"As a large oil exploration company, we have oil drilling rigs located throughout the world. In many cases our rigs are located in areas that our very hot and humid. It is important to us to provide relief for our workers from these extreme hot temperatures.
This process of providing relief is complicated by the fact that gas vapors are flammable. As a result, the equipment required must comply with safety regulations for both Class 1, Divisions 1 & 2 and Class II, Divisions 1 & 2 environments.
Big Fogg built the required Class 1 Division 1 Misting Fan units for our rigs used in the Gulf of Mexico. Each misting fan incorporates a powerful 30” fan head, a stainless steel body coupled with an enclosed high pressure pump which operates at 1000 psi.
The fact that the Big Fogg Explosion Proof Misting Fan takes a much smaller footprint than competitors and is more durable and “portable” was a major consideration when I made my final choice.
Big Fogg High Pressure Explosion Proof Misting Fans are very effective in cooling down our workers on those rigs. Not only is the performance of their Explosion Proof Misting Fans excellent, but their customer service is outstanding. I would recommend Big Fogg Explosion Proof Misting Fans for any facility or Company that needs outdoor cooling in a Class 1 Division 1 environment."
