The term “ATEX” comes from the French “atmosphere explosibles”; it is the name given to the framework for controlling explosive atmospheres and the standards of equipment and protective systems used in them…
If you use or supply hydraulic equipment that may be used in potentially explosive atmospheres or your workplace involves the use of flammable materials that could create a potentially explosive atmosphere, then ATEX applies to you.
Preventing releases of dangerous substances which can create explosive atmospheres, and preventing sources of ignition are two widely used ways of reducing the risk. Using the correct equipment obviously plays a really big part too.
The good news is that identifying and sourcing non-standard, specialist hydraulic products such as “Intrinsically Safe” or “ATEX” certified hydraulic equipment is all in a day’s work to the team here.
