Air Motors with Atex Certification – Fiam
The term “ATEX”, acronym of “Atmosphere” and “Explosive”, groups two European Union directives: one for the certification by users of plants and equipment to guarantee the safety and the health of workers in explosive risk environments; the other to bring up to standard products and equipment intended to be used in explosive risk areas.
In this latter case falls the certification that Fiam provides for its customers regarding special air motors, as Mechanical Designer Mr. Paolo Girotto explains: “To certify ATEX an air motor means to declare that our product can be used in explosive risk environments or inside certain machines that require additional caution”.
The areas where explosive atmospheres can be formed in quantities such as to request particular protection measures are very often located in the following productive sectors: landfill sites and civil engineering, chemical industry, energy production, disposal, gas supply, wood industry, painting, agriculture, metallurgy, food and feed industry, pharmaceutical industry, refineries, waste recycling.
The solutions intended to be used in areas that fall within the ATEX characteristics need to be also classified in detail by the manufacturer. For example, regarding the type of substances widespread in the air, the classifications with indication 0,1 and 2 refer to gas, while the ones with indication 20, 21 and 22 to dusts; conversely, concerning the group of materials, we classify as I the specific case of use in mines, while with group II we refer to the use in all the other surface industries.
