ABSTRACT

Evaluation of explosion-proof protected electrical equipment in scope of certification is extremely important considering the risk of explosion that has to be minimized in order to ensure life safety and health of workers and to prevent damaging of property and the environment, as well as free movement of goods when they meet the essential safety requirements at European level.
The purpose of this paper is to present aspects regarding the importance of thermal endurance tests performed on the electrical equipment used in potentially explosive atmosphere.
Assessment of explosion-proof protected electrical equipment is accomplished through tests carried out in accordance with the standard SR EN 60079-0 - which includes all general requirements for explosion proof protected electrical equipment. The specific requirements for each type of protection are included in the specific standards. Usually the thermal endurance test is performed on equipment before the impact test.
The paper also presents laboratory facilities for performing the thermal endurance test.

Keywords: thermal test, flameproof enclosure, increased safety, certification, explosive atmosphere
