Purge and Pressurization is a protection method used with Type 4, 4X and 12 (IP54 recommended minimum) enclosures. The enclosure is initially purged to remove any internal explosive gases or dust. Once this is accomplished, the enclosure is pressurized with a protective air or inert gas supply. This provides a positive internal enclosure pressure which keeps any external explosive gases or dust from entering the enclosure. The two methods of purge and pressurization offered are Leak Compensation and Continuous Flow.
