GemmeCotti supplies ATEX pumps for potentially explosive atmospheres. Our EM pumps are suitable to be used in ZONE 1 II2G and ZONE 2 II3G classified areas. All our pumps comply with the technical and safety requirements of ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU
The Directive states that the manufacturers of equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres shall draw up a written declaration of conformity of these products.
HOW ARE THE ATEX ZONES CLASSIFIED?
The term “ZONE 1” indicates an area where an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture of air or flammable substances (gas, vapour or mist) is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally.
The term “ZONE 2” indicates an area where an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture of air and flammable substances (gas, vapour or mist) is not likely to occur in normal operation. If it does occur, it will persist for a short period only.
