For several manufacturing industries safety is a prime concern. Electrical equipment’s used in atmosphere with flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dusts, ignitable fibers or filings can result in a fire or explosion. Area with presence of hazardous materials in sufficient qualities to create a fire or explosion is classified as hazardous area. In US and Canada these areas are classified in Class/division system. In Europe and other countries the zone system is used. Both of these hazardous area classification systems outline protection techniques and methods for electrical equipment’s.
Preventive and safety measure to eliminate occurrence of fire or explosion in a hazardous location is a prime concern. A regulatory body like OSHA (occupational safety and health administration) has established system that classifies locations with potentially dangerous conditions to results in an explosion or fire. Hazardous locations are places with presence of flammable liquid, gases or vapors ad can result in a fire or explosion if present in sufficient amount. The electrical equipment’s used in these areas should be developed with techniques and methods to eliminate and prevent such occurrences.
