There are many manufacturers of a variety of devices that can be found throughout the oil and gas industry. Each manufacturer is responsible for the rating and safety of their equipment.
Based on the area and application where a device is located will determine the necessary classification of that device. There are areas of install that require no special classification and other areas of install that require a device be:
- Class 1 Div 2 or
- Class 1 Div 1
The difference? Explosion proof or intrinsically safe! Do you know that you meet the requirements in your operation?
If classifications and rating of end devices is a concern for you, please contact your TECP rep or call us at 888-649-4283 to discuss.
