Explosion-proof diaphragm motor pumps ATEX

Мембранные моторные насосы с взрывозащитой ATEX

In plants in hazardous areas, high-pressure pumps must comply with the ATEX directives.

What is ATEX?

ATEX is an abbreviation for ATmosphères EXplosibles. Explosion protection requirements have been modified within the EC. From 1 July 2003, the European Directive 94/9 /EC on explosion protection is in force. The update of the requirements mainly consists in the fact that now not only electrical components, but the entire pumping unit as a whole are subject to inspection and certification of explosion protection.
