The 94/9/CE, now updated with the 2014/34/EU directive, certifies devices used in certain explosive zones. Aim of the directive is to achieve a uniform level of safety and removing barriers to trade. The requirements of the directive have extended the safety level to mechanical devices, taking in consideration the presence of dust in potentially explosive etmosphere. The marking of device has become necessary in order to certificate the products into the classifying zones. Spark, arc, hot surfaces, adiabatic compression. are some of the sources of ignition considered for Vesta Atex produtcion.
Vesta ATEX valves and cylinders satisfy all directives 94/9/EC to avoid mechanical risks of ignition in explosive atmosphere for category II2GD and category II3GD. Design, materials and technical solutions are made to prevent mechanical sparks, electrostatic charges, heating of surfaces due to friction, etc.. All these solutions make Vesta ATEX products in "constructional safety". Use only EPC or XSCN coils on Vesta Atex solenoid valves.
