....did you know? a potentially explosive atmosphere is composed by air mixtures of gases, vapors, mists or dusts, which can ignite under certain operating conditions.
Equipment and machineries intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres cover a quite large range of products, including items used in petrochemical plants, mines, flour mills and other areas where a potentially explosive atmosphere may be present.
In parallel to the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC, the Directive 1999/92/EC deals with the minimum requirements for improving the safety and health protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres.
Growing inquiries for classified materials and/or hazardous environment leads B.L. Mediterraneo s.r.l. to develop – upon request - its machineries in compliance with such ATEX directive.
A skilled team of expertise joins each Customer to analyze and define the working area classification based on materials to be bagged and surrounding environment.
In cooperation with one of the most important European EPC, B.L. Mediterraneo s.r.l. has just delivered one bagging line in compliance with ATEX II 3D Ex tD A22 - IIIC Dc IP65 -T4 ( Tmax = 135 °C ), to bag SBS synthetic rubber in Mainland China.
