ISO 80079-36 Ed. 1.0: Explosive atmospheres - Part 36: Non-electrical equipment for use in explosive atmospheres - Basic methods and requirements


To develop an International Standard that specifies the basic method and requirements for design, construction, testing and marking of non-electrical equipment intended for use in explosive atmospheres in air of gas, vapour, mist and dusts. Such atmospheres can also exist inside the equipment. In addition, the external atmosphere can be drawn inside the equipment by natural breathing produced as a result of fluctuations in the equipment?s internal operating pressure, and/or temperature.
