Hazardous Area Instrumentation Training Course
ESBN: A91-0150-2b59-00B2

Description:  

Designing, maintaining and operating of Instrumentation and Control Systems in Hazardous Areas, requires specialized knowledge which ensures that these systems work safely, without being sources of ignition themselves. There are many ways in which explosion protection of these systems is achieved. These include protection methods like Explosion proofing, Intrinsic Safety, Increased safety, Pressurization, etc which have to be understood in depth by the Instrumentation and Control engineers and technicians who are responsible for designing & maintaining these.

 

Various standards and practices exist at National and International levels and these have to be adhered to, while working with instrumentation and control systems in hazardous areas. This hazardous areas training course will help your staff understand the basic fundamentals of explosion protection, know about standards for Area, material & temperature classification, understand the rationale behind these, understand how the different explosion protection techniques like Intrinsic Safety & explosion proof are implemented in practice.

 

The safety training material in this Elearning includes contemporary topics like "Fieldbus in hazardous areas" too. Certification, marking and labeling, the new ATEX directives are also covered. Lastly it has a guide on how to carry out inspections and maintenance of this equipment to ensure that it remains "safe for use".

 

This version reflects the changes that have taken place in many of the standards and practices in the last few years, especially regarding Fieldbus as also in ATEX, the concept of Equipment Protection Levels from IEC the concept of Ex-ic and so on. 

 

Designers, Engineers & Technicians as well as Safety Inspectors and Safety Managers will find it extremely useful. This is the culmination of many man-hours of work, intended to present this subject in a very easy-to-understand format. The pictures, animations and schematics ensure that the learner fully understands the subject. A self assessment test and a Glossary is included. For a fraction of the time and money spent on a classroom course, learn all of these things in the comfort of your home or office.
