Explosion Proof vs Intrinsically Safe Gas Detectors


It only takes a spark to start a fire or cause an explosion, especially when flammable gases or vapours are present under the right conditions. There are industries that operate in these types of hazardous environments where the potential for explosions is extremely high, such as chemical plants, oil refineries, paint shops, cleaning facilities, tanks and loading facilities for flammable gases, liquids and solids. Gas detectors for hazardous location applications must meet strict codes and standards, including requiring the equipment to be either explosion proof or intrinsically safe. This article outlines the differences between these two methods of explosion protection.
