Hazardous
Locations
Standards

Certifications open the door to the hazardous locations marketplace, and standards are the key. Our hazardous locations consultants can ensure that your products are fully compliant with all required standards and codes.

Our consultants are fully conversant with the latest changes in national and international standards for all types of hazardous locations equipment, including:

   Intrinsically safe
Explosion-proof and flameproof
Dust-ignition proof
Purged and pressurized
Encapsulated
Increased safety
Non-sparking and non-incendive
Powder/sand filled
Oil filled / oil immersion
Dust-tight


Our experience is too extensive to fully describe. Below is a partial list of of the hazardous locations standards we use on a regular basis. We also handle the national adaptations of the IEC standards referenced below.
