Introduction

The Technical Tables section of the website is designed to provide owners and operators with general guidance on criteria for selecting equipment for hazardous area operation, thereby ensuring that it is fit for its purpose. However, it is important to note that it is the responsibility of operators to ensure that their systems are operated in accordance with the local, national or international codes of practice and standards by which they are bound.

The section provides some information on the ATEX equipment directive , terminology, regulations and certification related to explosion protected equipment. Dron & Dickson has a close association with the major manufacturers of equipment for hazardous areas and will be pleased to offer specialist advice on any matter relating to selection, installation and maintenance of electrical equipment.
