Equipment for Hazardous Environments
Note: The products contained within our intrinsically safe category are intended for use in hazardous environments. Devices in these areas require detailed attention to specification and installation.
Intrinsically safe equipment plays a vital role in maintaining quality within hazardous areas. Due to the risk involved with operating electrical components in these areas, specialized equipment is developed to reduce risk with this added element while ensuring the same level of accuracy and operational efficiency.
The main focus of intrinsically safe equipment is the protection or containment of the internal electrical systems such as control circuits which have the potential to ignite flammable materials in the area. With different components of industrial systems potentially spanning multiple hazard zones, it’s important to ensure all segments of an intrinsically safe system comply with recommended certification standards such as FM.
Intrinsically Safe Tools
When you’re working in hazardous environments or in dangerous settings, the safety of your equipment is paramount. That’s why equipment that’s safe by design is necessary for these operational settings or manufacturing facilities. And those sort of intrinsically safe tools are something that Cross provides.
Over time, equipment tends to become less accurate. This is particularly true for intrinsically safe equipment and tools that are used in hazardous environments. For instance, tools like indicators and load cells that are built to be intrinsically safe may be necessary for these facilities in order to meet safety or compliance regulations.
That’s why it’s important to get the intrinsically safe equipment you need from trusted brands with traceable calibration standards. Which is exactly what Cross Precision Measurement offers.
Take a look at our intrinsically safe product offering. If you see what you need, we’ll be happy to provide it to you as quickly as possible. Even if you don’t see exactly what you need, there’s a good chance our engineering team can develop a custom solution for you.
Weighing materials in hazardous environments requires particular attention to accuracy and safety. For instance, if your day-to-day operations involve weighing something like dynamite, you need extremely safe equipment.
In potentially explosive or otherwise hazardous environments, all equipment must comply with recommended certification standards (such as FM). This includes intrinsically safe weigh modules and load cells.
