What does ATEX mean
The acronym “ATEX” is the acronym for “ATmosphereEXplosive“, or potentially explosive atmosphere.
A potentially explosive atmosphere is defined as a mixture of flammable substances in the form of gases, vapors, mists or dusts.
GROUPS AND CATEGORIES
The ATEX directive 2014/34 / EU divides the products into two groups (group I and group II), the first of which includes equipment intended for mines and the second all the others.
In turn, within the groups, the products are divided into categories according to the level of protection guaranteed against the risk of ignition of the potentially explosive atmosphere.
In particular, the CEI EN 60079-0 standard defines, in accordance with the nature of the explosive atmosphere due to the presence of gas (for group II) or dust (for group III) for which they are intended.
