Information about ATEX certification
The compressed air stirrers from Buddeberg GmbH are explosion-protected according to the current ATEX regulation and are assigned to device categories II, zone 1 and 2
(gas atmosphere G) or zone 21 and 22 (atmosphere GD).
Compressed air laboratory mixers of device category II include the explosion subgroups IIA, IIB and IIC, and can thus be used for mixing work in these areas.
|Equipment for use in potentially explosive atmosphere containing gases, vapours, mists or dusts|
|High level of protection|
|G||For gas atmospheres||A place in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air or flammable substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally.|
|GD||For gas and dust atmospheres||A place in which an explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in air is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally.|
|c||Constructive safety||Protection class for non-electric equipment.|
|T4/T5||Temperatur class||Maximum permitted surface temperature of the used appliances in accordance with EN 13463-1|
Permitted ambient temperature in a potentially explosive atmosphere is -20°C to +40°C.
Important information for operating the stirrers in potentially explosive atmospheres
Chucks are not to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres!
As an alternative, we offer a large selection of connection couplings in our accessory range for the connection between motor and stirring shaft.
Use of the stirrers in potentially explosive atmospheres must be decided on the spot, depending on the local operating conditions.
