TAWI's extensive range of ATEX certified, hazardous environment solutions are specifically designed to improve safety, while minimising downtime and maximising productivity. 

When lifting or moving materials in hazardous environments, safety is essential. The risk of explosion or combustion endangers not just your operations, but your employees as well. TAWI has you covered, with a complete line of lifting solutions for ATEX restricted areas.

 

TAWI’s extensive range of ATEX certified, hazardous environment solutions are specifically designed to improve safety, while minimising downtime and maximising productivity, ensuring safety at every stage if the handling process and in every detail of our products.

 

 

What is an explosive atmosphere? (and who knew that sugar could explode?)

Hazardous workplaces where flammable or combustible substances are stored or used are found in a wide range of industries, from chemical and pharmaceutical operations to milk drying and sugar refinement. Handling materials in these environments requires the highest level of engineering and safety. A TAWI ATEX solution mitigates the risk of explosion without sacrificing efficiency, safety, or ergonomics.

ATEX zones

Hazardous work environments are classified in terms of zones, according to the frequency and duration of the occurrence of explosive atmospheres. TAWI solutions cover Zones 1 and 2 (gas hazardous environments) as well as for Zones 21 and 22 (dust hazardous environments). TAWI supplies a range of ATEX certified products for these areas, with each solution customized to the specific project at hand.

 

 

Specifically engineered to meet ATEX requirements

It is vital that each and every component of a lifting system be approved for explosive environments, even if they are not to be located within the actual hazardous environments itself. To meet these requirements, each component of a TAWI ATEX certified vacuum lifter system is purposely designed, tested, and certified to meet the specific guidelines for reducing the risk of explosion in hazardous environments.

It is important to carefully plan both selection and placement of equipment in explosive environments.

TAWI has modified our already stringently tested solutions to meet ATEX and OSHA requirements* for hazardous handling to guarantee the highest level of protection in explosive environments. All of our TAWI VacuEasylift models, for example, can be modified to meet ATEX regulations and we also supply ATEX-modified profiles for our crane systems and jib arms as well as special lifting trolleys for ATEX environments.

 

* For use in the USA, OSHA requires even ATEX certified equipment to be independently certified by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory.
