ATEX fans are used when operation is planned in areas at risk of explosion.

Do you require explosion protection?

In more and more application areas, protecting blowers against explosions is an indispensable prerequisite. Numerous dusts and gases that are being conveyed are already in a highly explosive original state, while others develop this characteristic after being pre-mixed with additional media. Just a little spark can have unforeseeable and disastrous consequences. Our ATEX blowers are designed precisely for such highly sensitive conditions.

Aside from many other application areas, our ATEX blowers are in use in the chemical industry, in mills, biogas plants, landfills, sewage plants, flour storage facilities as well as food processing. They ensure the safe transport of explosive dusts and gases of all kinds.
