All equipment installed in an explosive atmosphere (gas and/or dust) must comply with the current ATEX 94/9/EC directive.
The definition of ATEX zones (0, 1 and 2 for gases and vapours, 20, 21 and 22 for dust) is performed by the company using the agitator.
Mixel is the only French agitator manufacturer audited and holding EN/NF 13980 certification (No. 4000036/B).
The steps for complying with and obtaining ATEX certification are as follows:
- Audit and ensure compliance on the customer’s site prior to any action
- Ensure compliance of existing agitators from all manufacturers
- Inspection visits / certification verification checks performed by Mixel
