Hazardous location enclosure coolers


ProtEX is the newest addition to Vortec’s line of hazardous location enclosure coolers. The newly ATEX-certified ProtEX Vortex A/C models 8115, 8125, 8135 and 8170 are certified to the latest EN ISO 80079-36:2016 standard. These models offer 900, 1,500, 2,500 or 5,000 BTU/hour cooling capacity to suit the differing needs of each enclosure and facility. ProtEX Vortex A/C units operate in environments up to 175° F and are designed to cool enclosures quietly rather than adding to industrial noise.
