Explosion Prevention

Hydraulic Cylinders according ATEX 2014/34/EU

In many sectors of industry it is possible, that explosive atmosphere is generated during the manufacturing process of specific products.

The Final product as well as upcoming side products may mix up with surrounding air and with that generate such an explosive atmosphere.If there is such a mixture of gas or dust combined with air, a little amount of energy suffices to trigger this mixture. This may happen due to e.g. heat or sparkling. The result may be a huge explosion with fatal consequences.
