Oil & Gas Technology

Date: June 4, 2014
Time: 12 PM EDT (9 AM PDT / 6:30 PM CEST)
Duration: 1 hour


Fires and explosions represent the major safety concerns of the Oil & Gas industry. No other aspect of industrial safety receives more attention in the form of codes, standards, technical papers, and engineering design. This presentation will help attendees refresh their knowledge of Ex fundamentals and zone classifications. In particular, the discussion will help engineers who have been using the division system better meet the challenges of zone classifications. Attendees will learn how to work with the new Ex methodology and contend with regulations of the EU and the ATEX Directive. They will also discover resources and tools for designing to IEC, EN, and other world standards. In the end, this presentation will explain why the zone system provides users and their customers savings benefits that the division system does not.
