What is ATEX

ATEX

The Directive ATEX is named after the French "ATmospheres EXplosives" and has been mandatory from 1st July 2003.

The Directive covers a surprisingly large range of equipment, potentially including equipment used on fixed offshore platforms, in petrochemical plants, mines, flour mills and other areas where a potentially explosive atmosphere may be present. Areas, classified into zones (see below for specification) are devided into zones 0,1 and 2 for gas/mist and 20, 21 and 22 for dust. To equipment must have (in very broad guidelines): effective source of ignition, be intended for use in a potentially explosive atmosphere (air mixtures); and  be under normal atmospheric conditions.
