Ensure you have the right equipment for Ex zones
Explosion protection is an essential part of industrial safety technology. It is designed to prevent electrical equipment from igniting flammable substances in potentially explosive areas, thus preventing damage to people and operating facilities as far as possible.
The Ex zone must be classified in order to select the correct explosion-protected weighing electronics, load cells and weighing platforms. Which is the correct explosion protection class? In which countries are ATEX, CSA or IECEx certifications recognised? How do the zones differ from one another? The White Paper covers global directives and requirements and provides configuration examples for selecting explosion-protection equipment and using weighing solutions in hazardous areas.
The subject of weighing in hazardous areas is relevant in any environment where there are gases, dust or lint, or in underground locations, as all these factors increase the risk of explosion. Such environments include the food, chemical, pharmaceutical, building materials and mining industries.
