Sample text

It does not seek to address the possibility of explosions which occur in catastrophic failure conditions which, by and large, are not easily predictable. It must be remembered, however, that a procedure to deal with catastrophe is necessary even though that procedure does not form part of the area classification process and the requirements which that process engenders. There are basically three situations which can predictably occur in any operation of in which flammable materials are involved.

They identify the equipment certified, together with its certification code Introduction 13 Electrical Equipment Certification Service EECS I BASEEFA I II & I sira Certification Service Aepistration Number 01 1 scs PhysicaVSCH Technische Bundesanstalt PTB Fig. 4 Typical certification logos (described later) and the manufacturer. An example of a typical certificate is given in Fig. 5. What should be noted is the limit of the certificate. It only specifies the equipment as being in accordance with the detailed construction requirements in the specified Standard and does not address installation which will vary depending upon the country of installation.
