Potentially explosive atmospheres in the workplaces are risky environments created by flammable gases, combustible dust, mists and vapours.
All over the world, in order to use a product in a hazardous location, the manufacturers need to assure their customers and the market of the safety of their equipment and their relative compliance according to national and international regulations and directives.
What does the hazardous location test consist of?
The hazardous location testing consists to evaluates the method of protection applied by the manufacturer during the design phase and verifies that the product does not present constructive criticalities that may predict the risk of explosion if placed in potentially explosive atmospheres. The test consists in subjecting the product to a potentially explosive atmosphere, tending to create a critical fault in the protection system.
