Electrical equipment can cause explosions in certain atmospheres. Equipment used in areas where explosive concentrations of dusts or vapors may exist must be equipped with special wiring and other electrical components for safety purposes. Hazardous locations such as these might exist in aircraft hangars, gasoline stations, extraction facilities, paint-finishing locations, or grain bins.
There are three different situations that could exist to classify an area as a Class I, Division 1 location:
- Ignitable concentrations of flammable gases or vapors may exist under normal operating conditions.
- Ignitable concentrations of such gases or vapors may exist frequently because of repair or maintenance operations or because of leakage.
- Breakdown or faulty operation of equipment or processes might release ignitable concentrations of flammable gases or vapors, and might also cause simultaneous failure of electric equipment.
It is very important to provide safe, reliable and effective fire suppression to protect persons and property in these environments. Cease Fire might just have the solution you need.
