ADALET RECEIVES IECEx CERTIFICATION ON XCEX SERIES FLAMEPROOF ENCLOSURES
Cleveland, OH - January 2012 - As a global supplier of hazardous location enclosures, Adalet strives to maintain the most recent certifications and standard on our hazardous location enclosures and systems. In keeping with our focus on global approvals, Adalet has recently received IECEx certification on our XCEX series of bolted flange flameproof enclosures and auxiliary devices. The XCEX series of flameproof enclosures include 81 standard sizes all approved to gas group IIB with an IP66 rating. The Adalet enclosures, available with window kits, conduit / cable entries, and auxiliary devices, are approved to IEC 60079-0, IEC 60079-1, IEC 61241-0, and IEC 61241-1 international standards. This new IECEx approval allows more exposure to worldwide markets and strengthens Adalet's position as a globally certified manufacture of hazardous location enclosures and systems. In addition to the IECEx certification, Adalet also manufactures enclosures with international certification rated to the ATEX Directive as well as other country specific approvals such as GOST-R (Russia) and KOSHA (Korea).
The objective of the IECEx System is to facilitate international trade in equipment and services for use in explosive atmospheres
- Reduced testing and certification costs to manufacturer
- Reduced time to market
- International confidence in the product assessment process
- One international database listing
- Maintaining international confidence in equipment and services covered by IECEx Certification
As described on www.iecex.com, the IECEx system is an international conformity system where a mark of conformity will be granted by approved IECEx certifiers (ExCBs) located in IECEx participating countries for equipment that is covered by an IECEx Certificate of Conformity and hence has been tested and manufactured under systems that are under ongoing surveillance by ExCBs. It will help governments, safety regulators, and industry to have greater assurance that the equipment being operated or supplied for use in areas where flammable gases and vapors and combustible dusts (termed explosive atmospheres) are present, meet the world's most respected and vigorous safety standards. The IECEx mark is recognized by all participating countries and ensures that Adalet flameproof enclosures can be supplied without the need for additional testing.
