Miami-FL, Feb 16, 2010- If you are looking for a practical guide to Hazardous Area Classification, then look no further.There is a new ebook in a flip page format (just looks like a real book), that has all the essential information that you need to know about area classification.
As you must have known by now, area classification is very important to industries and facilities that handle, store or otherwise process hazardous (flammable liquids and vapors). Also, if a facility is handling large amounts of dusts (like grain dust or coal dust), then it needs to be classified also as a hazardous area, with the code that is applicable to dusts. This classification can be sometimes very intimidating and even confusing, what with the plethora of varying standards and codes. The IEC system and the North American (NEC) systems are covered for vapors, gases, as well as dusts. Actual real life area classification drawings are provided, that really area a help, as compared to the same stale figures that are repeated in all publications.
This guide is a fast start to your area classification exercise. It is always a good safety practice to review the hazardous area classification of an industrial facility, every few years, due to the changes, modifications in equipment or new layouts that have now become a permanent development in most plants. If the area classification was done ages ago, then it is better to review it once again, to confirm that the old classification still holds, or to change it if necessary.
This guide provides a very concise overview and even provides a step by step procedure that was followed while doing an area classification. Definitely a must have book for understanding area classification.
