If you are not sure whether you need an explosion proof ATEX fan or need to know the ATEX zone in which your application is classified, please consult an official authority in your country.
ATEX is an acronym derived from the words “Atmospheres Explosibles” and forms part of a European equipment directive known as ATEX 2014-34 EU. The directive covers manufacturing standards and ensures that people are protected against the risk that may be caused by dangerous substances. An application will require an explosion proof ATEX fan if there are flammable, combustible gases or dusts present at any time in the airstream.
To protect personnel and the public from harm consider using compact frame axial fans alongside a metal fan guard or plastic finger guard. Using a metal fan guard will protect moving parts of the frame axial fan and prevent harm to those in contact. We supply a wide range of axial fans including high temperature, DCEC and AC.
