& navigate the Hazloc landscape with confidence...
Operating in hazardous locations requires utmost caution and adherence to rigorous safety standards. With the potential risks associated with combustible dust, flammable gases, and explosive atmospheres, it is crucial for businesses to ensure the safety of their equipment and products. This is where Hazloc certification plays a pivotal role. At Eutex International, we specialize in providing comprehensive Hazloc services that enable businesses to navigate the challenging landscape of hazardous locations and achieve global market access with confidence.
At its core, Hazloc testing and certification involve evaluating electrical and non-electrical equipment, such as sensors, controllers, and motors, to determine if they can operate safely in hazardous locations. Certification ensures that the equipment meets specific industrial standards and is suitable for use in the designated hazardous location.
The Hazloc testing and certification process involves various steps, including product evaluation, testing, and documentation review. The testing process includes assessing the equipment’s ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions and the likelihood of igniting flammable gases or combustible dust. The testing may also involve exposing the equipment to a specific hazardous environment to evaluate its performance.
In most regions, certification of Hazloc equipment is mandatory. For example, in North America, equipment must meet the National Electrical Code (NEC) or Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) standards.
Certification marks, such as the UL, CSA, or ETL logos, indicate that the equipment has undergone Hazloc testing and certification. These marks also provide assurance that the equipment meets the relevant certification requirements and has been approved for use in hazardous locations.
UL plays an important role in developing safety standards and certifying that products comply with those standards but it should be noted that:
• UL Listed is for whole products, such as machinery or external power supplies.
• UL Recognized is for component parts, which will be installed as part of a larger.
• UL Certified is a broader term that may indicate a component, product, system, process, personnel, or facility has passed the UL certification process.
