On 1 July 2003, EU Directive 94/9/EC on equipment used in potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX) was implemented.
It refers not only to electric equipment, but also mechanical devices such as pumps that may risk causing an explosion.
It is particularly relevant in sectors such as petrochemical, offshore oil platforms, distilleries, painting manufacturing and textile dyeing plants.
Our helical pumps range complies with ATEX requirements for use in Group II, category 2 and for applications in fields with explosion risk due to gas (Zone 1 and 2). Our ATEX-compliant pumps are labelled II 2G IIB TX.
