In enviroments with combustible substaces such as gases, fogs, fumes and dusts, danger of explosion is always prevalent. In such plants, the use of machines with explosion protection is strictly required.  Those are constructed in such way, that they cannot become a source of ignition. Neither do they generate sparks nor hot surface temperatures.
