DU-PUY offers a complete range of industrial vacuum cleaners certified ATEX that perfectly meets the construction needs to prevent the formation of ignition sources. For areas where there is a risk of explosion, a vacuum cleaner must prevent static electricity from accumulating, this can be done by means of components which allow it to be discharged to the ground by means of antistatic filters, Engines specifically designed to prevent overheating and accessories in conductive materials. The series of ATEX vacuum cleaners, created by DU-PUY, is produced with components and accessories that make it suitable to operate in full compliance with ATEX regulations as established by the European Union Directive 2014/34/EU.
The ATEX zones are classified according to whether they involve flammable gases or powders. This means that ATEX certified vacuum cleaners are available for work in areas where flammable gases, mists, vapours or dusts are present, classified as follows:
- Zone 0 (gas) or Zone 20 (dust): for long-term work where an explosive atmosphere is continuously present;
- Zone 1 (gas) or Zone 21 (dust): for working areas where an explosive atmosphere consisting of air and flammable substances is likely to occur;
- Zone 2 (gas) or Zone 22 (dusts): where the creation of an explosive atmosphere occurs only for short periods.
The ATEX certified industrial vacuum cleaners are suitable for operating in explosion risk environments.
The ATEX certification for industrial vacuuming requires stringent safety systems such as grounding, the presence of antistatic filters, certified motors, isolated electrical parts and a turbine-driven suction body. Industrial vacuum cleaners for explosive environments must be certified in order to work under the highest safety standards.
