ATEX Enclosures for Hazardous Areas
What is ATEX?
ATEX is a term commonly used in potentially explosive atmospheres. An explosive atmosphere is defined as a mixture of flammable substances in the form of gas, vapour or dust which, if exposed to a source of ignition, can catch fire in the form of an explosion.
Since 2003 the European directive makes compulsory to use ATEX certified enclosures and equipment in potentially explosive areas.
This is in line with the dangerous substances and explosive atmospheres regulations (DSEAR) 2002.
