The sturdy construction of explosion-proof motors
can eliminate fires and other risks by withstanding and containing an internal explosion. For this reason, it is highly recommended to use explosion-proof motors in facilities where chemicals
and even dust can create unwanted mishaps.
It’s important to know a hazardous location motor’s three different classifications first. By doing so, you can have a motor suitable for the operating environment. Class I is created when there is gas in the air. Class II if there is combustible dust. Class III, on the other hand, is identified when there are ignitable fibers. In addition to the class, there are also different divisions and groups.
