locations which are deemed hazardous due to the presence of combustible or electrical conducting dusts. class ii locations normally require that enclosures and fittings be dust tight. class iii – fibers and flyings environments locations which are deemed hazardous due to the presence of easily ignitable fibers or flyings, but in
this level of risk is represented by classifying the hazardous area as zone 0, zone 1 or zone 2 (for gas, vapour and mist atmospheres) or zone 21 or zone 22 for dust atmospheres. in this article we will look at what defines zone 0, zone 1 and zone 2 hazardous area classifications and the considerations for specifying lighting into each area.
rule 18-004 defines a class i area as an area in which flammable gases and vapours are or may be present in the air in quantities sufficient to produce an explosive gas atmosphere. this classification is further divided (rule 18-006) into zones based on the frequency to which this

hazardous areas are classified into zones based on an assessment of the frequency of occurrence and duration of an explosive gas atmosphere. the definitions found in iec 60079-10-1 are: › explosive atmosphere: mixture with air, under atmospheric conditions, flammable substances in the form of
hazardous areas are classified into zones based on an assessment of the frequency of the occurrence and duration of an explosive gas atmosphere, as follows: zone 0: an area in which an explosive gas atmosphere is present continuously or for long periods;
or explosion might occur. those areas where the possibility or risk of fire or explosion might occur due to an explosive atmosphere and/or mixture is often called a hazardous (or classified) location/area. currently there are two systems used to classify these hazardous areas; the class/division system and the zone system. the class/division system is used

hazardous location/explosion protection requirements – certification based on area classification and explosion protection methods for either division or zone installations. a hazardous locations certified product must comply with both ordinary location and hazardous locations requirements in accordance with u.s. ul and american national standards institute (ansi) and can standards.
nfpa 70 nec establishes area classifications based on classes, divisions and groups that when combined delineate the hazardous conditions of a specific area. this classification method provides a description of the hazardous material that may be present, and the probability that it is present, so that the appropriate equipment may be selected, and safe installation practices followed.
area classification of all the major components of the wastewater collection and treatment facilities by dividing them in three sections as under: section 18 of the canadian electrical code (cec) specifies the rules for classifying hazardous locations. cec classifies hazardous locations into three classes based on the nature of hazards as follows:
classified areas and electrical safety measures. any physical location in an industrial facility harboring the potential of explosion due to the presence of flammable process matter suspended in the air is called a hazardous or classified location. in this context, the label “ hazardous ” specifically refers to the hazard of explosion, not
hazardous area classifications as per the zone system are organised according to its zone which can be sub-categorized into gas/vapors/mists and dust. for gas/dust atmospheres, the system is further divided into groups and subgroups. for gases, vapors and mists, there are a total of 3 zones:
white paper: hazardous area classification in a nutshell and overview of arista industrial computers . abstract . this technical white paper addresses primary specifications and classification of hazardous area classifications/hazardous locations safety issues, industry regulations and security standards across the globe.
what is an area electrical classification? risk based methodology used to quantify material characteristics with potential electrical ignition sources resulting in the objective of reducing a fire/explosion potential. areas found to be applicable are considered “hazardous (classified) locations”.
hazardous areas. temperature classifications are given to hazardous area temperature class ratings (also known as t-ratings or t-class) and are applied to hazardous area zones and electrical equipment – t class ratings are utilised for all hazardous areas and explosion protection methods.
electrical data / hazardous area classifications electrical data electrical terminology volt —(e); unit of electric pressure or electromotive force. it is the potential that will produce a current of 1 ampere through a resistance of 1 ohm. ampere (i); unit of electrical current (coulombs per second)
electrical hazardous area classifications for cement plants. abstract: cement plants commonly use pulverized coal and coke as fuel for their kilns. unlike natural gas and oil, foreign elements within various forms or ranks of coal present many hazards and affect the electrical hazardous area classification. clouds of coal dust and coke dust can
hazardous area classification (hac) is the process of classification of areas where flammable gas or vapor or mist hazards may arise and may then be used as a basis to . . general framework. . . support the proper selection and installation of equipment for use in an hazardous area.
classification of hazardous area class i typical environment • oil refinery • terminal • bottling plant class ii typical environment • coal mine • grain silo • hay storage areas where flammable gaes/vapours may be present areas where combustible dust be may present class iii areas where combustible dust be may present typical environment • textile mill • paper mill • wook factory

areas with exposed wastewater are considered a class i, division 1 hazard whereas areas conveying, metering, or pumping in enclosed pipes are class i, division 2
where the classification gives rise to small unclassified areas between classified areas, the classification should be extended to the full area. for zone 21 and zone 22 areas located outside buildings (open air), the zones can be altered due to weather effects such as wind, rain, etc.
a hazardous area classification drawing (also known as an area classification drawing) outlines the classifications of areas where flammable liquids, gasses or vapors are handed, processed or stored. it is created based on input from the process flow diagrams, piping & instrumentation diagrams and the equipment location plan.the intent of the drawing is to communicate to engineers, operators
