Hazardous area classification is a sophisticated risk assessment evaluation of a manufacturing or processing area where potentially flammable or combustible materials are being used that focuses on eliminating electrical energy as a potential ignition source. Hazardous areas are divided into three distinct classes depending on the material type that is involved in a particular process and hazardous area classification should always be considered an important aspect of facilities that involve combustible gases and vapors, volatile chemicals and/or combustible dust and fibers.
At CDG we specialize in everything from combustible gas detection systems for methane (CH4), carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2), DH4 and natural gas to lower explosive limit (LEL) detection to containment of flammable and combustible liquids and vapors. Additionally, our work includes:
