What is a Purge Panel?
A purge panel is an electrical protection device that helps reduce the danger of fire and explosion caused by high-pressure gases and vapours in buildings. It’s used when you want to install certain electrical devices which contain flammable, corrosive or explosive gases inside hazardous areas like boilers and tanks.
Some Feature of Purge Panel
- The Purge Panels are made of Polyethylene and Stainless Steel. The Purge Panels are available in various sizes, shapes, materials and thicknesses.
- The Purge Panels are constructed using different components to suit the requirements of the customers. The Purging System is manufactured using state of the art technology by using best quality raw material and advanced equipment.
- The Purging System is designed in such a way that it can be installed easily without any hassles. It also ensures safety for personnel working in hazardous areas containing flammable gases, conductive dust, corrosive gases & combination of these.
- The Purging System is used for purging enclosures in hazardous areas containing flammable gases, conductive dust, corrosive gases & combination of these. In purge panels or purged enclosures, positive pressure is maintained inside the enclosure to prevent entry of outside gases in the enclosure. This ensures that the internal devices are protected from hostile & hazardous gases/vapours in atmosphere.
What is a PLC Panels?
PLCs are a type of programmable logic controller (PLC) that is used to automate customized control processes. PLCs can be connected to other equipment and systems, such as HMI (Human Machine Interface) panels, process control computers and data acquisition systems.
The PLC performs a variety of functions, including acquiring and storing data from sensors connected to the programmable logic controller, performing calculations on that data and providing outputs in response to inputs from other equipment. The PLC itself will communicate with other devices through a communication bus or network.
Facts about Purged Panels Vs PLC Panels
Purged panels are the older type of panels that have been used in construction for many years, while PLC panels are more recent and are more efficient than their purged counterparts. They are also considered to be a safer option. Purged panels can be used in applications where there is a need to replace old wiring or where there is a high risk of electrocution due to the presence of live wires.
On the other hand, PLC panels can be used in many places where there is no danger of electrocution because they do not have any live wires present within them. The main difference between these two types of panels is that purged panels need to be manually replaced whenever they become damaged, while PLC panels can be easily repaired by using a small screwdriver to open up the panel case and then replacing the faulty components within it.
The main difference between PLC and purged panels is that PLC panels don’t require any purging process after they are made. The PLC panels are made from poly carbonate (PC) which is an extremely durable plastic material with excellent impact resistance and high strength. It is also a good insulator and has superior thermal stability. These features make it one of the best materials available on the market today.
The main advantage of using PLC panels is that they don’t need any toxic chemicals during their manufacturing process unlike purged panels which require them to be purged before being made into products like computers or phones etc. This makes them eco-friendly as well as safer for human consumption because there will be no harmful chemicals involved while making these products
To conclude, it is clear that purge panels and PLC panels are two of the most used protection systems of electrical plants against over currents. While purged panels can be useful for some purposes, particularly in smaller substations, PLC panels are recommended for use in large power plants and substations because of their ability to detect faults faster. Most of the time, due to their relatively thin construction, PUR panels are slightly lighter than PLC panels.
