Title Electrical apparatus for potentially explosive atmospheres - Electrostatic hand-held spraying equipment
Project Number 16917
Abstract/Scope This European Standard specifies the constructional and test requirements for hand-held and hand-operated electrostatic spraying equipment and associated apparatus which can be used to spray flammable liquid coating materials, flammable coating powders or flammable flock creating explosive atmosphere in spraying areas which may or may not contain flammable adhesives. This standard only deals with the hazards involved in the coating process when hand-held electrostatic spraying equipment is used as prescribed and in accordance with the conditions which are to be expected according to the manufacturer. As to other hazards involved in the use of hand-held spraying equipment, the safety requirements of EN 1953:1998 shall be met. The spraying equipment shall be constructed suitable for group II category 2 as defined in EN 60079-0
