Overpressure system with gas detection for hazardous areas (ATEX/IECEx)
The explosion protection at the "overpressure system 2.0" is realized by operating a non-explosion-protected equipment in a protected enclosure. This housing is protected by a durable pressure with air or an inert gas prior to penetrate the enclosure or cabinet by possibly explosive atmosphere. In the new approach developed by Quintex, it is not flushed, but released for operation by a gas detector of the cabinet. This ensures that no explosive gas/air mixture is present. This saves time, programming knownledge and expensive pressurized air and accelerate the operation of the non ex devices.
In operation and after releasing, a positive pressure in the mbar range is maintained within the cabinet. On the input side of pressurized air (gas) you can uses solenoid valves (open / closed) as well as proportional valves to cover the air leakage of the cabinet.With our control unit for digital valves, the pressure air is supplied through a hysteresis in the range of 6mbar(hPa) (valve open) and 10mbar(hPa) (valve closed). This can be omitted expensive proportional valves and simultaneously thus leakage changes (e.g: Increasing the leakage losses due to aging processes), are automatically compensated.

Pressurized HMI in Ex Zone 1 at an automotive supplier
Quintex GmbH was able to win an order with a leading manufacturer and OEM for sealing systems in the automobile industry together with its customer, Göhler Anlagentechnik. For toluol supply facilities in zone 1, the customer required a system with a zone 2 panel by Siemens. In addition, the costumer required that the touch function of the twelve inch widescreen TFT display be completely retained even under harsh industrial conditions. Different solutions
Local Control Functions at a Fuel Loading Area
Ex certified Local control functions you find in many chemical and petrochemical Applications. A typical Application is a switch for Illumination. A big handle is therefore required to make sure that the people can switch on and off the Equipment easily also with gloves. The requirement is often very different. The showed application is a 2-pole main switch for illumination at a Tank Truck Fuel Loading Area operated by “NIS”
Electrical equipment in waste water treatment plants
The screen represents the first cleaning stage in a waste water treatment plant after the inlet. With this mechanical pre-treatment, the waste water is passed through a screen or sieve. Coarse dirt of all kinds, such as stones, branches, leaves, damp toilet paper, sanitary towels and a lot of other debris, get caught there and are removed from the further clarification cycle. Basically, different types of screens are used. These range from
Modified design page for local control stations
We modified our graphical design page for Ex e localcontrol stations. Now it is possible for all 'touch-devices' (e.g. ipad, tablets etc.) to use the drag and drop function on our homepage. For desktop computers nothing changed. The difference is only in deleting a function after selection. With mouse oriented devices you use a double click and with touch oriented devices you use a 'long-tap' (min 0.8 sec) to delete
