ATEX regulations are related to requirements for dealing with potential explosive atmospheres and have led Elesa to introduce a range of appropriate hydraulic components for use in systems complying with these regulations. This is expected to include many pumps, anti-spark installations, oil and gas, water and sewage and petrochemical plants, as well as mines and flour mills.
In particular, the range includes GN 743.6 oil level indicators, SFP+a-EX breather caps and TN-EX equipment plugs. This new ATEX range of liquid level sight gauges, breather caps, level indicators and plugs are laser engraved and provided with a full instruction/safety leaflet to enable users to correctly incorporate them in systems complying with Health and Safety Requirements according to 94/9/EC ATEX European Directive (explosive atmospheres) for equipment in Group II, category 2GD.
The GN 743.6 aluminium oil level indicators feature ESG safety glass with FKM Viton sealing ring. SFP+a-EX breather caps incorporate a splash guard and flat dipstick, while TN-EX sealing plugs are in glass reinforced technopolymer with NBR synthetic sealing rings.
