Based on the experience accumulated over time on the evaluation of equipment and installations in environments with potentially explosive atmospheres, this paper is intended to be an element of synthesis on issues related to the “in situ” assessment and solutions of solvency the deficiencies found. The assessment of these installations is very important in order to verify the implementation of measures that lead to minimizing the risk of ignition of explosive atmospheres. Evaluation of these installations is made through an on-site visit and on the basis of the technical documentation developed by the care of the user.
In first part of the paper were presented the legal aspects regarding the placing on the market and the use of equipment designed for potentially explosive atmospheres.
The paper is continuing with the presenting the technical aspects regarding the evaluation of equipment and installations operating in potentially explosive atmospheres followed by requirements for electrical equipment. The main conclusion, of the paper is that the explosion protection of the equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres may be invalidated by the incorrect selection of the equipment, incorrect installation of the product, inadequate: performance of inspection operations, maintenance or repairing of equipment.
