Explosive Atmospheres – Part 1: Equipment – General
Requirements
1 Scope
This Document specifies the general requirements for construction, testing and
marking of Ex Equipment and Ex Components intended for use in explosive
atmospheres.
This Document applies to equipment intended to be used in an explosive gas
atmospheres or an explosive dust atmospheres, including the equipment specified by
the supplementary documents listed in this Document, as a general requirement when
these equipment are used in an explosive atmospheres.
The standard atmospheric conditions (relating to the explosion characteristics of the
atmosphere) under which it may be assumed that Ex Equipment can be operated are:
--- temperature -20 °C to +60 °C;
--- pressure 80 kPa to 110 kPa; and
--- air with normal oxygen content, typically 21 % v/v.
This Document and other standards supplementing this Document specify additional
test requirements for Ex Equipment operating outside the standard temperature range,
but further additional consideration and additional testing may be required for Ex
Equipment operating outside the standard atmospheric pressure range and standard
oxygen content. Such additional testing may be particularly relevant with respect to
Types of Protection that depend on quenching of a flame such as ‘flameproof
enclosures “d”’ (GB/T 3836.2) or limitation of energy, ‘intrinsic safety “i”’ (GB/T 3836.4).
NOTE 1: Although the standard atmospheric conditions above give a temperature range for the
atmosphere of -20 °C to +60 °C, the normal ambient temperature range for the Ex Equipment
is -20 °C to +40 °C, unless otherwise specified and marked. See 5.1.1. It is considered that -
20 °C to +40 °C is appropriate for many items of Ex Equipment and that to manufacture all Ex
Equipment to be suitable for a standard atmosphere upper ambient temperature of +60 °C
would place unnecessary design constraints.
NOTE 2: Requirements given in this standard result from an ignition hazard assessment made
on equipment. The ignition sources taken into account are those found associated with this type
of equipment, such as hot surfaces, electromagnetic radiation, mechanically generated sparks,
mechanical impacts resulting in thermite reactions, electrical arcing and static electric discharge
in normal industrial environments.
NOTE 3: Where an explosive gas atmosphere and a combustible dust atmosphere are, or can
be, present at the same time, the simultaneous presence of both often warrants additional
protective measures. Additional guidance on the use of Ex Equipment in hybrid mixtures
(mixture of a flammable gas or vapor with a combustible dust or combustible flyings) is given
in GB/T 3836.15.
GB/T 3836 does not specify requirements for safety, other than those directly related
to the explosion risk.
Ignition sources like adiabatic compression, shock waves, exothermic chemical
reaction, self-ignition of dust, naked flames and hot gases/liquids, are not addressed
by this standard.
NOTE 4: Although outside the scope of this standard, such equipment would typically be
subjected to a hazard analysis that identifies and lists all of the potential sources of ignition by
the equipment and the measures to be applied to prevent them becoming effective. See GB/T
3836.28.
