Hazardous locations or Hazloc are areas with a risk of explosion or fire. These hazards could be due to the presence of gases that could ignite or combustible dust that could potentially create an explosion. Places like gas stations that are frequently accessed by the general population every day also come under this classification. You can trust Trinity Electronic Systems Ltd in Edmonton, also serving Calgary, for high-quality hazardous location equipment designs that can be used for:

  • Oil rigs and mines
  • Chemical plants
  • Pipeline transfer areas
  • Oil storage tankers
  • And many more industrial applications!

Please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements and customize your hazardous location equipment design with our experts.

Features of Hazloc Equipment Designs

Trinity Electronics Systems Ltd has offered customized hazardous location equipment designs in Calgary and Edmonton for over 35 years. Our products are known for the following features:

Explosion Proof
The explosion-proof products are more of a packaging issue. Seals or aluminum castings are used to keep internally created arcs or sparks from igniting explosive materials.

Intrinsically Safe
Intrinsically safe designs are usually far more challenging due to the minimal energy available to the circuit. There is such a small amount of energy that even a fault cannot produce sufficient energy to cause ignition.

Division 1 or Division 2
The areas where the equipment is operated are described by divisions. Division 1 (Div 1) rated equipment is used in areas where ignitable dust or gases exists under normal operating conditions or where frequent maintenance work creates concentrations of explosive materials. Division 2 (Div 2) areas are those where dust or gases are handled, processed, or used but are normally safely contained. Div 2 design rules tend to be a little more forgiving. Hazloc equipment designs often require extended operating temperatures or low operating current (e.g. battery operated). Hazloc equipment will also be more expensive than its non-rated counterparts due to initial and ongoing certification costs and record keeping.
