Hazardous Areas

HAZARDOUS AREA WORKSHOP (A two day program)

  • Do you know how to classify hazardous areas? Have you ever been asked to mark hazardous areas on a plant layout drawing? Are you aware of how Zones are marked? Divisions?
  • Are you aware of material classification? Temperature classification?
  • Are you aware of national and International standards as regards area classification? About the new ATEX rules that came into effect in the year 2016?
  • Can you select the proper equipment for use in hazardous areas? In a cost effective manner, yet without compromising safety of the plant or installation?
  • Are you aware how to design an Intrinsically Safe system? How do you choose between Explosionproof or Intrinsic Safety when you select your transmitters?
  •  How does one test an explosionproof junction box?
  • Can one drill extra holes in such explosionproof Junction Boxes?
  • What should be the inspection frequency of explosion protected equipment?
  • How is Dust Ignition Proof protection different from Explosionproof protection? What are the differences in ATEX Certification and IEC Ex?
  • Do ATEX certificates expire?

Hazardous Areas are those areas of plants or facilities where there is a risk of explosion due to flammable, volatile liquids & vapors, as also explosive dusts. Thus hazardous areas are present in Oil & Gas exploration & production, oil refining, petrochemical plants, chemical plants, fertilizer plants, shipping terminals and ships that carry hydrocarbons, large agricultural processing and storage plants, power plants, natural gas production and processing facilities and many more. The design of equipment and instrumentation/electrical devices in such areas has to be suitable for use in these areas. The Hazardous Area Training workshop will cover all the information and techniques that you need to keep these areas safe to operate. You may enroll in Day 1 or Day 2 or both. If you enroll in both, you get a discount.
