ATEX Weighing Equipment

We supply a wide range of ATEX (ATmosphere EXplosive) approved weighing equipment and accessories for use in hazardous environments, such as those with high risk of explosive and flammable liquids and gases. ATEX weighing equipment is primarily used in the chemical and petroleum industries where intrinsically safe weighing scales are specially designed for hazardous and corrosive environments.

Under the ATEX regulations, hazardous areas are divided into various zones relating to the chances of an explosive atmosphere existing. Equipment is divided into groups – I for the mining industry and II non mining, into Categories 1, 2 and 3 for flammable gasses and zones 20, 21 and 22 for dusts. The Categories accommodate respectively, very high, high and normal levels of protection against combustion.

Users must make sure that any hazardous areas in their premises are suitably identified and classified accordingly. Weighing scales and other equipment for use in these areas must be selected and installed in stringent accordance with statutory legislation.

We supply both 2GD for zones 1, 21, 2 & 22 and 3GD for Zones 2 & 22. All ATEX equipment we supply is certified and approved. Please contact one of our experienced team, who will be happy to help with advice or information on any of our ATEX approved floor scales, platform scales, weight indicators, load cells or crane scales.
