Almost every industrial site in the world, whether in the chemical, petrochemical, food, cosmetics/pharmaceutical business, employs some type or several types of pump(s) and pumping systems in some stage of the manufacturing process. A significant number of industrial applications, where pumping systems are employed, are classed as potentially explosive atmospheres.

In a global market, where business is fast and international access to the markets is directly related to regulatory compliance, product certification is paramount for safety purposes as well as for facilitating business trade.

The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the Ex certification schemes that apply to non-electrical equipment and discuss design and certification requirements specific to pumping system intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

At the end of this course you will have a knowledge of:

  • The scope of the certification schemes that apply to non-electrical equipment
  • An overview of the technical and compliance requirements that apply to pumping systems  
  • Essential assessment principles and methods
