Whatever is your business, and whatever are your working conditions, it is always vital to consider health, safety, and risks of property damage, before installing air motors.
Even though the risks of using pneumatic motors are lower than when using electric motors, particularly in relation to overheating or explosion, some precautions must still be taken.
The SAT BOX (Safety Air Treatment Box) is a safety device aimed at protecting people and material against damages and accidents.
Placed upstream from your pneumatic actuators (motors, piston or any portable pneumatic tools) the SAT BOX provides numerous important safety features:
All these safety features are energized by air pressure, without any other energy source required.
Indeed, the SAT Box includes a high capacity FRL system, which is required to treat the air as well as allowing the air pressure to be precisely controlled.
In view of the features that it offers, the SAT Box can be compared to a “pneumatic circuit breaker” that significantly reduces the risks of injury or property damage in the event of an emergency stop or an accidental start. ATEX certification is also available upon request.
