An explosive atmosphere is defined as a mixture of dangerous substances with air, under atmospheric conditions, in the form of gases, vapours, mist or dust in which, after ignition has occurred, an explosion could take place.
Many industries may have activities that produce explosive or potentially explosive atmospheres, such as:
• Chemical plants
• Paint shops
• Waste recycling plants
These hazardous areas are classified according to the degree of risk of an explosion taking place and, in every company, the plant manager is responsible for evaluating the risks present at the site, and the implementation of the appropriate equipment in each zone identified.
