Since the ATEX Directive 95 came into force appliances in environments that are at risk of explosion all over Europe must be checked according to the provisions of this Directive. This check on appliances is converted into a standardised marking and is normally certified by a testing centre.
The appliance is tested by examining the individual components it contains in relation to the application-related risk.
In particular the clutch and brake components must be examined in detail because of the heat produced by friction. Here Ortlinghaus offers professional support for its products when selecting suitable components and in assessing the individual applications with regard to the conditions required.
Obviously the delivery schedule includes special ATEX product information, a design sheet, a conformity declaration and, if required, an ignition risk analysis.
