Couplings for ATEX applications in potentially explosive environments
The applications can often be quite unique and demanding. According to the ATEX directive 2014/34/EU, components such as coupling that are used in explosive environments need to be tested for these specific operating conditions. For this reason, R+W completes on-site testing and ATEX certifications for many couplings from its product portfolio.
Many types of customers can be supported with these special certified couplings. For example, a manufacturer of dispersing machines can use ATEX couplings in the production of suspensions and emulsions. The machinery is in constant contact with dust and powders that have a very low ignition point, making this a perfect application for an electrically conductive elastomer insert that eliminates the possibility of a discharge between the coupling hubs.
