    Wiring methods for Creosote treating facility

    We are trying to determine what class of wiring to install in a plant which pressure treats railroad ties with Creosote.

    Creosote is actually a generic term. There are several forms. It would be helpful to have the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) of the product and the temperatures your process uses.

    That said, if it appears that the process would create a Classified location, you need to have someone experienced with electrical area classification, help determine the boundaries and wiring methods.
