North American Hazardous (Classified) Locations

 

안녕하세요 TIATIP 입니다.

 

미국으로 대표되는 북아메리카 위험지역에 대한 구분특성을 살펴보겠습니다.

 

Area Classification

Area classification is the division of a facility into a two or three-dimensional hazardous location, a non hazardous location and the sub-division of the hazardous location into ‘Divisions’ or ‘Zones’. In the United States of America, hazardous (classified) locations may be sub-divided as follows:

 

 

There is no Zone classification for dusts, fibres or flyings at present in the NEC.

 

For further information on the classification of hazardous (classified) locations see:

 

NEC, NFPA 70 - National Electric Code, NFPA 70.

 

NFPA 30 - Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code.

 

NFPA 497 - Recommended Practice for the Classification of Flammable Liquids, Gases or Vapours and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas.

 

NFPA 499 - Recommended Practice for the Classification of Combustible Dusts and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas.

 

ANSI/API RP500 - Recommended Practice for Classification of Locations for Electrical Installations at Petroleum Facilities Classified as Class I, Division 1 and Division 2.

 

ANSI/API RP 505 - Classification of Locations for Electrical Installations at Petroleum Facilities Classified as Class I, Zone 0, Zone 1 or Zone 2.

 

 

 

 

Apparatus selection according to Class 1

Intrinsically safe equipment listed for use in Class I, Division 1 locations for the same gas, or as permitted by Section 505.8 of the NEC, and with suitable temperature rating is permitted in Class I, Zone 0 locations.

Equipment approved for use in Class I, Division 1 or listed for use in Class I, Zone 0 locations for the same gas, or as permitted by Section 505.8 of the NEC, and with a suitable temperature rating is permitted in Class I, Zone 1 locations.

Equipment approved for use in Class I, Division 1 or Division 2 locations for the same gas, or as permitted by Section 505.8 of the NEC, and with a suitable temperature rating is permitted in Class I, Zone 2 locations.

Equipment listed as classified for use in Class I locations is not necessarily acceptable for Class II locations as it may not be dust-tight or operate at a safe temperature with a dust covering.

Apparatus selection according to the ignition temperature of the gas or vapour

The equipment must be selected so that its maximum surface temperature will not reach the ignition temperature of any gas or vapour that may be present.

 

 

 

 

Low ambient conditions require special consideration. Explosion proof or dust ignition proof equipment may not be suitable for use at temperatures lower than -25°C (-13°F) unless they are identified for low temperature service. Unless the equipment is marked otherwise, it is for use only in an ambient temperature range of -25°C (-13°F) to +40°C (+104°F).

Equipment that is approved for Class I and Class II should be marked with the maximum safe operating temperature.

For information regarding data for flammable gases and vapours, see NFPA 497 and NFPA 325.

 

Apparatus selection according to the ignition temperature of the dust

The equipment must be selected so that its maximum surface temperature will be less than the ignition temperature of the specific dust. For information regarding data for dusts, see NFPA 499.

 

Apparatus selection according to apparatus grouping

Equipment that is approved for Class I and Class II should be marked with the maximum safe operating temperature.

 

The grouping of Class I gases and vapours are classified into categories A, B, C and D.

 

 

 

The grouping of Class II dusts are classified into categories E, F, and G.
