project ATEX 94/9/EG

In January 1999 a project had been set up to extend the range of zone-0 fans and to receive the ATEX certificate

in March 1999 the order of Sanofi Synthélabo (France) for 6 fans intensified our efforts

the required new size had been incorporated into our project

we took the necessary steps to receive the ATEX certificate

ATEX


sanofi 1999

Sanofi Synthélabo (F)

  • transport of solvent vapours

  • 1500 Nm³/h

  • system ER10

  • up to today 20 units installed at this customer

ATEX 100 - ATEX 137

99/92/EC (ATEX 137) is intended to complement the previously published 94/9/EC (ATEX 100a). These two directives cover different areas and are intended to achieve different objectives. Responsibilities and duties are shared between the manufacturer and user (employer).1999/92/EC (ATEX 137)

  • Covers health and safety protection of workers

  • Duties are placed on the employer

  • Intended to ensure that workers enjoy a minimum level of protection throughout all member states

    1994/9/EC (ATEX 100a)

  • Covers products intended for use in hazardous areas

  • Duties are placed on the manufacturer/supplier of the product

  • Intended to facilitate the free movement of goods within the EU

    Both ATEX 137 and ATEX 100a became mandatory on 1st July 2003. and set out the minimum requirements. Member states are free to introduce more stringent measures if they wish.

ATEX


directive for manufacturersATEX 100

After 30 June 2003 products may be placed on the market in the EU territory, freely moved and operated as designed and intended in the expected environment only if they comply with directive 94/9/EC.

Directive 94/9/EC provides Essential Health and Safety Requirements (EHSRs, listed at Annex II) for

  • non-electrical equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and

  • equipment intended for use in environments which are potentially explosive due to dust hazards and

  • protective systems and for devices intended for use outside explosive atmospheres which are required for or contribute to the safe functioning of equipment or protective systems with respect to risks of explosion.

ATEX


group and category

Group I comprises equipment intended for use in the underground parts of mines, and to those parts of surface installations of such mines, likely to become endangered by firedamp and/or combustible dust

Group II comprises equipment intended for use in other places likely to become endangered by explosive atmospheres

Our range of product come normally in application covered with this group, sub-divided into 6 categories

ATEX


category 1G (for zone 0)

Cat. 1G comprises products designed to be capable of remaining in areas in which explosive atmospheres caused by mixtures of air and gases, vapours, mists or air/dusts mixtures are highly likely to occur and are present continuously, for long periods of time or frequently

Equipment of this Category is characterised by integrated explosion protection measures functioning in such a way that:

  • in the event of a failure of one integrated measure, at least a second independent means of protection provides for a sufficient level of safety; or,

  • in the event of two faults occurring independently of each other a sufficient level of safety is ensured.

ATEX


category 2G (for zone 1)

Cat. 2G comprises products designed to be capable of remaining in areas in which explosive atmospheres caused by mixtures of air and gases, vapours, mists or air/dust mixtures are likely to occur

The explosion protection relating to this Category must function in such a way as to provide a sufficient level of safety even in the event of equipment with operating faults or in dangerous operating conditions which normally have to be taken into account.

ATEX


category 3G (for zone 2)

Cat.3G comprises products designed to be capable of remaining in areas in which explosive atmospheres caused by mixtures of air and gases, vapours, mists or air/dust mixtures are less likely to occur and if they do occur, do so infrequently and for a short period of time only.

The design of the products of this category must provide a sufficient level of safety during normal operation.

ATEX


  • There is the same classification for air/dust mixtures

  • Category 1D (for zone 20)

  • Category 2D (for zone 21)

  • Category 3D (for zone 22)

  • Actually, we have a complete range of solution other for the category 1D

category 1G

ATEX


category 1

cat.1 = (permanently explosive medium) requires additional measurements.

Up to today all solutions are limited to gas (cat.1G), since dust (cat.1D) cannot pass the flame arresters.

ATEX


requirements for cat.1G

protection measurements must guarantee

  • in the event of a failure of one integrated measure, at least a second independent means of protection provides for a sufficient level of safety; or,

  • in the event of two faults occurring independently of each other a sufficient level of safety is ensured

    solution:

    explosion resistant design + flame arresters

ATEX


requirements for cat.1G

  • the protective systems must be able to withstand an explosion inside the fan.

  • the protective systems must be arranged in such a way, that any dangerous chain reaction is impossible. Flames or deflagrations inside the fan must not escape and cause detonations outside.

    solution:

    design ER + flame arresters close to the fan

    proof by real explosion tests

ATEX


flame arresters

each new type has been proofed (16x) with the fan by real explosion tests (according to EN 12874) to demonstrate the efficacy of the safety measurements

ATEX


Actuelly concept and design ER

ATEX


size and sensors

  • the design of the fan and the choice of the material is determined by the expected pressure and temperature in case of an explosion or in case of a fire. Also thermal reaction can cause a heating. The fan withstands an explosion shock without reduction of the safety function of the system.

  • the protective devices are equipped with sensors to indicate a fire or abnormal temperature. The sensors are connected with other elements to stop the process and to separate other parts of the installation.

ATEX


operating conditions

Sensors measure the temperature at the inlet flame arresters to detect a fire and at the same time they indicate an abnormal temperature of the medium.

Fans for category 1G are always designed for specificoperating conditions, which are given by

  • speed rate (rotation)

  • operating temperature

  • category of the media

  • pressure

    under no circumstances the fan can be used outside the range of these specifications !

ATEX


risk analysis

  • hazard identificationwhich hazards exist under normal circumstances, which in the case of a fault (EN 1127-1)

  • risk estimationProbability of occurrence of the identified hazards and of the levels of severity of the possible harm of the considered hazards (see as well EN 1050).

  • risk evaluation and reductionComparison and decision, whether the risk is acceptable or not

ATEX


risks EN 1127-1

  • probability and volume of explosive media

    • degree of dispersion and concentration

  • ignition sources

    • hot surfaces, flames
