ATEX Vacuum System
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.
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. We manufacture powerful and robust ATEX vacuum systems that are constructed to minimise the risk of ignition in these industrial settings. Utilising the latest design technology DISAB supply ATEX industrial vacuum systems that can prevent dust build-ups, which can cause life threatening and destructive explosions.
ATEX Vacuum Cleaners
Choosing a DISAB ATEX approved industrial vacuum provides peace of mind. We are specialists in the supply of ATEX industrial vacuum units and utilise the very latest technology to ensure that our machines not only conform to UK and EU law but will remove dust in potentially hazardous environments without a risk to life. Our ATEX vacuum cleaners include the following features:
- Various blast panels fitted to ensure intrinsic safety, including 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.
Flexible waste and dust removal
The BagVac offers a highly flexible waste and dust removal solution that’s forklift portable and provides fully enclosed and dust-free material collection, either in combination with a centralised pipework system or stand-alone using its own flexible suction hoses. Its high performance and rate of vacuum efficiency is achieved via the BagVac’sTM side channel exhauster, enabling long suction distances – 180 feet and more – and fast recovery rates. An integral hopper fitted with a 250mm chute for discharge into large capacity or euro-bags means efficient, fully enclosed material recovery and its filter assembly requires only minimal maintenance.
