In all areas where explosive atmospheres occur, special safety guidelines are effective which prescribe the use of specially tested components. Within the EU, the ATEX directive, which determines the safe operation of plants and systems in potentially explosive atmospheres, is effective for this purpose.

Other countries and continents have different safety guidelines in this area (IECEx, TR-TS, NEC etc.) - often these are derivatives of European ATEX legislation.

ROSE Ex enclosures made of aluminum, polyester and stainless steel, as well as Control Stations, provide reliable protection for electrical distribution systems in hazardous areas. The products are used for gas explosion protection in zones 1 and 2 and for dust explosion protection in zones 21 and 22:

  • Ex e increased safety
  • Ex ia Intrinsic safety
  • Ex db Flameproof enclosure
  • Ex tb Protection through enclosures

 

Typical areas of application are:

  • Chemical and petrochemical industry
  • Process industry
  • Paint processing industry
  • Mining
  • Silos
