About Explosion Proof Air Conditioners
Ex-Machinery offers a wide range of ATEX certified explosion proof air conditioners. All models are equipped with refrigerant R-410A, for optimal performance and energy-efficiency.
We modify leading brands such as Mitsubishi, Carrier and Daikin, so you can work safe in ATEX classified zones. We have an extended range of advanced models, capacities and special features available, for example a redundant system.
The following article explains everything about the various ATEX air conditioners we offer. You may also request your quotation directly, or view the products on your right.
Air Conditioners certified for ATEX zones 2 and 22
In order to guarantee safety, all our explosion proof air conditioner units are delivered with an ATEX certificate and ATEX marking. The ATEX certificate proves that the explosion proof HVAC equipment is in compliance with the ATEX directive. Compliance is based on the following harmonised standards: EN 60079-0, EN 60079-15, EN 60079-11. All equipment is assessed and modified to comply with these ATEX standards.
3D and 3G; ATEX marking
ATEX certification for zone 2 is marked as 3G (gas explosive atmospheres). ATEX certification for zone 22 is marked as 3D (dust explosive atmospheres). Read more on the relationship between ATEX zones and required equipment in our blog.
Is ATEX certification applicable in my country?
ATEX certified explosion proof HVAC is always accepted in Europe, the Middle East, Africa (an additional unit certificate is required in South Africa) and in the Far East. Additional certification may be required in other countries.
Do I need an explosion proof indoor and outdoor A/C unit?
Depending on your situation you might not need both the indoor and outdoor unit to be ATEX certified. Please specify if the indoor, outdoor or both A/C units need to be ATEX certified. Our explosion proof air conditioners come in complete sets unless requested otherwise.
Various models up to 14kW (48,000 BTU/h)
We offer single split, multi split and window air conditioners to be used for cooling, but also for heating purposes in ATEX classified areas.
|Multi Split AC
||1.5 - 14
||5,100 - 47,700||From 2 up to 8 indoor units per outdoor unit.|
|Single Split AC
||2.5 - 25
||8,530 - 85,300|
||2.8 - 3.7
||9,550 - 12,600||Nominal chilling power of 2.8 - 3.7|
Did you know that using an air conditioner for heating purposes safes a substantial amount of energy compared to using an electrical industrial heater? A 2 kW air conditioner releases the same heat as an 7.5 kW electrical heater.
To suit your specific requirements you may choose from any of the explosion proof air conditioners on your right.

What is the price of an explosion proof air conditioner?
What does an explosion proof AC unit cost? The price of an ATEX certified air conditioner is made up around the following factors:
- The classified hazardous area
- Whether both the indoor and outdoor unit need to be explosion proof, or not.
- The required type and model
- Explosion protection in dust explosive atmospheres requires a more complex technical modification than in gas explosive atmospheres. Thus, it is more expensive.
- The cooling/heating capacity
- Any optional special solutions, e.g. a redundant system
