CSA Certification for use in the United States and Canada
EXHEAT carry a wide range of electric heating equipment which are certified CSA for use in the United States and Canada. The CSA certification ensures that equipment is designed and manufactured to the highest safety standards.
Under the CSA scheme hazardous locations have traditionally been defined by the following combination of Class and Division:
Class I - A location where a quantity of flammable gas or vapor, sufficient to produce an explosive or ignitable mixture, may be present in the air.
Class II - A location made hazardous by the presence of combustible or electrically conductive dust, including Groups E (metal dust), F (coal dust) and G (grain dust).
Class III - A location made hazardous by the presence of easily ignitable fibres or flyings in the air, but not likely in sufficient quantities to produce ignitable mixtures.
Division 1 - A location where a classified hazard is likely to exist.
Division 2 - A location where a classified hazard does not normally exist but is possible under abnormal conditions.
