What is ATEX?
If any concentrations of inflammable gasses, mist, vapors or even dust clouds are coupled with the oxygen in the air around us, it is all a means of combustion to cause an explosion. The European Union has developed a series of directives on the control of working conditions in such hazardous areas in order to avoid such an occurrence.
ATEX Stands for?
The term ATEX is derived from the old European Directive, the French title of the 94/9/EC Directive: Appareils destinés à être utilisés en ATmosphères EXplosibles (material suited for usage in explosion hazardous areas).
