Static electricty is a concern, espically when handling combustible materials such as bio-fuels, coal dust etc.
All our GWS vacuum equipment can be supplied with fully compliant explosion relief for ATEX compliance. The equipment is usually positioned outside (which is unlikely to be DSEAR zoned for dust explosions) and it is only the hose which runs into the zoned area.
As product is vacuumned there is a potential for static electricty to be generated. For use in hazardous Zone 21 or Zone 22 areas, GWS provide users with anti-static PVC vacuum conveying hoses. GWS check the end-to-end resistance of each length of hose and provide a test certificate for each hose assembly.
