Ex series

In many industrial areas, gases, vapours, mists or dusts are produced or escape during the manufacture, processing, transport and storage of flammable substances. In combination with oxygen, an explosive atmosphere can develop. If this ignites, an explosion occurs, which can cause serious personal injury and property damage.

Typical sectors include the chemical and petrochemical industry, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas production, mining, but also the food industry, the biofuel industry and the wastewater sector. ELDRO® units in explosion-proof design are ideal for these applications. They comply with all current regulations and standards and offer a wide range of applications.

Potentially explosive area

I M2 (mining)
II 2G for zone 1 and 2 (above ground)
II 2D for zone 21 and 22 (above ground) 

Certificate of conformity

ATEX - BVS 05 ATEX E 074 X
IECEx - IECEx BVS 12.0014X
TP TC - RU C-DE.ГБ04.В.00477
