Explosion protection

Explosion protection

Because safety is indispensable

With Phoenix Contact, you can ensure the highest levels of safety in potentially explosive areas.

Explosion protection is a part of the field of safety technology and deals with protection against the development of explosions and their effects. Wherever combustible materials, oxygen, and sources of ignition can come together, it is incredibly important to ensure the safety of people, a safe, error-free production process, and a clean environment.

Explosion protection is not just an issue in traditional systems in the chemical and petrochemical industry. Even in apparently harmless areas of the food industry, for example, there is a significant potential for danger. The correlation between explosion protection and gases is often mentioned, but explosive atmospheres can also result from dust. Phoenix Contact provides you with a comprehensive selection of products and solutions for satisfying demands in potentially explosive areas.
