The flameproof enclosure is the one which can withstand the pressure build-up during an internal ignition of a flammable mixture and is designed to cool any flames occurring within the enclosure to below the ignition temperature.

Widely used on tanker fleet especially on gas carriers.

There are strict rules governing the placement and category of electrical equipment allowed in certain areas of liquefied gas carriers. One such category is that of flameproof enclosures.
