Applying or coming into line with ATEX regulations
Machines designed to operate in potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX) must be provided with adequate explosion prevention and protection devices, in compliance with EU Directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX Directive).
So, there are two possible situations here:
- APPLICATION OF THE DIRECTIVE:
new machines are developed and manufactured by Mion Ventoltermica with adequate measures and appropriate explosion prevention and protection devices.
- COMING INTO LINE WITH THE ATEX DIRECTIVE:
existing machines are made safe by adopting appropriate measures and applying appropriate explosion prevention and protection devices (anti-explosion panels for bag filters and silos, etc.).
In addition, machines can be equipped with fire prevention devices (spark detectors, etc.).
