The Greenwood Rotary Magnet has been approved for certification for use in areas zoned to ATEX 21. The magnet can be used both inside and outside
Historically, ATEX certification has been associated with safety in explosive environments created by gases and vapours. More recently, increased focus is being placed on ATEX Zones 20, 21 and 22 relating to explosive environments created by dust and powders. These are areas where magnetic separators are commonly operating.
Following recent developments by our design team, the Greenwood Rotary Magnet has been approved for certification for use both inside and outside in environments zoned to ATEX 21.
ATEX 21 covers zones where an explosive mixture of dust/powder is likely to occur in normal operation.
Safety is a key consideration in all our design work so we are naturally pleased to have achieved this approval.
