The ATEX directive 2014/34/EU (also known as ATEX 114) is applicable on products used in explosion hazardous zones. All aluminum and cast iron pumps are by standard ATEX approved and permitted to be used in Zone 1, having model names TX…
The standard stainless steel pumps are not allowed to operate in hazardous environments. Special conductive TX and TZ pumps are available for such applications. All plastic parts utilized in such pumps are made from conductive (carbon filled) materials thus made for use in explosion hazardous environments. What is more ATEX pump are equipped with a grounding connection.
The aluminium and cast iron pumps can be used in Ex-zone 1. Stainless steel pumps can be utilized in Ex-zone 1 and Ex-zone 0.
The conductive material ensures that no electrostatic loads will be accumulated in the pump
