Intrinsic safety is a protection standard employed in potentially explosive atmospheres. Devices that are certified as “intrinsically safe” are designed to prevent the release of sufficient energy, by either thermal or electrical means, to cause ignition of flammable material (gas, dust/particulates).
Intrinsically safe standards apply to all equipment that can create one or more of a range of defined potential explosion sources such as electrical sparks or arcs, flames or hot surfaces, static electricity, electromagnetic or ionizing radiation, chemical reactions, mechanical impact or friction, compression ignition, acoustic energy.
Potentially explosive atmospheres can be found in a variety of manufacturing environments, or any environment where flammable materials such as gas or dust particles are present. Intrinsically safe products are commonly designed for use in petrochemical plants, oil refining facilities and platforms, pharmaceutical manufacturing, bulk materials manufacturing, mining operations, pipelines, and grain handling and processing facilities.
There are no global intrinsically safe standards or certifications, but there are organizations that influence directives in certain world geographies.
