Heat generated by equipment may cause gases and flammable materials to ignite or explode.
Therefore, its necessary to reduce the temperature of ATEX EX equipment to less than the specified value for operation in a potentially explosive atmosphere and to prevent any sparking from occurring.
Miretti Group’s ATEX EX Equipment has protection controls for motor surface temperature, fluid temperatures and brake temperatures.
Explosion Proof Enclosures
Explosion Proof Enclosures protect all cabling, wiring, valves and electrical components, ignition system, and battery. An Explosion Proof Enclosure is a case or housing that has been tested and approved to contain electrical components or apparatus.
Although the joints of Explosion Proof enclosures will permit the entry of explosive vapours, the strength of the enclosures must contain any internal explosion.
The enclosures of Miretti Group’s ATEX EX Equipment have been hydrostatically tested for internal explosive resistance to pressures in excess of requirements without failure.
