Explosion-proof electrical equipment mainly refers to electrical equipment used in hazardous and flammable places. Common explosion-proof electrical equipment includes explosion proof vfd motors, explosion-proof transformers, explosion-proof switch equipment, and explosion-proof lighting fixtures. The term "explosion-proof" does not indicate that the equipment can withstand external explosions, but only internal explosions and does not allow sparks or hot air to escape from the casing, thereby causing explosions in the surrounding environment. The presence of many flammable/combustible vapors or dust conditions will increase the risk of safety accidents. Without proper explosion-proof electrical equipment, sparks and other substances emitted by electronic products may cause explosions. Explosion-proof electrical equipment is mainly used in places containing flammable and explosive gases and dust such as coal, petroleum, and chemical plants. Electrical equipment used in explosive hazardous environments should be able to prevent sparks, arcs, or hazardous temperatures from becoming sources of ignition for explosive mixtures at the installation site.
Explosion-proof electrical equipment can avoid the occurrence of safety accidents, so it has been widely used in related equipment or electrical circuits. Because the chemical industry needs to frequently contact high-risk media and chemical raw materials, once flameproof electrical equipment fails and sparks are generated, it is very easy to cause explosion accidents. Therefore, explosion-proof electrical equipment has been widely used in flammable and explosive hazardous locations. At the same time, in order to ensure that explosion-proof electrical equipment can work safely and reliably, it is also necessary to ensure that all components and fasteners are in good working condition, improve the performance of the explosion-proof electrical equipment itself, and make its explosion-proof function effective.
There are certain problems with the installation and selection of explosion-proof electrical equipment. Before setting up explosion-proof electrical equipment, whether the model selection is reasonable will directly affect its application effect. However, the investigation of the use of explosion-proof electrical equipment has found that before installing explosion-proof electrical equipment, most factories did not make targeted selection of its model, thus burying safety hazards.
Our ccs motor company suggests that the maintenance work of explosion-proof electrical equipment during the operation stage should also be highly valued, in order to prevent failures during operation, and to make the explosion-proof function ineffective, causing the occurrence of safety accidents. Whether it is for use or maintenance, one should clearly understand the operating performance and working mechanism of the explosion-proof electrical equipment. Only in this way can problems be avoided and a solid foundation be laid for the future development of explosion-proof electrical equipment.
