Safety in Filtration
Explosions may occur within applications such as pharmaceutical, chemicals, metal, food, plastics, coal and wood working industries. Solberg was one of the first filtration companies qualified to service these industries in compliance with the ATEX directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX 114). This is a European Union code that seeks to minimize the possibility of explosions related to equipment used in potentially explosive gaseous or dusty environments.
Solberg is registered by the TUV Rheinland Group under Ref‐N 968/Ex‐Ab 557/04. Solberg’s registration allows the design, manufacture and marking of inlet filter silencers, inlet filters, inlet vacuum filters, integrated liquid separators/vacuum filters and air/oil separation filters for non‐mining applications. ATEX certified products undergo a strict testing regime and documentation is available upon request.
Most products are suitable for deployment in Group II Category 2 Gas Zones 1,2 and Group II Category 2 Dust Zones 21, 22 and will be marked in accordance with the directive and the norm 80079‐36 as follows:
For gas: II 2 G Ex h IIB T1…T6 Gb
