Electrical equipment in cold weather applications
Cold weather subjects electrical equipment to different conditions than most standard approvals cover. The main concerns are safety and function. For Class 1 locations, the ability of equipment to maintain its explosion-protection properties is critical. Cold temperatures affect both the properties of the materials that make up the equipment and the explosive atmosphere surrounding it. Functionality can also be negatively impacted. This paper explores the factors affecting electrical equipment safety and performance in extremely low temperatures.
