What is the importance to work with certified ATEX products?

Moscow, 18 feb - ИА Neftegaz.RU. ATEX, means Explosive Atmosphere, it results from a mixture with air of combustible substances (flour, wood dust, solvent vapors, gas), in proportions such that a sufficient source of ignition of energy produce its explosion or inflammation. The explosion, unlike the fire, is an almost instantaneous combustion. It causes a significant blast effect, accompanied by flames and heat. This type of explosion obviously has serious consequences for both humans and equipment. They are few in number compared to other work-related accidents, but their gravity is much greater, up to the deaths of people at the scene.

ATEX regulations are a couple of EU directives that define standards (health and safety requirements and conformity assessment procedures) for any equipment that is intended for use in Hazardous Areas. Understanding the regulations and standards by which industrial equipment should be approved in order to operate in a hazardous area is fundamental to ensuring the safety of personnel and property. Through rigorous testing, a piece of equipment is assigned an area classification, division or zone, equipment group, and temperature class.

«We are aware of the risks incurred by people using our products, that is why our first concern when designing a product is worker’s safety, we take regulations very seriously.»
Greg Kang, Director of Product Development for Lights at Peli Products.
