Would you like to know more about the European ATEX directives? Electromach can certainly help you!
You can probably imagine that specific directives and standards apply in places and areas where there is a potential risk of explosions. This is laid down in the national and international legislation.
ATEX is short for ATmosphères EXplosibles
The ATEX guidelines are divided into 2 operating areas, gas explosion hazard and dust explosion hazard. There are two ATEX directives, The directive 2014/34/EU and 1999/92/EC.
The directive 2014/34/EU is also called the ATEX 114 directive (previously ATEX 95), is applicable to the manufacturing of equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
Products that are “approved” for use in potentially explosive environments need certification. There are a lot of steps to be taken before certification is complete. This includes assessing the design up to fully testing of the product. During this process, the various standards that apply to the product are continuously considered.
ATEX certified products are always marked. This marking consists of the following parts:
The applicable Atex zone, types of protection, gas group (IIA, IIB or IIC), temperature class (T1 to T6).
The directive 1999/92/EC is also known as the ATEX 153 directive (previously ATEX 137). This guideline contains the minimum requirements for improving the safety and health protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres.
There are only 3 elements required to cause an explosion:
