This document provides guidance on the application of IEC 60079-10-1 Edition 2.0: Explosive Atmospheres – Part 10-1: Classification of areas – Explosive gas atmospheres. The IEC 60079-10-1 Ed. 2.0 document incorporates significant revisions from prev

The properties of flammable mixtures as they apply to a hazardous area classification analysis are discussed. Mathematical formulas and application rules of thumb are provided to help estimate the relative density, group classification, autoignition

Cement plants commonly use pulverized coal and coke as fuel for their kilns. Unlike natural gas and oil, foreign elements within various forms or ranks of coal present many hazards and affect the electrical hazardous area classification. Clouds of co

The use of Electrical Hazardous Area Classification drawings as a basis for communicating the degree and extent of explosive hazards within industrial facilities is explored. Existing occupational health and safety regulations are referenced to deter

Explosion Safety of components, equipment, assemblies and safety devices are not only dependent on their construction but also on the way they are installed. Where huge amounts of resources are invested into the construction and certification of equi

The authors give an outline of the Italian Standards relevant to hazardous area classifications and selection of safety electrical equipment and of the present technical trends in this field. Further considerations are reported, resulting from CESI e

Experience indicates that properly applied, IEC 61508 can lead to significant economic and safety benefits for user organisations. To apply the standard correctly requires judgement, competency and planning. A number of projects have had significant

Article 505 of the 1996 National Electrical Code contains provisions for a hazardous area classification system commonly known as the Zone 0 concept. This change in the NEC will allow two separate and independent approaches for using electrical equip

In the nuclear industry, mechanical engineers spend a significant portion of their time designing equipment such as manipulators, bogies, mechanical grippers, and so on. Some customized designs could be considered as standard mechanical equipment in

Area classification is an essential activity to prevent the ignition of an explosive gas atmosphere by apparatus as its physical condition and performance tend to deteriorate due to age, environmental attack and constant use. In particular, National

The 2nd edition of the lightning risk assessment standard (IEC 62305-2) considers structures which may endanger the environment. In these cases, the loss is not limited to the structure itself; which is the case for “usual” structures. In Edition 1 o

The use of Non-Dispersive InfraRed (NDIR) detection technology as a basis for a Hazardous Area Classification is described. Methods for identifying fugitive emission leaks using NDIR technology, quantifying leak data and applying the results to docum

The use of nondispersive infrared (NDIR) detection technology as a basis for a hazardous area classification is described. Methods for identifying fugitive emission leaks using NDIR technology, quantifying leak data, and applying the results to docum

Infrasound signals released as a result of volcanic eruptions contain information regarding the intensity of the eruptions, presence of ash emissions, and certain characteristics of the volcano itself. Knowledge of the eruption intensity can provide

There is a wide range of legislation on electrical apparatus in potentially flammable atmospheres. This article highlights factors which may help designers to fulfil legal requirements without unnecessary cost

The IEC 61850 standard originally was developed for the substation automation. During the last years it was adapted for the integration of distributed energy resources into communication networks. There are however specific requirements in this new f

This contribution deals with the IEC 61000-4-20, the international standard for emission and immunity testing in transversal electromagnetic (TEM) waveguides. The applicability of the IEC standard's Annex C for transient testing with broadband signal

This paper presents an overview of the methods employed by oilfield service companies to address the use of electronic equipment within hazardous areas on offshore oil rigs. Techniques which accomplish primary operational safety objectives are discus

Since IEC 61850 became the widely used standard for substation communication with a lot of implementations. Testing is an important issue. The standard in its current version covers some possibilities and approaches for testing in general and for mea

Transverse electromagnetic (TEM) waveguides are predominantly used for emission and immunity tests. General requirements for TEM waveguides are given by the IEC 61000-4-20. Annex C of the IEC 61000-4-20 specifies immunity tests based on high-altitude

Using the "dynamic factor method" (DFM), the response features of elastoplastic systems on the explosion load of power and explosive materials are calculated and analyzed, utilizing the extreme value optimization method and the numerical integration

Transverse electromagnetic (TEM) waveguides, especially gigahertz TEM (GTEM) cells, are predominantly used for emission and immunity tests. General requirements for such a GTEM cell are given by the IEC 61000-4-20. Annex C of the IEC 61000-4-20 speci

The study was carried out for agricultural area in Poland for the years 2003-2007. The aim of the project was to examine the impact of soil-vegetation parameters on backscatter calculated from ENVISAT.ASAR under various polarizations and incidence an

Issues affecting performance of cables in hazardous environments are discussed, with emphasis on performance in fire. Examples of assessment methods are given, together with some illustrations of fire survival cables undergoing tests
