ABSTRACT
The purpose of the paper is to perform a thorough analysis of the types of breakdowns, both electrical and mechanical, which are likely to occur in the case of electrical drives made up of explosion proof electric motors used in hazardous locations. Based on this analysis, several solutions are identified, in order to enhance the reliability in exploitation and the maintenance of electrical drives consisting of Ex proof electric motors commonly used in the oil and gas industry. These solutions can be used both by explosion proof motor manufacturers and the end users of this equipment in oil and gas applications, in order to enhance the safety against explosion hazard.

Keywords:electric motor, explosion proof, maintenance, reliability.
