Sunfab offers ATEX classification of standard pumps and motors (March 2013)

24 March, 2013

Sunfab can now offer ATEX classification of its standard ranges of pumps (SCP) and motors (SCM). The products satisfy the requirements defined in accordance with ATEX Directive 94/9/EC on non-electrical equipment.

ATEX is an EU directive that deals with equipment in environments where there is a risk of potentially explosive compounds. ATEX is an abbreviation of the French name of the directive, Appareils destinés à être utilisés en ATmosphères EXplosibles. In accordance with ATEX, an investigation is conducted into the risk that the pump or motor constitutes a source of ignition in a potentially explosive environment.
High protection level
“ATEX differentiates between whether the equipment is to be used in a mine/quarry (group I) or in another explosive environment, e.g. oil platforms and filling stations (Group II),” explained Erika Berg, design & quality manager at Sunfab. “Each group then contains various categories that specify the level of safety. Sunfab’s standard ranges of pumps and motors have been classified with a high protection level in both Groups I and II. The products have a high protection level in environments containing potentially explosive gas and dust.”
When placing an order, customers specify whether they want to buy an ATEX-classified pump or motor. The product will then be delivered labelled with ATEX classification and with an ATEX certificate attached.
