ATEX Applications

Metal ATEX Fans: Our EX rated ATEX Fan range manufactured from a metal composition, are designed for any application in which there is potential for explosive gasses being present in the environment or in the air stream. Some common examples would be hydrogen fumes from battery charging areas, marine and offshore, chemical, oil & gas, methane gas in water processing plant, process powders and petro-chemical plants. The exact type of ATEX fan required is dependent on the application, temperature, materials and pressure required. Our industrial team are extensively training on explosive and hazardous atmospheres and can help with the correct ATEX fan selection provided they are supplied with an the accurate and responsibly determined gas and dust zone that the fan will be operating within.

What is an ATEX Rated Fan?

 

ATEX rated fans are those that can work in explosive atmospheres, hence their name. These can be in an industrial, tertiary, or commercial environment. During the manufacture, treatment, transport and storage of flammable substances, gases, vapours or mists are produced or leaked into the environment. The combination of these emissions with the oxygen in the air leads to the creation of a potentially explosive atmosphere that can explode in the event of ignition. A wide range of explosive chemicals, gases and dust determine the ATEX requirement of an area. Our team can advise on the best explosion proof fan solution to suit the application and atmosphere that you will be placing the fan into.

Transporting air in explosive atmospheres safely involves using ATEX Casals fans. Our range of ATEX rated fans are available in an enviable great diverse range: wall-mounted or boxed axial, cased axial, medium pressure made of steel or plastic, high pressure, roof, medium pressure centrifugal, direct and belt driven. There are as many options as possible installations.

 

Explosion Proof Fan Design

 

 

Compliance with the ATEX Directive

 

Since the ATEX Directive became enforceable, great importance is attached to defining the flameproof hazard. All decisions concerning specification of the correct fan type are now the responsibility of the end-user. The fan manufacturer must only supply product that is fully ATEX compliant i.e. the entire fan and motor assembly. All ATEX Fan quotes will be supplied with core competency information such as ATEX warranty, ATEX guidance and proof that the fan quoted is suitable and certified for the requirement of the project based on the information provided from the customer. This ensures we supply the correct fan for your needs. In explosion proof environments, safety comes before the sale every time at Axair. For more information see ATEX 94/9/EC.
