We offer a wide range of hazardous area (ATEX) scales and instrumentation for use in Zones 0, 1 & 2 (gases) and 20, 21 & 22 (dusts). These include bench scales and floor scales, with integral and remote weight indicators.
The Weightron PMA-CX and PRM-CX stainless steel floor scales, together with our D440iS ATEX certified weight indicator, are ideal for ATEX applications in harsh environments.
NOTE: Hazardous area installations must be installed by qualified engineers in line with ATEX regulations.
Please contact us for further information and advice.
ATEX is the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres:
- Directive 99/92/EC (also known as ‘ATEX 137’ or the ‘ATEX Workplace Directive’) on minimum requirements for improving the health and safety protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres.
- Directive 94/9/EC (also known as ‘ATEX 95’ or ‘the ATEX Equipment Directive’) on the approximation of the laws of Member States concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
In Great Britain the requirements of Directive 99/92/EC were put into effect through regulations 7 and 11 of the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR).
