Tramontina Eletrik (unit of the Tramontina Group) is specialized in manufacturing electrical products. Through the Ex Line, it offers solutions intended for installations in environments with explosive atmospheres and industrial areas. Understand more about the line’s development.

Basic properties of flammable substances

In classifying areas, knowledge of four properties of flammable substances is crucial: gas, vapor, flammable liquid and combustible dust.

Explosive atmosphere

An explosive atmosphere occurs when there is a mixture of oxygen (air) and flammable substances in which an ignition source (spark or hot surface) can cause an explosion. Explosions can only occur with these three elements in the right proportions.

Classified areas

Classified areas are places where explosive atmospheres may be formed due to the presence of flammable substances. Classification evaluates the properties of flammable substances, equipment characteristics, ventilation and environment temperature, among others.
