Protecting Lives and Properties in Potentially Explosive Environments
 
In the chemical and petrochemical industries, gases, fuels and vapours are often emitted during manufacturing, processing, transporting and storage of flammable materials such as alcohol, acetylene, propane, hydrogen and petrol. When mixed with oxygen in the atmosphere, they form a potentially explosive mixture. If this mixture is accidentally ignited by an electric spark, an explosion can result in serious injury to people and damage to property.
 
The European directive ATEX (Atmosphères Explosibles) on the manufacture and use of equipment designed for explosion-prone environments has become mandatory in the European Union, and evolved into a worldwide benchmark. Equipment in compliance with the ATEX directive bears the symbol ‘Ex’ and must meet with the standards of directive 94/9/EC and be used in accordance with directive 99/92/EC, to ensure the highest safety level required in hazardous environments.
 
With our products for hazardous environments you are on the safe side: Our explosion-proof equipment is designed to provide protection against an explosion using design features in accordance with explosion-proof standards CEI 60079-0 to 60079-7 and EN13463-1 to EN13463-8. Every piece of equipment is type tested by approved notified bodies and all products are provided with CE marking and documentation. They meet the requirements of Equipment Group II, Zones 1 and 2, Ex de IIB T4 as ‘standard’, and Ex de IIC T4 in the ‘special’ configuration.
