ATEX Vacuum systems
ATEX approved vacuum systems
ATEX is the name frequently given to the two European Directives (Directive 99/92/EC & 94/9/EC) which provide the minimum requirements for improving the health, safety and protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres.
DISAB manufactures ATEX vacuum systems for use in industrial settings that may contain, or have activities that produce, explosive or potentially explosive atmospheres. Examples include places where work activities create or release flammable gases or in workplaces handling fine organic dusts such as grains, flour, wood, resins, plastics, coal, light metals, textiles and paper.
Our ATEX vacuum systems are constructed to minimise the risk of ignition in these industrial settings. Utilising the latest design technology DISAB supply industrial vacuum systems that can prevent dust build-ups, which can cause life threatening and destructive explosions.
Disab ATEX complying features include:
- Various blast panels fitted to ensure intrinsic safety, inlcuding fire arrester
- An anti-static safety filter.
- Differential pressure guard
- Rubber covered dust inlet
- Safety locking device on discharge valves
CASE STUDY: Hope Construction Materials
The Hope Valley site is the largest in the country and has a multitude of wet and dry spillage and waste handling requirements. Following a blockage, which was causing major problems within the centralised pipework system of the site’s Waste-Derived Fuel plant, Hope Construction’s Project Engineer Steven Salt decided the best option to clear the obstruction was to hire a DISAB BagVac.
