Table 5 of ATEX 2014/34/EU Guidelines
By definition, ‘Explosive Atmosphere’ means a mixture with air, under atmospheric conditions, of flammable substances in the form of gases, vapours, mists or dusts in which, after ignition has occurred, combustion spreads to the entire unburned mixture. ‘Potentially Explosive Atmosphere’ means an atmosphere which could become explosive due to local and operational conditions.
