When we talk about flammable gases & vapours, we mostly think Oil & Gas – but these gases & vapours along with combustible dusts can create potentially explosive atmospheres in such areas as:

  • Automotive refuelling stations or petrol stations
  • Oil refineries, rigs and processing plants
  • Oil and gas tankers, drilling ships and FPSO (Floating Production Storage Offloading vessels)
  • Chemical processing plants
  • Printing industries, paper and textiles
  • Hospital operating theatres
  • Aircraft refuelling and hangars
  • Surface coating industries
  • Underground coal mines
  • Sewerage treatment plants
  • Gas pipelines and distribution centres
  • Grain handling and storage and processing (flour-milling industry)
  • Woodworking areas
  • Sugar refineries
  • Light metal working, where metal dust and fine particles can appear
