E2S Warning Signals have published a new ‘Guide for Hazardous areas’ which is available as a free download from their website.

Protection concepts are listed along with applicable zone, class or division and typical equipment protection level in an easy to read format.

  • Gas and dust groups and typical substances according to the main certification systems
  • Maximum surface temperature of equipment, temperature classifications and ignition temperature limits of gas / dust
  • Apparatus groups and typical ignition temperatures for common gases, vapors and dust
  • Type of protection and basic concepts of protection listed by zone according to ATEX & IECEx and class and division according to US and Canadian standards
