Safety is the number one priority when lifting and moving goods in a hazardous area.
What are Explosion Proof lifts
Various certifications throughout the world are required when using equipment in environments that are a hazardous area classification. In Canada, Explosion Proof is what is necessary for safe operations. These work areas where flammable or explosive materials are stored or used are found in a wide range of industries, from chemical to pharmaceutical. Handling materials in these environments requires the highest level of safety engineering.
TAWI is the leader in the industry for explosion proof lifting equipment. Our vacuum lift contains a motor that can be engineered to offer protection in areas classified as hazardous, without forgoing an efficiency, safe and ergonomic workflow.
An environment that is a hazardous area classification demands specifications.
Certain requirements must be met when working with equipment in an area that is classified as hazardous. The motor on a TAWI vacuum lift can be engineered to meet these explosion proof requirements. By placing the explosion proof vacuum’s pump in another room, this will enable the vacuum lift to vent the exhaust into a safe area.
It is crucial to cautiously arrange where the vacuum lift and the motor will be installed at in room with a hazardous area classification.
Engineered to meet ATEX certification.
Around the world, hazardous work environments are classified in other ways, for example by zones. These zones are in accordance to the frequency and duration of the occurrence of explosive atmospheres, and the equipment must be ATEX approved.
Our equipment has been engineered to be ex rated solutions for these hazardous environments. The TAWI VacuMove as well as profiles for our crane systems and jib arms, and our lifting trolleys, can all be modified to be ATEX rated equipment.
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.
A TAWI roll lifter equipped with an electrical coregripper tool will save your business both time and money. This ensures efficient and effortless lifting within your operations, no matter what type or size of rolls you are handling.
