OFFSHORE SEA CONTAINERS FOR THE OIL & GAS INDUSTRY

The oil and gas industry is one of the most highly regulated industries in the world when it comes to safety because of its potential harm that can be done to people, the environment, and property. The offshore sector requires safe equipment that is capable of operating in a potentially hazardous environment.

Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the offshore industry in many places has generally required that equipment comply with the ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU. This is because compliance means that the equipment has been designed to a much higher standard from the point of view of integrated explosion safety.

Klinge Corp embraced the industry desire for one safety standard and offers Offshore Sea Containers that meet the requirements of the ATEX Directive. The transport refrigeration equipment is Explosion-Proof and designed for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. Companies can trust Klinge Corp’s Offshore Containers for safe operation on oil rigs, oil tankers, and other offshore locations.

Klinge Corp offers multiple models of Offshore, Explosion-Proof Refrigeration Systems that comply with the ATEX Directive:

EXPLOSION-PROOF:

Klinge Corp’s Explosion-Proof Refrigerated Containers contain ATEX certified components such as Electrical Control Box, Cable Glands, Electric Motors, Solenoid Valve, Temperature Switch, and Pressure Switch. Every component in the evaporator section is explosion proof (since this section is in direct contact with the cargo area) and all external parts are explosion-proof. The unit is also insulated with fire resistant and CFC-free polyurethane foam between the evaporator and condenser section.

Container Certified to DNV 2.7-1: Adding to the safety of the Reefer Units designed to the ATEX Directive is the containers. Klinge Corp’s special 10′ and 20′ insulated containers are certified to EN12079 and DNV 2.7-1. The Explosion-Proof Refrigeration Units are mounted to these special DNV containers.

It is challenging to avoid accidental gas leaks on oil rigs. To address this major safety concern, Klinge Corporation has designed a hazardous Zone 1 and Zone 2 explosion-proof refrigeration unit for shipping containers.
