Technical Specifications

Which Explosion-Proof Level Is Higher, BT4 or CT6

The BT4 model is classified under Explosion-proof Class B with a temperature rating of T4, stipulating that the equipment’s surface temperature cannot exceed 135°C.

Conversely, the CT6 model holds a Class C explosion-proof rating, covering the requirements of BT4 and applicable to zones with dangerous gases like hydrogen and acetylene. T6 equipment must maintain a surface temperature no higher than 85°C.

In terms of temperature categories, T6 represents the highest safety level, suggesting that a lower equipment surface temperature is preferable.

As a result, CT6 possesses a superior explosion-proof classification.
