ATEX compliant plants

The new ATEX-Directive rules the resposibility and the design of the plant parts.

The operator of the plant is responsible for the allocation of the zone classification.

The lawmaker transferred the responsibility of the EEx-conformity to the owner of the plants by means of the new ATEX-Directive.

However, zone 0 means that all electrical and mechanical / dynamical installations used in the vessel have to be carried out according to ATEX Zone 0.

Zone 0 means that one “notified body“ (PTB, TÜV etc.) must test the use of all installed parts / fittings / agitators / pumps / sensors. These units have to be undergone to a EU-design test, that is that all electrical and mechanical / dynamical parts installed in the vessel must be carried out according to ATEX Zone 0.

Only such units / plants are allowed which have an EU-design test certificate or the evidence has to be provided that there are no ignition sources.

It is not sufficient that the gear motor, e. g. for an agitator, is supplied with an EU-design test certificate.

The evidence has to be brought that neither electric charging nor any ignition sources can come up at rotating parts / seals / agitator / scraper system and that defined flow velocities are kept. This has to be guaranteed with control units which have also to be proved with EU design test.
Thus the whole agitator subassembly has to be undergone an ATEX hazard analysis, such that an EU design test certificate can be issued.

NETZSCH Vakumix performs EU-design test as single test for the following components:

  • Agitator KappaVita
  • Homogenizers / Circulation Agitators LambdaVita
  • Control Equipment for LambdaVita
