A complete range for the air extraction system for oil & gas industry

Oil, gas, and petrochemicals are extraction environments that often rhyme with XP (Explosion Resistant).
The corrosive nature of their location, such as offshore platforms and storage ports among others, and the nature of the materials being processed, make them potentially explosive environments.
The marine and offshore environment require particular attention to ventilation systems. They should not contain ferrous parts to avoid premature corrosion. On-site, they will extract various pollutants and will be installed in different areas of an offshore platform.
One such sensitive area that requires reliable extraction is the gas turbine enclosure where the main objective is to reduce the risk of hazardous gas build-up by ensuring effective extraction.
The XP (explosive atmospheres) variant is very often recommended in areas where hazardous gases are present. These areas should be specified, and the service manuals and the XP certificate from the system manufacturer should be included in the equipment service manuals .

SEAT Ventilation fans & blowers are recommended for environments where hazardous gases are present, and where effective extraction is essential to reduce the risk of explosion.

The XP standard is classified by zones. The zoning, i.e. the level, is based on: the type of flammable material (gas, vapor, or dust), the rate of presence of the explosive material, and the time of use (continuous, intermittent, occasional), and the temperature.

The HVAC system for oil and gas industry is a real challenge as hydrocarbons are an important source of carbon and toxic gases.

This sector of activity with very strict legislation which represents nearly 2/3 of the world's energy, oil and gas companies must improve their ventilation systems.

The risk of gases and volatile liquids is asphyxiation and fire or explosion, as most liquid and gaseous products are flammable, explosive, toxic. As a result, the atmosphere of the petroleum industry is classified as explosive (XP) and the ventilation systems must absolutely comply with the XP standard.

An atmosphere is called explosive (XP) when the conditions are met to produce its explosion: mixing with the air of a flammable substance in proportions such that any source of ignition (sparks, electric arcs ... ) will inevitably produce its explosion.

XP fans are always used when combustible or explosive gases or dusts occur in a process or the transport medium and/ or the surrounding environment of the fan has these properties.

Safe, controlled and comfortable environments for people to work and live in.

SEAT Ventilation offers a complete range of fans in XP version, Zone 2, category 3G according to directive 2014/34/EU, made of antistatic polypropylene.

With a very low noise level and high energy savings, our XP fans are specially designed for areas with a potential risk of explosion.

Many applications require XP fans. Plant operators are often unaware of the risk of explosion and use standard fans.
