3. ATEX

From 2017 we offer to our clients solutions for protection of equipment from dust explosion (e.g. flour, sugar, grain or other types of explosible dust). There is well-know abbreviation called ATEX which stands for "ATmosphere EXplosible". At the same time, ATEX is known as the European Directive 2014/34/EC that regulates norms for explosion-proof electrical and mechanical equipment, components and protective systems. It came into force on 1 July 2003, and all new equipment and protective systems have been subject to it since that date. In 2018 we delivered several projects in which we supplied, installed and modified equipment with high risks of explosion of dust from flour and sugar. In 2019 we became official partner of RSBP s.r.o. and successfully delivered more projects for protection of equipment from explosion of sugar dust and coal dust. Our engineers are ready to offer most efficient explosion protection with competitive costs from RSBP s.r.o - https://www.rsbp.cz/.
