Why The Wrong Fan Can Drastically Impact Production Output?

When dealing with an explosive atmosphere, buying an off-the-shelf fan could prove to be a costly mistake.

Unless the fan and motors are designed and manufactured to ATEX standards, they might cause a gas, vapour, or dust ignition under certain operating conditions, putting operators and production at risk.

Fans destined to the offshore and onshore oil and gas rigs, chemical plants, production platforms must withstand a corrosive environment. Otherwise, their failure can prove costly – downtime, more process stoppages, slower production.

Self-certified ATEX fans could leave you vulnerable to personal injury litigation if employees have an accident.
