What does ATEX stand for?

Antwoord:

ATEX stands for ATmosphères EXplosives. An explosive atmosphere is defined as following: a mixture of flammable substances in the form of gases, vapour, mists or dust under atmospheric conditions, in which the combustion will spread to the entire mixture after ignition.

Since July 2003 ATEX 95 and ATEX 137 are introduced. These guidelines are written specifically to focus on safety in explosive environments and to set legal obligations to the use of explosive-proof products in these hazardous environments.
