ATEX Risk

Classification of Areas with Atex Risk

Inside GT Engineering, we have a team of technicians specialised in the classification of Areas where explosive Gas or Dust Athmospheres may be generated. 
The Methodology we use complies with the standards harmonised with the Directive 99/92/EC.
Most recurring customers are from the Steel Mills, Chemical Industries and Wood Machine Manufacturers.
We also support our customers with laboratory dust analysis and component selection according to the EN 60079-xx serie standards, harmonised to the new 2014/34/UE Directive.
