Hazardous Area Purge/Pressurization and General Purpose Pressurized LCD Computer Workstations
The purge system within VarTech’s purge LCD computer workstations and industrial LCD PCs functions by pressurizing/purging the enclosure with clean air or inert gas (nitrogen, argon). This process allows safe operation of the unit by preventing the ingress of a flammable gases and the accumulation of ignitable dust within the enclosure in hazardous environments. Using a purge and pressurization system is standard practice for explosion protection. The continuous flow of protective gas also reduces heat, and the build-up of moisture and corrosion inside the enclosure.
