As such, any processes or products that may contribute to an explosive atmosphere must be evaluated against Canadian or International safety standards.

 

Fields that commonly require Hazardous Locations Testing services include:

 

     Mining

     Oil and Gas

     Chemical processing/refining

     Agriculture

     Pharmaceutical

 

 

Hazardous Locations Certification & Labeling in Canada

 

Hazardous locations equipment is tested against a series of standards known as the  IEC/EN/CSA/UL 60079 standards. These standards ensure that a product complies with general safety and performance regulations of the applicable market.

 

Note: these standards may differ slightly in some regions.

A field evaluation or certification program provides manufacturers with the flexibility of having products certified in the field or at a manufacturer’s location. This program allows the manufacturers to evaluate and certify:

     One-time manufactured or assembled equipment

     A small batch of equipment

     A specific number of units for a wide range of products

During certification and labeling, our technical team performs the following tasks:

     Construction evaluation on the product with specific standards

     Prepares test plans and begins testing

     Issues a findings letter for any non conformance

     Affixes a label and provides a final certification report if the product complies with all standard requirements
