Hazardous location motors are devices/equipment used in hazardous areas, where concentrations of flammable gases, vapor and dust are high. Understandably, this kind of hazardous environment possesses serious threats to the environment so much that even small sparks or high surface temperatures can ignite hazardous substances and cause an explosion. The explosion-proof motors approved for Class I locations consist of all the features used in the most critical areas where cleanliness, wash-down tolerance and safety due to hazardous liquids, vapors or dust exist. It not only solves the motion control needs of the application but also can be operated safely and does not become an ignition source for a hazardous event.
The North America hazardous location motors market is estimated to be worth USD 791 million in 2016 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.16% during the forecast period to reach USD 1.02 billion by 2021.There are different types of motors used in different hazardous locations consisting of different classes and zones. The different zones are zone 0, zone 20, zone 1, zone 21, zone 2 and zone 22, whereas the classes are divided into class I, class II and class III. The different classes identify the physical characteristics of the hazardous materials present and accordingly the motor will operate. However, due to technological innovation and growing safety measures, it is imperative that all the hazardous location motors carry T-code designation. The T-codes signify the maximum absolute motor surface temperature that will develop under all conditions of operation, including motor overload and even burnout. It must be approved for different classes, zones and divisions, according to their different operation areas.
The motors are designed/constructed in such a way that they are equipped with sufficient provisions to battle adverse conditions like explosions so that they can prevent the release of explosive gases or vapors into the surrounding environment. Such motors are used in hazardous locations and are commonly used in applications like the spray painting and finishing areas, petroleum refining plants, dry cleaning facilities, utility gas plants, grain elevators and grain handling facilities, aluminum manufacturing and storage areas, firework plants and storage areas and others.
The North America hazardous location motors market has been segmented on basis of types, class, division, hazardous zones, applications and geography. On the basis of types, the market has been segmented into explosion-proof general purpose motors, drill rig duty motors, explosion-proof pump motors, explosion-proof inverter duty motors, explosion-proof severe duty motors and others.
Some of the market players mentioned in the report are Emerson Industrial Automation, Brook Crompton, ABB Group, Bluffton Motors Works, Rockwell Automation and WEG Industries.
Technological innovation, growing safety measures and increasing demand for energy efficient motors are some of the major drivers stimulating the growth of this segment.
The major challenges faced by the North American hazardous location motors market are constructing of motors that completely contains an internal explosion, without rupturing and constructing it in such a way that any hot gases escaping the enclosure are forced to exit through long, narrow opening known as flame paths.
