According to ATEX Product Directive (2014/34/EU), equipment and protective systems to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres must fulfil the required safety level.
This implies that they need to be assessed to ensure they will not become ignition sources and protect against the consequence of explosion.
Gexcon can help you with testing for ATEX mechanical equipment:
We have tested pumps, valves, cutting tools, surface treatment equipment, explosion venting panels, flameless venting systems, explosion suppression systems, explosion isolation systems, flame arresters, etc.
