Q: Can I buy an explosion proof compressor?
A: Yes. The real question is whether the the compressor is going to "breathe" or intake the ambient explosive atmosphere. Compressors are a machined set of lungs and cannot intake combustible, noxious, or volatile gases that could injure, harm, or kill a human if inhaled. While we manufacture explosion proof compressor systems, the air intake must be remoted to a clean air environment to ensure worker safety if the compressor is to be placed in a volatile atmosphere.
