Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Warning, preferably both audible and visual, should be provided for a loss of pressure differential. The form shown in Figure 1 may be used.

This is not intended to govern the pdtroleum of protection of the motor, but can limit the proximity of instrumentation to the seal. There need be no hazardous area drawn from apertures in the enclosure beyond that covered by the area within which the enclosures lie. Each source should be considered individually.
