The ATEX (Atmosphère Explosive) directive consists of two EU directives describing what equipment and work environment is allowed in an environmental with an explosive atmosphere.
ATEX 137 - workplace directive 99/92/EC
ATEX95 - equipment directive 94/9/EC (for the manufacturer)
This regulation apply to all equipment intended for use in explosive atmosphere whether electrical or mechanical, including protective systems. The primary purpose of this regulation is the safety and protection of persons working in explosion proof areas.
Our pumps are in accordance with the equipment directions od 94/9/EC for equipment and protective systems for intended use in axplosive atmospheres and comply to the norms EN13463-1 and EN13463-5 of the ATEX areas.
EN13463-1: Non electrical devices intended for use in explosive atmospheres – basic methods and requirements
