ATEX – suitable side channel blowers from SKVTechnik (http://seitenkanalverdichter-technik.de/)

What does ATEX mean?
ATEX is a French abbreviation of ATmospheres EXplosibles and means explosive atmosphere. It indicates a source of danger. In the context of side channel blowers, the imprint means that these devices are suitable for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and for pumping explosive gases. These side channel blowers are specially equipped and protected against explosions in a defined manner.
ATEX is actually an abbreviation for the EU ATEX directives. There are two guidelines that reference ATEX. This is the ATEX product directive and the ATEX company policy. The guidelines have been harmonized by the European Union, in means: adapted to the specificities of the participating countries. This considerably simplifies intra-European trade in these products.

The product directive deals with the placing on the market with ATEX – relevant devices and protective systems. But the main purpose of the product directive is to protect people who work in hazardous areas or who may be affected by explosions. The product directive has been in force since 2003.
