ATEX EQUIPMENT EXPLAINED
ATEX Equipment, also known as “Atmosphères Explosibles” ensures the protection against the occurrence of an explosion in an environment where dust or flammable gas is present.
Getting To Those Hard To Reach Places
ATEX Cleaning systems are specially designed to enable the machine operator to clean at a high level while keeping their feet firmly on the ground, to enable this these specialist ATEX vacuums come equipped with pole kits which allow extension of up to 40 feet (12 meters) and are certified by Element (www.element.com) as safe for use within ATEX 22 explosive dust zones.
Why ATEX Hire Could Offer a More Favourable Solution
Many commercial sites, in particular, food manufacturing (flour mills for example) need to remove potentially explosive dust that rests at a height. CapEx can often act as a barrier to entry when purchasing specialist ATEX equipment, which leaves hire as one of the only options.
