APS’ Explosion proof ACBs and compressors work great for protecting more than just people. When you have Control Rooms or Enclosures where explosive and flammable dusts and gases are present in hazardous quantities, it is that these spaces are ventilated, maintain a required temperature and remain free as possible of dust and other particles in the air that could cause explosions or fires and allow equipment to overheat and seriously hinder their performance. APS designs its “explosion proof” compressors specifically for these types of environments so that manufacturers can build relatively compact, quiet and long-lived chillers, air conditioners and refrigerators for use in these tough conditions, while ACBs will help ventilate, cool, purge, keep clean or pressurize these rooms without any filter media to maintain.

If you have any questions or comments, please let us know. If you have a specific application in mind, please complete our Compressor Project Inquiry Form or our Air Cleaning Blower Project Inquiry Form. We look forward to responding to you as quickly as possible.
