Is the T200 thruster explosion proof?

(mehrshad bagheri) #1

I want to buy T200 thrusters for my ROV. But it will be exposed to a flamable gas. Is the T200 thruster explosion proof?
Thanks a lot.

Hi @mehrshad,

We do not have an explosion proof rating for the thrusters, nor do we have a facility to test that characteristic safely. For safety and liability reasons, we do not recommend using our thrusters in an explosive environment until they can be properly tested.

You need thrusters where the rotors and stators, bearings etc are immersed in oil. Anything that can cause a spark or excessive heat.

Bluerobotics thrusters do not qualify for Ex rating.

Look at sub Atlantic thrusters. They are expensive but making anything Ex rated is expensive.
