Adalet, a manufacturer of hazardous-location enclosures, has received IECEx certification on its XCEX series of bolted-flange flameproof enclosures and auxiliary devices.
The objective of IECEx certification is to facilitate international trade in equipment and services for use in explosive atmospheres, while maintaining the required level of safety. Certification attests that a sample of the Ex product described on the certificate has been independently tested and found to comply with the international standards listed on the certificate. It also attests that the manufacturing site has been audited to verify that the manufacturer’s quality system meets IECEx requirements specified in IECEx Operational Document OD 005.
An Ex area may be known by other names, such as hazardous location, hazardous area or explosive atmospheres, and relate to areas where flammable liquids, vapors, gases or combustible dusts are likely to occur in quantities sufficient to cause a fire or explosion.
