  • What's the Difference Between Explosion Proof & Intrinsically Safe?
    are "Explosion Proof" and "Intrinsically Safe". We will discuss these methods as they relate to gas detection equipment. Generally speaking, "explosion proof" is the more commonly used method for detector/sensor assemblies for fixed gas detection systems, where higher voltages and power requirements may
  • When the Dust Settles: A Tutorial on Explosion-Proof Vacuums(.pdf)
    explosion, and the agency is going to show up unannounced at as many of those plants as possible. Layout 1 When the Dust Settles: A Tutorial on Explosion-Proof Vacuums. Author: Paul Miller,Vice President & General Manager of Nilfisk CFM. Ever since finely ground motes of. re-issue of CPL 03-00-008
  • Hazardous Atmospheres: Explosion Proof
    In the last edition of 20/20 Insights we discussed the elements that must be present in order to produce an explosion. The three legs of the "fire triangle" (fuel, oxygen, and an ignition source) are required to support combustion. In addition, the volume ratio of fuel to air must be within
  • Selecting Explosion-Proof Motors and Variable Frequency Drive Controllers for Hazardous Environmental Applications
    Applying variable frequency power to explosion-proof motors in hazardous locations requires special considerations regarding UL 674, motor ratings and variable frequency drive characteristics to name a few. The attached paper (D-7154), originally published in Machine Design, highlights the issues
  • Preventing a Disaster: A Tutorial on Explosion Proof Vacuums (.doc)
    In February of 2008, a sugar plant near Savannah, Georgia suffered the ultimate tragedy. Fourteen employees were killed and 40 injured when finely ground motes of sugar dust ignited, setting off a violent blast. If the fatalities and a tarnished reputation weren't enough, the Occupational Safety and
  • Basic concepts for explosion protection
    substances such as methane or coal dust in. mines, or petrol and in future perhaps hydrogen in vehicles. In such cases protection and safety are. provided by equipment which is reliably explosion proof. These days, the construction of explosion proof equipment goes far beyond the field of electrical
  • Renishaw Encoders Ride a Controlled Explosion
    1995 cc, the KTM Dragster does the quarter mile in 6.7 seconds at a terminal velocity of 316 kmh. Helping tame the KTM's (barely) controlled explosion is a brace of "bomb proof" Renishaw RM22 compact, high-speed rotary magnetic encoders. Take a 360kg motorcycle with an absurd power output, a fearless
  • Improved System Performance and Dependability
    , consulting engineering companies and the internal engineering department had been unable to resolve the problem. Any solution was complicated by the explosion proof requirements of the application and heightened safety concerns due to the inherent danger of the manufacturing process. Improved System
