About the Presenter:

Mohammad Khalid, P. Eng. is currently Manager of Electrical/Control & Instrumentation Group of R.V Anderson Associates Ltd. Toronto. Mohammad is in the design and consultancy business since the last 35 years and designed scores of water and wastewater treatment plants in Canada and overseas.  Mohammad is a member of Executive Committee of OESC Chapter 22, “Locations in which corrosive liquids vapors or excessive moisture are likely to be present.” Mohammad is also a member of PEO Experience Review Committee.

Synopsis of the Topic: Hazardous Area Classifications is generally not a well understood topic among engineers and many times designers use over-rated equipment and end up of having an expensive design for their clients.

This presentation will help in understanding the basis of Area Classifications, selection of properly rated equipment and exceptions permitted in accordance with Ontario Electrical Safety Code. The presentation will also address differences between Canadian and US Standards (NFPA). A case study of a Wastewater Treatment Plant including various type of electrical equipment suitable for the classified areas will be presented.
