Process Engineer’s Whiteboard – Electrical Area Classification

An Area Electrical Classification (EAC) drawing is an important piece of process safety information that is used in the design of electrical equipment to ensure that it can safely operate near other process equipment that may generate hazardous conditions. Rick Todd put together this Process Engineering Whiteboard which outlines some of the considerations while putting together these drawings. If you need help in setting the right EAC boundaries in your plant, give the Process Experts at Norton Engineering Consultants a call!
