ATEX Cargo Pumps

Pumping Fuel or Liquefied Gas? Are you safe?

Explosive atmospheres can be caused by flammable gases, fuels or vapour. If there is enough of the substance, mixed with air, then all it needs is a source of ignition to cause an explosion.

Under the ATEX Directive, areas classified into zones must be protected from sources of ignition. Sources of ignition include both mechanical and electrical equipment. Equipment intended to be used in zoned areas should be selected to meet the requirements.

Blackmer pump models STX, TXD, TXH & LGL, installed to instructions, are in conformity with the provisions of the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC.
