Why Explosion Proof?

Commercial-Industrial operations at the manufacturing and development level often involve compounds that under the right conditions present a volatile or explosive potential. Any operations involving the use, creation, or possible presence of volatile materials like petrochemicals, organic or metallic dust and combustible vapors present the potential for fires and explosions. Additionally, industrial-commercial operations that involve performance of duties in enclosed spaces like storage tanks, grain silos, ship based transport tanks and paint spray booths present the danger of explosion or fire from the accumulation of volatile chemical vapors and fine particulates. These are but a few examples of what are known as Hazardous Locations and they represent some of the most dangerous working conditions in the world today.

Larson Electronics.com provides hazardous location lighting solutions in the form of U.L. and Atex approved> explosion proof lighting equipment that meets OSHA hazardous location lighting safety standards. Larson Electronics explosion proof lights and intrinsically safe lights provide the protection industrial-commercial operations need to comply with federal and local regulations for safety in the hazardous location workplace.

Explosion Proof - Intrinsically Safe Lighting

 
Intrinsically Safe Flashlight - Rechargeable LED Flashlight with Spot and Flood Beams

Explosion proof lighting is at its core designed to prevent what is called inadvertent ignition. This is achieved by either preventing ignited gases or materials from escaping the light during a fault or ignition within the light which could ignite the surrounding volatile atmosphere, or by prohibiting the potential for the creation of sparks and heat. These two facets of hazardous location lighting design relate directly to the differences between lighting designated as explosion proof or intrinsically safe. Generally speaking, explosion proof lighting prevents the escape of heated gases, and intrinsically safe lighting is not capable of producing sparks or enough heat to cause ignition.

Explosion Proof-Hazardous Location Lighting Certification/Basics

Information

OSHA-United States Department of Labor
The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration is the federal agency tasked with issuing and enforcing standards for workplace safety and health.
OSHA defines
explosion proof lights as “An apparatus enclosed in a case that is capable of withstanding an explosion of a specified gas or vapor that may occur within it and of preventing the ignition of a specified gas or vapor surrounding the enclosure by sparks, flashes, or explosion of the gas or vapor within, and that operates at such an external temperature that a surrounding flammable atmosphere will not be ignited thereby.


National Electrical Code
The National Electrical Code or NEC is the the U.S. standard upon which the safety of electrical installations and equipment is based. The NEC is part of the National Fire Protection Associations series of National Fire Codes publications detailing fire codes and electrical safety regulations.
OSHA safety requirements are based on categorization of equipment and locations according to NEC definitions in NFPA 497 and NFPA 70E.
Hazardous locations, as defined in the NEC, are locations where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to the presence of flammable gases, vapors or flammable liquids, combustible dusts, or ignitable fibers or flyings.

What Makes a Light Explosion Proof?

The term “Explosion Proof” refers to equipment that can contain and or temporarily isolate possible sources of ignition within itself, preventing these ignition sources from escaping or exiting the equipment at temperatures which may ignite possibly volatile atmospheres. This is achieved through a variety of means including encasing lamps and electrical contacts within rugged sealed housings that can contain an internal explosion and/or creating channels through the use of finely threaded joints and pathways within housings that force escaping ignited gases to travel along lengthy pasaages before exiting the housing, in turn lowering the temperature of these gases to a safe level before exiting the unit and gaining exposure to the environment outside of the lamp.


Explosion proof lighting equipment is also designed to resist creating sparks through possible impacts from dropping or contact with other metallic objects. This is accomplished through the use of high grade aluminum that resists sparking, impact resistant plastic and nylon composites, and abrasion/chemical resistant cords and wiring. Additionally, switches, contacts, internal wiring and other potential sources of electrical energy are heavily shielded and sealed against the possibility of contact or damage that may cause sparks or overheating should the unit become compromised or damaged.

 

Design alone is not enough for equipment to earn an explosion proof rating and certification. Before equipment can be certified for use in a hazardous location it must be tested and approved by one of several independent laboratories authorized by OSHA such as Underwriters Laboratories. These laboratories test the equipment and apply certification based upon its suitability for use in a specific category of hazardous location as specified by the National Electrical Code. This certification rates the light for use in specific categories only, meaning a light is only safe as long as it is not used in a location outside of its approved rating.  All of Larson Electronics Explosion Proof Lights are U.L. certified and carry the required identification and literature verifying their suitability for use in hazardous locations.

Combustible Dusts: Explosive Potential

According to OSHA, 30,000 U.S. facilities are at risk of fires and explosions caused by the presence of combustible dusts. OSHA also notes that between 1980 and 2005 118 workers were killed and another 718 injured in incidents involving a combustible dust explosion. In one of the most deadly recorded incidents in thirty years, a 2008 combustible dust explosion at a Georgia sugar refinery killed 14 people and injured more than 40. On December 7, 2009 three men were severely burned when grain dust at the Simmons Feed Mill in Fairland, Oklahoma ignited and caused a dust explosion while they were using cutting torches inside of a grain silo. These incidents occur all too often in industrial operations all over the United Stated although fortunately many have resulted in only minor injuries and damages. What they underscore however is the continuing need for improvements in all aspects of hazardous workplace safety because although combustible dust conflagrations on a large scale are relatively few, the potential cost in lives and damages makes allowing any incident to occur unacceptable. [...]

Hazardous Locations: Know Your Explosion Proof Classifications

Hazardous locations are defined by the NEC or “National Electrical Code” as areas "where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dust, or ignitable fibers or flyings." ....As can now be seen, hazardous locations can be fitted within a specific set of criteria which then makes it possible to correctly select the proper electrical equipment for use within these locations. A paint spray booth for example would have flammable/explosive gases and vapors present as a part of normal operations, making it a Class 1 Division 1 area, while the nature of the materials would fit within Groups C and D. Thus a paint spray booth light rated Class 1 Division 1, Groups C and D would be required. A grain silo where combustible dusts are present during normal operations would be a Class 2 Division 1, Group G area.[...]

Explosion Proof and Intrinsically Safe: Different Methods, Same Goals

Two of the biggest factors in the development and implementation of explosion proof lighting technology are economics and regulations. The standards and requirements regulating the design of explosion proof lighting as outlined by OSHA, the International Electrical Code and others dictate a high level of design strength and ignition resistance, and these in turn increase the costs associated with such equipment.The first thing to consider is the fact that the terms explosion proof and intrinsically safe do not represent the same thing. Explosion proof lighting is designed for use in hazardous locations and must be certified for such use by accredited institutions such as Underwriters Laboratories for use in these environments. Additionally, not only must equipment be certified as explosion proof, but it must also be properly rated according to the type of environment it is to be used in. [...]

The Future of Explosion Proof Lighting

While these changes are necessary and will do a great deal to reduce energy consumption and improve the efficiency with which electricity is used, they will also significantly affect how explosion proof lighting is manufactured and its cost. Already a shift in explosion proof lighting technology is taking place from traditional incandescent lamps to higher efficiency forms of illumination. LEDs, HID, and fluorescent lamps are being quickly embraced by the explosion proof lighting industry due not so much to their energy efficient natures, but rather their greater durability, dependability, and cooler operating temperatures. However, the higher cost of these types of fixtures as compared to traditional incandescent lamps has led to the incandescent bulb remaining a popular choice in industry. This cheaper appearance however is misleading. [...]
