ATEX

The word “ATEX” comes from the French “ATmosphères EXplosibles”, that means Explosion Proof and it refers to the European Union directive Nr. 34, became effective on the 30th of March 2014. This directive regulates the using of tools in explosion risks zones or in hazardous areas. The IEC classification system recognizes three levels of probability that an ignitable concentration of flammable gases or vapours might be present.
 
- Zone 0: the concentration is present continuously or for long periods of time.
- Zone 1: the concentration is likely to exist under normal operating conditions and it may exist frequently.
- Zone 2: the concentration is not likely to occur during normal operation; it occurs for only a short period of time and becomes hazardous only in case of an accident or some unusual operating condition.
 
All the tools should be certified for entering in these areas, in order to guarantee the essential requirements for safety respect.
