TÜV SÜD's explosion-proof testing laboratory


In the workplace, the presence of mixtures containing combustible dusts, flammable gases, vapors, or mists can give rise to potentially explosive atmospheres. Consequently, it is imperative that equipment, components and assemblies utilized within or in conjunction with these environments adhere to specific industrial safety standards. These standards encompass all explosion-proof equipment and systems, including safety, control, and regulatory devices, as well as protective elements, equipment, and systems. Hence, it is necessary to subject the pertinent equipment to type testing to ensure that it meets the structural and performance requirements for explosion-proof functionality.
