Our customers’ safety in their day-to-day work is the main focus of our business. The company has been working towards this for over 80 years and has had a major impact in the sector of explosion protection. Development of explosion protected, electrical control devices and control units was speeded up consistently and successfully since 1926. This resulted in pioneering new developments and innovative products. R. STAHL specialists have been working actively for many years now in national and international committees to define new standards and ever better safety regulations. R. STAHL...

certified low temperatures for very The working temperature range for explosion protected electrical apparatus defined in IEC 60079, Part 0: General Requirements, extends from – 20 °C to + 40 °C. If the type plate contains no other information on ambient temperature, it can be assumed that the apparatus will operate reliably within this temperature range. Frequently however, products need to be used under ambient conditions where prevailing temperatures are either far higher than + 40 °C or are well below – 20 °C. This is case in many regions of the world in the winter months where...

uncompromising Low working temperatures may impact on explosion protection of electrical apparatus. This is why it is necessary to modify various type tests when certifying the products. For instance, 24 -hour low-temperature storage of plastic enclosures and seals is conducted at the intended minimum ambient temperature before the mechanical impact test of the plastic is made. The materials may not become so brittle during the test that leaks occur. Another example is the explosion test of the flameproof-encapsulated enclosures. Either this test is conducted at the intended low...

7 Seals 4 > Most sealing materials become very tacky at temperatures of below –20 °C. Installation, maintenance and repair work should not be carried out at low temperatures in order to avoid destruction of the seals when enclosures are opened. > Special seals that must be stated when ordering the product can be used to seal moving parts. Cables and leads 5 > Many types of cable are unsuitable or only restrictedly suitable for use at low temperatures. > The permitted bending radius must be complied with, depending on temperature. Strip lamps 6 > The reduced light output of strip lamps,...
