    Requirements

    Lift Safe vacuum systems and accessories approved for ATEX use are manufactured in stainless steel and are connected with ground/earth wires to make sure no static electricity can create an ignition. Contact us and get expert advice for your specific ATEX requirements.

    • Complete solutions for ATEX zone 1 & 21 and zone 2 & 22
    • ATEX specific vacuum pumps or ejector pumps
    • Lift systems handling various loads up to 135 kg
    • ATEX adapted jib cranes and crane systems
    • High speed lifting equipment
    • Standard, fixed and flex handles for optimal ergonomics

    The explosive atmosphere in form of dust or gas surrounding the object to be lifted will be sucked into the vacuum system through tubes, filter and pump. It’s important to carefully plan the selection and placement of each component and have in mind that every component will be affected, even though it might not be within the ATEX zone.

    The placement of the vacuum pump is more significant for an ATEX vacuum system than for a normal vacuum system. This is because the pump is blowing out the air and explosive atmosphere is pulled in at the suction cup. Placing the pump outside of the ATEX zone or in another room might be a good option for reducing noise or save space in a limited area. However, placing the pump outside of the ATEX zone does not remove or reduce the need for an ATEX certified pump for the correct zone. The explosive atmosphere will still travel through the inside of the pump, therefore the pump is required to be protected from ignition risk and approved for a certain temperature.

    Zone 1 & 21 has higher requirements than zone 2 & 22 and there are a few options we can offer

    Zone 1 and 21
    The vacuum lifter and its accessories approved for ATEX use are manufactured in stainless steel and are connected with ground/earth wires to make sure no static electricity can create an ignition. The lifting unit and accessories are therefore rated for zone 1 & 21 and all lower rated zone.

    The only pump option available for zone 1 and 21 is the compressed air driven ejector. There are no moving parts in the ejector and is therefore no risk of ignition or heat generation. This makes it a viable option for zone 1 or 21. We can also provide a variety of different crane solutions manufactured in stainless steel and approved for ATEX use.

    Zone 2 and 22
    All equipment approved for zone 1 and 21 will also be approved for use in ATEX zone with lower rating. Therefore VacuEasylift, accessories, compressed air driven ejector, ATEX approved stainless steel cranes will work for zone 2 and 22.

    In addition to above mentioned equipment, we can provide a variety of electric ATEX pumps for zone 2 or 22, differentiated by GAS or DUST classification.
