According to international standards, electrical and non-electrical equipment installed in hazardous areas need to prove their enhanced capability of withstanding special external events. Therefore special laboratories capable of simulate such extreme conditions are required. To this extent CESI Group offers a wide range of testing services, on electrical and non-Electrical equipment used in hazardous areas:
- Tests in explosive mixture (Explosion proof and Flameproof tests)
- Impact tests
- Static overpressure tests
- Ex-i spark ignition tests
- Ingress Protection Tests (IP code)
- Environmental Exposure Tests
- Thermal Tests
- Dimensional Checks
- Non-Electrical Product Tests
CESI Group Explosion proof laboratory is accredited according to IECEx Certification Scheme and according to ATEX Directive 94/9/CE.
