ATEX Zone Equipment

December 12, 2018
TAWI UK's extensive range of ATEX certified, hazardous environment solutions are specifically designed to maintain safety standards, while minimising downtime and maximising productivity. 

When transporting or handling materials in hazardous environments, we recognise that safety is key. ATEX restricted zones carry dangers both for business operations and the employees working within them. And that’s why TAWI UK supply a complete range of ATEX approved solutions.

Our ATEX rated equipment is specifically designed to maintain the high safety standards relevant to this environment whilst maximising the productivity levels and minimising the downtime. Each of our products are designed with these details in mind every step of the way.

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 UK 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 UK solutions cover Zones 1 and 2 (gas hazardous environments) as well as Zones 21 and 22 (dust hazardous environments). TAWI supplies a range of ATEX approved products for these areas, with each solution customised to the each specific situation

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

TAWI UK has modified our already stringently tested solutions to meet ATEX environments 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 approved profiles for our crane systems and jib arms as well as special lifting trolleys for ATEX environments.
