Explosion-proof control panels
Control panels designed by Ross SysCon are explosion-proof, more efficient, and have a small, more compact design, the company said.
Ross SysCon announced a new line of explosion-proof control panels. The operator station includes a digital readout for speed and cycle time in a new interface and more compact design.
The panels are designed to be mounted close to the mixer in a hazardous area and wired to a variable frequency drive that is installed outside the mixing room, according to Ross SysCon.
Type X or Z purge control panels are also reportedly available for users who require mixer portability without remote wiring.
