Benefits of Portacool Hazardous Location Series

If you are looking to cool a location where there’s a risk from combustible materials, our hazardous location series is a great choice. You’ll experience the following benefits:

ETL Certified — For use in Class I, Division 2, Group C & D. Sealed electrical components are intrinsically safe.

One-Pass Cooling — Evaporative coolers can cool air as much as 30 degrees Fahrenheit with one pass. This allows them to create a cool zone, even when you can’t catch or trap the cooled air.

Efficient Operation — Most of the energy for evaporative cooling comes from hot air, so you get cool air using about as much energy as a fan.

Easily Transportable — Although safety requires that a licensed electrician hardwire these, they can still be wheeled about to provide cooling to different areas of your worksite. You can easily lift them into a truck to transport your evaporative cooler to your next job site.
