Marstair and Ex-Machinery Sign Partnership

Zwijndrecht, 9 July 2018. Ex-Machinery from the Netherlands and U.K. based Marstair, team up to serve the marine and oil & gas market with entirely new HVAC & refrigeration products.

Product release ATEX zone 1 condenser
The ATEX zone 1 certified Ex-M MCUA Condenser is the first new product release as a result of the
partnership. The purpose of the first order of Ex-M MCUA Condensers is to cool mobile containers in
ATEX zone 1 and 2 hazardous areas.

Increasing demand for ATEX HVAC equipment
As a result of growth in the marine and oil & gas industry and focus on safety and compliance there is an increasing demand for ATEX bespoke HVAC solutions. From July 2003, new equipment intended for use in gas explosive atmospheres must comply with ATEX regulations. By now industrial companies and authorities are very aware of explosion safety risks and demand for ATEX certified equipment.

Reliable performance in the harshest environments
Other key issues in the marine and oil & gas industry are corrosion protection and reliable performance in extreme ambient temperatures. A combination of intelligent explosion protection methods and a condenser with copper tubing and copper fins and stainless steel casing ensures reliable and safe performance, even in the harshest environments. The Ex-M MCUA copper/copper condenser prevents any galvanic corrosion. As a result the technical lifespan is 5 times longer compared to a standard explosion proof condenser. Optional use of R134A refrigerant guarantees a reliable steady cooling performance at high ambient temperatures. This guarantees no shut downs due to excessive heat and no loss of cooling capacity.

“Marstair are thrilled to be working in partnership with Ex-Machinery. Ex-Machinery’s extensive
knowledge and expertise on ATEX and explosion proof equipment combined with Marstair’s ability to
provide bespoke Marine HVAC and refrigeration equipment is a very powerful combination. This
partnership will allow both companies to offer a greater range of solutions to the market and well-aligned
to both companies’ growth strategies within the marine, oil & gas HVAC & refrigeration sectors,” Chris
Chisman, Director of Marstair, Brighouse, United Kingdom.

“Marstair’s 45 years of experience and the dedication of the Marstair team members are valued by us as
an excellent basis for a prosperous cooperation. We are very pleased with this opportunity to take Ex-
Machinery’s portfolio to the next level by providing our customers with ATEX equipment based on the wide
range of Marstair’s bespoke HVAC solutions,” Gido van Tienhoven, Managing Director of Ex-Machinery,
The Netherlands.
