Electrical apparatus for explosive gas atmospheres - Part 10: Classification  of hazardous areas

Executive summary

Requirements for the classification of hazardous areas to permit the proper selection and installation of apparatus for use in such hazardous areas.

Abstract

This part of EN 60079 is concerned with the classification of hazardous areas where flammable gas or vapour risks may arise, in order to permit the proper selection and installation of apparatus for use in such hazardous areas.

This European Standard is intended to be applied where there may be a risk of ignition due to the presence of flammable gas or vapour, mixed with air under normal atmospheric conditions, but it does not apply to:

a) mines susceptible to firedamp;

b) the processing and manufacture of explosives;

c) areas where a risk may arise due to the presence of ignitable dusts or fibres;

d) catastrophic failures which are beyond the concept of abnormality dealt with in this standard;

e) rooms used for medical purposes;

f) areas where the presence of flammable mist may give rise to an unpredictable risk and which require special consideration;

g) domestic premises.
