OKB Gamma Explosion-Proof Equipment for Safe Operation of Industrial Companies

Electric heating systems are used to provide freeze protection and to maintain set temperatures in the chemical and oil refining industry, oil and gas extraction and transportation, in boiler systems, waste disposal facilities, at thermal power plants, district power plants, hydroelectric dams. Those operations are classified as high hazard zones, which imposes strict safety requirements governed by international standards.

Not all manufacturers have the required expertise to offer specialized solutions for explosive environments. OKB Gamma (part of SST Group) is a Russian manufacturer of explosion-proof equipment and components for electric heating systems and supplies its products to 47 countries worldwide.

OKB Gamma is expanding its product range of explosion-proof equipment certified for compliance with the international IECEx standards. On June 8, 2018, the specialized certification body NANIO CCVE issued IECEx certificates covering OKB Gamma products for export markets, specifically the series-resistance fluopolymer-insulated cables SNF and SNF-L, electrical heating systems based on SNF and SNF-L cables, and junction boxes JB.

Earlier, the company had similar certificates issued for self-regulating heating cables, electric heating systems based on self-regulating cables, and the skin effect-based electrical heating system IRHS-15000.

International IECEx certification proves that the solutions by SST Group are safe to be operated at industrial sites in explosive areas. Compliance with IECEx standards guarantees explosion safety of Ex equipment to the Group’s global customers.
