Risk Analysis of Electrical / Non-Electrical Equipment
Assessing the selection of the newly installed and operated electrical and non-electrical equipment in areas with a risk of explosion on the basis of technical documentation. Electrical and non-electrical equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres must meet the requirements of Directive 2014/34/EU, and related standards.
Comprehensive assessment of the design and construction of machinery for an EX environment:
- assessment of the ignition risk,
- assessment of the protection method,
- verification of the suitability of the equipment with regard to the requirements of the group and category,
- determination of adequate measures.
RISK ANALYSIS OF NON-ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT
In order to prevent the ignition of a dangerous explosive atmosphere in premises classified as an environment with a risk of explosion under Directive 1999/92/EC, attention must be paid not only to the correct selection of electrical equipment, but of non-electrical equipment as well (fans, conveyors, pumps, etc.). If non-electrical equipment installed in an environment with a risk of explosion was not intended directly by the manufacturer for use in this environment, an assessment of the risk of ignition according to EN ISO 80079 - 36 and related standards must be performed.
- prepare an analysis of non-electrical equipment in an environment with a risk of explosion, where the output of the analysis is a report on the suitability of placing non-electrical equipment in an environment with a risk of explosion - zones,
- prepare a risk analysis of fire and explosion in machinery according to EN 1127 - 1, where the output of the analysis is a report on the suitability of placing machinery in an environment with a risk of explosion - zones.
RISK ANALYSIS OF ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT
The output of the analysis is an opinion on possible discrepancies between the design of the equipment and the requirements that are placed on it in a particular application in terms of its location in an environment defined as an explosive environment.
- independently map and identify the design of individual installed equipment in areas classified as potentially explosive atmospheres,
- confront the requirements placed on it in relation to the specified environment in which it is installed.
