Hazardous locations testing and certification services for equipment installed and operated in Hazardous Locations for the North American (Canada and the USA), European (ATEX), and Global markets (IECEx), both for Full Certification and Unit Verification.
Equipment approved for Hazardous Locations is evaluated for compliance with industry published standards (IEC, EN, UL, CSA and etc.), to confirm that the equipment will not ignite a flammable gas, liquid, vapour or combustible dust.
Also known by different names such as “Hazardous Areas”, “Ex Areas”, and “Explosive Atmospheres”, Hazloc relates to areas where flammable liquids, vapours, gases or combustible dusts are likely to occur in quantities sufficient to cause a fire or explosion (IEC-IECEx, 2015).
