Hazardous Areas

Potentially Explosive Atmospheres exist where there is a risk of explosion due to mixtures of gas/air, vapour/air, dust/air or other flammable combinations.

In such areas there is a necessity to eliminate sources of ignition such as sparks, hot surfaces or static electricity which may ignite these mixtures.

Where electrical equipment has to be used in these areas it must be so designed and constructed as to not create sources of ignition capable of igniting these mixtures.

Before electrical equipment can be used in a potentially explosive atmosphere a representative sample has to be fully tested and certified by an independent authority such as Baseefa 2001 in Europe or UL in the U.S.A.
