Safety notice – Use of barrier glands in potentially explosive atmospheres to meet IEC 60079-14:2013 (edition 5)

The current International Standard allows the use of a ‘standard’ Ex certified flameproof gland as opposed to a Ex certified ‘barrier gland’ without the requirement to apply the previous flowchart used in the British Standard. There is evidence this approach creates a fire and explosion risk. This notice provides information on what action to take.

PLEASE NOTE !

Covid19 – Our awards event scheduled for tonight WILL go ahead as planned!!
