This book was written for engineers, scientists, plant safety personnel, and students in the field of electrical engineering to provide them with an introduction to the basic principles of explosion protection of electrical equipment and the relevant protection techniques. It certainly fulfills its objectives as it presents much useful and practical information on various types of electrical equipment and protective measures used in industry. It will be more useful to engineers in the UK and Europe than for engineers in the US, but even these will benefit from it if they work for a multi-national corporation which has plants outside the US. - Journal of Loss Prevention in The Process Industries "Groh discusses both theory and practice. The technical(mathematical) basis for explosion protection is well developed. The theory and practice are well illustrated with numerous figures and photographs of installations...I believe the book will be of significant interest to engineers in the field." - Journal of Hazardous Materials
