Sprecher+Schuh Explosion-proof Starters and Controllers are precisely engineered to provide protection in a wide range of hazardous gas (Type 7) and hazardous dust (Type 9) environments. In addition, NEMA 4 gaskets are standard on most enclosures, providing watertight protection. Type 7 and Type 9 protection Type 7 enclosures are designed to provide protection against an internal explosion when operated in a hazardous gas environment. Type 9 enclosures protect from internal explosion in a hazardous dust environment. Both types must also prevent enclosed heat generating mechanisms from causing external surfaces to reach temperatures capable of igniting explosive gas-air mixtures in the surrounding atmosphere.
