Clamped EBMXD explosionproof disconnect switches

The only NEMA 7 clamped enclosure for hazardous areas. One of the biggest challenges with enclosures located in hazardous areas is accessibility.  To access internal components for preventative maintenance or troubleshooting, up to 70 bolts have to be loosened and then retightened, leading to extended periods of downtime and safety risks due to improperly torqued or missing bolts.

Crouse-Hinds series clamped EBMX enclosures utilize patented clamping technology to reduce downtime, increase safety and lower maintenance costs.  EBMXD Explosionproof Disconnect Switches provide motor disconnect with circuit protection for motor circuits, lighting, heating and appliances. They are ideal for harsh and hazardous motor control environments in refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants, corrosive process facilities, food and beverage facilities, marine, and mining applications.
