High-Performance ATEX IECEx Portable Tank Ventilation Fans feature a single input and multiple output design. These cost-effective, single-inlet, direct-driven centrifugal fans deliver exceptional performance, providing a fresh air supply and creating a safe working environment. Ideal for gas freeing of oil and chemical tanks, these fully portable fans are versatile and can be used on various vessels.

Ensuring a safe working environment and facilitating the gas freeing of tanks, especially during man-entry for tank cleaning or storage holds cleaning, is crucial. Our units, independently certified as ATEX and/or IECEx, offer the necessary provisions for introducing fresh air. Each fan allows separate connections to the main tank through flexible ducting, and the adjustable diffusers come with built-in manual shut-off dampers to suit local conditions.

IIC Fans – Explosion-Proof Extractor Fans for Battery Rooms:

Essential Ex-Proof Exhaust Fans certified for extracting hydrogen emitted by batteries in battery rooms of marine vessels, used for battery backup or uninterruptible power systems (UPS). Battery rooms are present in various settings, including Marine Vessels, Telecommunications, Power Plants, Substations, and diesel-electric and nuclear submarines.

During battery charging, hydrogen is released, and in battery rooms with a high level of charging, the room can become highly explosive as hydrogen mixes with oxygen. Ventilation is critical to maintain hydrogen concentrations below the lower explosive limit.

As per Hazardous Area Classifications, hydrogen is classified as IIC Gas, necessitating IIC certified Fans for ventilation in Battery Rooms.

FSE SAFE provides solutions with products certified to ATEX, IECEx, or both, covering both mechanical and electrical aspects. Our range of fans is ideal for such applications, certified for the presence of hydrogen in the gas mix, and independently certified by EV N.B. SIRA.

Key Features:

  • 3rd Party Certification: Differentiates us from competitors and ensures reliability and dependability for end-users.
  • Independently certified IIC hydrogen fan manufacturer.
  • Available as centrifugal cased units, plug fans, or axial.
