<font color="#000000">Found this at a local gas station. This feeds the HID lighting for the fuel island. </font> <font color="#000000">A B-Cap is just visible, upside down and full of water, connected to the white wires. The black wire has a bare end that may have been fastened to the missing plate's screw, I guess it's the ground. Thought you Hazardous Location guys would appreciate this...

Virgil,

I Think I've been to this gas station. It is just up the road from the one that had a gasoline dispenser wired with Romex & since the built in switch was broken, had a plain old light switch to start the pump. Ain't electrical work in WV just great?

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

The dispenser I mentioned was taken out of service after I pointed out the hazards to the owner. The installer of the dispenser (a gasoline wholesaler) felt theere was nothing wrong since he hasn't had any explosions, yet.

I've finally started carrying a camera around. Maybe if I make enough $$$ this year, I'll get a digital one.I do a lot of service calls & inspections so I get to see some real dandy work.

Hey, it's the same where ever you go,

Up here i went to a gas station call, self serve, the kid at the counter informed me people were getting "bit" from the nozzle

I got 33 volts to ground [Linked Image]

taking the lower skins off, i found that when the pump had been replaced, none of the fitting were made up, and there was no ground wire

BUT...that station still holds a golden "explosion free" record... [Linked Image]

Hey Tom, between us, with help from our location and "mining electricians" (flame magnet?) we should be able to keep as many violation photos up as Bill and Joe!

Sparky,
re: your post of 1/28/01
I don't think the area in question would be Class 1 Division 1, I think it is Division 2 and if so the fitting in question would be ok for the area(if it didn't have splices and had a cover).
