The chemicals industry

The chemicals industry makes products or substances which are needed in other branches of industry for further processing, in the plastics and foodstuffs industries, for example, and also in automotive, mechanical and plant engineering. Natural feed materials are converted to synthetic substances in this process.

When electrical components are used in chemical-industry machinery and facilities, they must, on the one hand, be protected against contact with aggressive fluids while, on the other hand, explosible particulates and/or gases are frequently generated in chemical processes. Many chemical products involve a high risk of fire. Some are readily ignitable, or extremely sensitive to mechanical stressing. This is why the subject of Ex safety is especially important in this industry.

Hot surfaces, electrical sparks and arcs, and also electrostatic discharges, are all potential ignition sources which must be prevented or contained with certainty in explosion-endangered atmospheres.

Solution:

ROSE Systemtechnik supplies for the chemicals industry a range of stainless-steel Ex enclosures, Ex supporting-arm systems and Ex Commanders. Electrical distribution systems, structural parts, components and small electrical equipment can thus be contained with safety. We can, on request, also cut our products to meet your needs precisely.
