Explosion Protection for Humans and Machines
The topic of explosion protection originated in mining. Mixtures of methane and air that arise in coal mining and are explosive in a certain ratio were handled with controlled explosions until the second half of the century. But how does it work now?
Tankers at airports around the world have to bring their A game every day. Closely timed flight schedules and strict safety regulations determine the everyday workload for vehicles and drivers. The Brazilian firm Rucker specializes in the equipping of airplane tanker trucks, and just completed a large project for Infraero, Brazil's national airline.
Whether encased in ice, surrounded by desert or on the high seas, components at pumping stations for oil and gas production must endure the harshest conditions for decades at a time. The WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750 XTR has been specially designed for these environments.
Electricity is one possible ignition source that carries enormous risk in underground coal mining: Even a small spark can ignite an explosion. Manufacturers of machines for underground use must therefore ensure that there are no ignition risks in their systems. That is why Hazemag & EPR relies on controllers and other products from WAGO.
Our flexible explosion protection product line can be combined safely, economically and in a size tailored to your application – and it does so with a uniform system covering everything from non-Ex areas to Ex areas and in overall production. WAGO also offers exactly what planners and system integrators want for special solutions.
