One-off Custom ATEX Machinery

In addition to explosion proof HVAC and Wi-Fi devices, Ex-Machinery offers a wide range of ATEX equipment, with the possibility to offer one-off custom ATEX Machinery.

We can modify most regular equipment and machinery into an explosion proof version, suitable for ATEX Zones 2 and 22. Modification of a non-ATEX, state-of-the-art device could be a preferred solution for you. Here are 5 reasons why:

5 Reasons Why Modification Is A Better Option

Cost-effectiveness: often, explosion proof equipment is only available for Zones 1 and 21, which is a needlessly costly solution if your location is classified as Zone 2 or 22. Usually, the conversion of regular equipment is more cost-effective.

Availability: Not all equipment is available on the market to be used in explosion hazardous areas. When an explosion proof drone or explosion proof 3D-scanner is needed, modification of an original device is the only solution.

Usability: Regular equipment is often easier to use and has more features than ATEX equipment. By converting the original, you benefit from the usability and sophisticated design in an explosion proof version.

Standardization: A production facility has both zoned and non-zoned areas. It is likely that both areas need, for example, fire alarms. By converting the standard fire detector for the ATEX zones, the control procedure of the whole system can remain the same.

Knowledge and experience: if introducing a new brand requires much instruction and knowledge from your operators and maintenance people, conversion is the better option. Your staff will only need additional instruction.

ATEX modification; The Process

The conversion process of the original product to an ATEX explosion proof product consists of 4 steps.

Process StepActivityOutput

Step 1

Receiving the original device (CE marked) and available technical data. 

Step 2

Complete assessment of all parts of ATEX directives. (ignition analyses and selection of applicable protection method)
  1. Ignition analyses
  2. Test results according to general standards for explosion safety EN 60079-0
  3. Selection of applicable ATEX protection method

Step 3

Technical modification: e.g., application of impact protection, replacement of sparking components, Full assessment of modified device by an IECEX-certified person
  1. Unit Assessment Certificate
  2. Installation manual for hazardous areas
  3. User manual for hazardous areas

Step 4

Shipment to clientATEX modified device ready for use in ATEX zone, maintaining the features of the original equipment
