Construction, test and marking of type of protection “n” electrical apparatus. Where the apparatus has to meet other environmental conditions, for example, protection against ingress of water and resistance to corrosion, additional methods of protection may be necessary. Worldwide Standards We can source any standard from anywhere in the world. To reduce the likelihood of ignition of the external explosive atmosphere, all such electrical apparatus should be adequately protected.
This standard does not apply to dusts of explosives that do not require atmospheric oxygen for combustion, or to pyrophoric substances.
Equipment protection by flameproof enclosures “d”. The application of electrical apparatus in atmospheres which may contain explosive gas as well as combustible dust, whether simultaneously or separately, requires additional protective measures. Equipment protection by intrinsic safety “i” IEC Electrical apparatus for explosive gas atmospheres. The temperature at which a type of dust ignites is a function of the properties of the dust, whether the dust is in a cloud or layer, the thickness of the layer and the geometry of the heat source.
By discharge of an accumulated electrostatic charge. By surfaces of the apparatus that are above the minimum ignition temperature of the dust concerned. Discover how to find in thousands configurations, the Combination unit for you.
When electrical apparatus is used in locations where combustible materials are present, it is important that suitable precautions are taken.
