L-Tron works closely with manufacturers to provide our customer base with explosion proof and intrinsically safe products for explosion protection. We work with the oil & gas industry, chemical and pharmaceutical industries and construction of special tankers.
A hazardous location is defined by examining the following three criteria:
- The possible presence of an explosive atmosphere, such as flammable gases, vapors, or liquids, combustible dusts or ignitable fibers & flyings.
- The likelihood that the explosive atmosphere is present when equipment is operating.
- The ignition-related properties of the explosive atmosphere that is present.
The approach to classifying hazardous locations varies according to the country into which the equipment is being installed. The codes used by the United States (National Electrical Code), Canada (Canadian Electrical Code), Europe (CENELEC EN60079-10) and throughout the world (IEC 60079-10) vary.
L-Tron’s products prevent explosions in locations where there are explosive gas/air mixtures or dusts. With the highest degree of reliability and quality, our products ensure the safety of people, as well as protecting nearby technology and the environment.
