Description

The term “explosive atmosphere” (ATEX) refers to an environment, in general under atmospheric conditions, where a mix is
generated of flammable or combustible substances suspended in the air as a gas, vapours, mist, fumes or dust in which,
after the triggering event, combustion propagates throughout
the entire mixture.
It is often assumed that explosive atmospheres are formed
only with intrinsically dangerous products, such as fuels or
solvents. However, what are apparently harmless products,
such as wood dust, flour, sugar and granules, may also form
explosive atmospheres and cause unexpected accidents.
These types of mixes are present in various industrial fields,
from the agriculture and food sector, to the textile, wood and
pharmaceuticals industries.
The new series of I.S.G.E.V. motors have been designed to
operate in silos or in other places where products that release
flammable dust are stored. Compliant with the basic safety
specifications outlined in the ATEX directive 94/9/CE, they
can also be used in environments where dust may create
explosive atmospheres.
