ATEX program

Avoid dust explosions using ATEX-compliant extraction installations.

The risk of fire and explosion is present in all industrial systems where combustible dusts arise. Given certain prerequisites, air can produce an explosive mixture in these explosive areas. A small spark, for example caused by a static discharge, is all it takes to cause a dust explosion. ATEX-compliant models of extraction equipment and installations protect against this.

IGNITABLE ATMOSPHERE

ATEX stands for ATmosphère EXplosible (explosive atmosphere) and describes the guidelines comprising ATEX Product Guidelines 2014/34/EU (unofficially ATEX 114) and ATEX Operating Guidelines 1999/92/EC (unofficial ATEX 137). 
The ATEX Product guidelines has been in use since 21st April 2016 and the ATEX operating guidelines are mandatory since 2002.


The ATEX guidelines name three zone categories for dust (Zone 20, 21 and 22) and gas (Zone 0, 1 and 2). An expert to be approved and commissioned by the operator is to classify the work area into appropriate categories.
