Oil Refinery, Middle East


One of Europe’s most prestigious panel builders came to indEx looking for a control station enclosure and framework.


  • The enclosures were cost and time sensitive.
  • Flameproof enclosures (Ex d) were considered far too expensive, over engineered, cumbersome, heavy and unsuitable.
  • The enclosure needed to house Ex de pushbuttons and lights in a zone 2 area.


  • indEx were able to build to the exact customer specification – including manufacturing the framework in 316L stainless steel and painting for areas with heavy crude and hydrogen sulphide release potential.
  • indEx personal have a wealth of experience and knowledge in providing bespoke solutions using Ex e (increased safety) junction enclosures and panels.
  • For zone 2 indEx proposed the use of Ex de switches and lights.
