  • 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
