EU-directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX)
Within the context of the first “ATEX-directive” 94/9/EC every component, which is used in gas or dust explosive areas, has to correspond to the demands of the directive since July 01, 2003.
Independent if this is an electrical or mechanical component. The second, new “ATEX-directive” 2014/34/EU is valid since April 20, 2016 and from that date it is only allowed to place products on the market under the new directive with EU declaration of conformity.
We offer our machines and installations for the most different fields of application in hazardous areas, have implemented all inspections and approvals necessary for this and can present corresponding certificates and design examinations.
All KREIS-DISSOLVER®s, KREIS-BASKET-MILL®s and KREIS-DISSOLVER®-BUTTERFLY are manufactured in accordance with the new ATEX directive (2014/34/EU).
The ATEX directive (2014/34/EU) distinguishes the place of installation in categories / zones:
- zone 2 (category 3)
- zone 1 (category 2)
- zone 0 (category 1)
Our QA system has been approved by the TÜV NORD CERT GmbH Hanover (RL 94/9/EG appendix IV). Thus we are authorised to manufacture our machines in series even for the zone 0 (category 1) in the container interior.
