The National Electric Code (NEC) written by The National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA) states that all lighting used in a “hazardous location” needs to be explosion proof.
Explosion proof light are high resistance light which can work in harsh condition area such as coal mines, factories, workshop, manufacturing area, restricted area, other coastal or offshore dangerous areas.
Most explosion proof lighting are being manufactured using led technology by top led manufacturers. The difference between explosion proof light and standard lamp. For explosion proof light, it is waterproof, dust-proof, explosion-proof design, corrosion proof, strong impact resistance and there have a anti-mark on the lamp housing cover.
In a standard light fixture, the bulb, contacts, wiring, and any switches are all directly exposed to the local atmosphere. The spark from a loose contact or the movement of the switch, and even the heat of the bulb can be enough to ignite a flammable atmosphere. In an explosion proof light fixture, any explosions that may occur are contained inside the fixture.
So in order to create a safety possible environment, it is very important to use the correct light for the correct location and division. Using the wrong light could be a disastrous mistake.
