Explosion safety in Australian mines and refineries

There are many hazards on a mine site or refinery that pose a risk of explosion, particularly where there are electrical devices. As mines and refineries become more automated, the number of electrical controls required to support digital connectivity is increasing. This means explosion proof measures are more important than ever in keeping workers safe from harm.

This white paper examines the state of explosion protection in the Australian mining and resources sector, addressing the following key points:

  • The current challenges with conventional explosion proof barriers
  • An overview of intrinsic safety and the importance of IECEx and ANZEx certification for compliance
  • How the ELX EtherCAT barrier-free solution can improve safety and operational efficiency
  • Why integration with NAMUR, HART, and FDT/DTM interfaces is important
