Standards, Classification and Marking of Hazardous Weighing Equipment
27 September 2013
Equipment and products operating in hazardous areas are required to meet stringent criteria. They must be 'protected' to avoid the possibility of them becoming a source of ignition. Weighing systems are often an integral part of a process within the hazardous area and therefore must have suitable protection.
Many industries face major challenges when defining a zone as hazardous and this can have major implications for your business operation should you fail to meet the required legislative standards.
METTLER TOLEDO's simple and easy-to-read poster provides a comprehensive introduction to hazardous-area classifications, types of protection and how this information is reflected in the labeling of electrical equipment for hazardous areas.
