Oil services are used during all stages of the lifecycle of a well, including drilling, exploration, development, completion and production. Due to the growing demand for oil & gas, there has been an increase in the exploration of oil and gas fields, which has further led to stricter laws and regulations laid down towards safety and product usage in such hazardous locations. All these factors have led to the tremendous growth of hazardous location motors market. As per the statistics, the European hazardous location motors market is estimated to be worth USD 738 million in 2016 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.09% during the forecast period to reach USD 946 million by 2021.
Hazardous location motors are devices/equipment used in hazardous areas where concentrations of flammable gases, vapors and dust are high. Understandably, a hazardous environment possesses serious threats and even small sparks or high surface temperatures in these explosion-prone regions can ignite hazardous substances and cause an explosion. The explosion-proof motors approved for Class I locations contain all the features used in the most critical areas, where cleanliness, wash-down tolerance, and safety due to hazardous liquids, vapors or dust come into existence. This not only solves the motion control needs of the application but also aids in operating safely and does not become an ignition source for a hazardous event.
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 at the place, where the motor will operate. However, due to technological innovation and growing safety measures, all the hazardous location motors should 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. However, it needs to 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. These specially constructed 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 European hazardous location motors market is classified based on their types, classes, divisions, hazardous zones, applications and geographies. Based on their types, the market is 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.
Designing and manufacturing motors that completely engulf an internal explosion, without rupturing or passing out any hot gases from the enclosure so that they are forced to exit through a long, narrow opening known as flame paths. These are the two major challenges faced by European hazardous location motors market.
