holds the below certification,

  • Gas: II 2G Ex db IIB+H2 T5 Gb
  • Dust: II 2D Ex tb IIIC T100 C Db IP66

Our design process was meticulous, aligning closely with the specific requirements and needs of the end user. We took into account the intricacies of the site conditions and adhered to any restrictions in place. This collaborative approach allowed us to create a robust solution tailored to the demands of the environment.

The panel is equipped with a marine-grade stainless steel mounting frame tailored for offshore conditions. This specialized frame, coated with marine paint, ensures durability and corrosion resistance in the challenging marine environment. Moreover, it includes a high-grade cable tray dedicated to efficient cable routing, further enhancing the panel’s suitability for offshore applications.

With a commitment to customer satisfaction, our prompt engineering support played a crucial role in meeting and exceeding our customer’s expectations while manufacturing this ATEX & IECEX certified panel. We are proud to have provided a high level of service, ensuring that the power distribution boards not only comply with rigorous safety standards but also perform reliably in the challenging offshore rig setting.
