ATEX is the name often used for the European Directive for controlling explosive atmospheres, including combustible dusts such as coal dust or bio-fuels. Part of UK legislation, it means as an employer you must take all necessary measures to ensure worker's health and safety.
All our vacuum machines (for hire or sale) are fitted with explosion relief panels as standard, fully compliant for use with ST1 class combustible dusts. Dust explosions are a risk with most organic products when the dust separates in vacuum skips and hoppers. But with GWS vacuum equipment, you can be sure you’re keeping workers safe and adhering to the latest regulations.
