Formosa Plastic Group

The Formosa Plastics Group in Taiwan is a large private company, founded in 1958, that operates worldwide across various industries; most notably, petrochemicals, plastics, pharmaceuticals, textiles and many others.

Recently, this Taiwanese company needed to kit out one of its refineries with a video surveillance system. The reason for this was to monitor certain production processes that take place in a hazardous area, due to the presence of combustible substances. The client’s main priority was to have complete certainty that the installed cameras would not be an ignition source in themselves of flammable elements present in the surrounding environment.

For this delicate task, they used 16 cameras and installed them in explosion-proof housings from the MAXIMUS MHX range.

MHX housings boast a long list of international certifications – ATEX, IECEX, EAC-EX, INMETRO, UL listed for USA and Canada, KCs; that verify their compliance with the highest security standards for operation in hazardous areas.

The client stated that they appreciated how robust the housings and its accessories were, being made entirely from anti-corrosive material, which ensures unlimited durability. They also found the WASEX wiper and pump very beneficial, as they can both be operated remotely, saving on the number of in-situ interventions necessary to clean the front glass.
The MHX housings are also very adaptable and useful, as they gave the client the freedom to choose which camera to install inside, according to their monitoring needs
