At DENIOS you will find an expansive product range covering all aspects of explosion protection. This includes over 2,000 articles for use in Ex areas, with which you can cover all 3 levels of explosion protection measures.
These include, for example, solutions for the detection of hazardous substances to prevent the formation of explosive atmospheres and explosion-protected products that prevent effective ignition sources in your Ex zone. If, according to your ATEX assessment, neither an explosive atmosphere can be prevented nor the complete avoidance of ignition sources can be realised, we will equip your hazardous materials warehouse with pressure relief flaps which limit explosions to a harmless level.
Air technology solutions from DENIOS not only enable compliance with the prescribed workplace limits, highly effective ventilation also removes explosive emissions quickly and thoroughly.
Hazardous substance workstations
DENIOS hazardous substance workstations are available as explosion-protected versions for Ex zones 1 and 2. Here they offer the user maximum safety. The installation of electrical equipment in accordance with Directive 2014/34/EU for use in explosion-protected areas effectively reduces potential hazards.
SpillGuard® hazardous substance leak warning system
If flammable liquids leak out, an explosive atmosphere can quickly develop. To ensure that you are warned immediately in the event of an emergency, we recommend the use of the SpillGuard® hazardous substance leak warning system in the drip pan: for at least 24 hours, this triggers an acoustic and visual signal in the event of a leak.
Ventilation for your hazardous materials warehouse
To counteract the development of explosive gas concentrations when storing flammable liquids, DENIOS hazardous materials storage facilities are equipped with natural or technical ventilation. Ventilation takes place near the floor and can be supplemented by exhaust air monitoring.
The use of electrical and non-electrical equipment creates potential sources of ignition that can have serious consequences if they come into contact with an explosive atmosphere. By using explosion-protected equipment, you make an important contribution to daily explosion protection in your company and to the safety of your employees.
When filling or transfering flammable substances, it must be taken into account that dangerous charges can arise from the flow of the liquid alone. The danger of static charging increases with the flow or pouring speed of the medium. This applies, for example, when pouring into a funnel. With the help of earthing cables, users avoid explosion hazards due to electrostatic charging.
Ignition sparks can be caused when using commercially available steel tools, for example by hitting or dropping the tool on the floor. Non-sparking tools for hazardous areas are made of special copper-based alloys and are softer than conventional tools, minimising the risk of sparking. They are certified for use in areas where sparks are a potential explosion hazard.
Hand pumps are the classic solution for filling and transferring from drums. Our products ensure safe pumping, even in hazardous areas. Our hand pumps for are DEKRA-tested and can be earthed with separately available earthing cables or anti-static sets.
Our electric pumps for hazardous areas have motors that are designed to ensure the units can be operated safely. Non-electrical components are designed in such a way that hot surfaces, for example, are also avoided as ignition sources. To dissipate static electricity, they are already supplied including potential equalisation cable.
Compressed air pumps used in hazardous areas must comply with strict safety guidelines. DENIOS compressed air pumps are equipped with a wide range of features and are approved according to ATEX and IEC EX.
Whether for stirring, homogenising or dissolving: Mixers and agitators reliably keep liquids moving. For mixing flammable liquids, we offer you agitators that meet the requirements of the ATEX directive.
Explosion protection for your technical room system
The necessary components for the safety equipment of your technical room system are derived from your operational, legal and insurance requirements. Based on your ATEX assessment and a needs analysis related to your specific requirements, we work with you to agree on the most appropriate explosion-protected safety equipment.
If your ATEX assessment indicates an Ex zone, we offer you fittings that mitigate a potential spark source in the Ex zone in the appropriate Ex design. Optional earthing devices are available for potential equalisation. These include earthing bars for earthing equipment inside the room system as well as earthing lugs for connection outside on the customer side.
Our explosion-protected heating jackets for drums, IBCs and gas cylinders are a perfect solution for the flexible heating of individual containers. These are particularly useful if the containers need to be mobile.
Industrial torches and headlamps provide better visibiliy, for example during inspections or maintenance work. Powerful and robust, they are ideal for mobile use. Here we offer you approved products for all Ex zones.
Products that do not have their own potential source of ignition that can become an effective source of ignition do not fall under the ATEX directive and can thus be used in Ex areas even without labelling. This also includes our steel spill pallets and trays. Electrostatic charges can be prevented by effective earthing.
We offer a wide selection of small container trays made of steel for the storage of smaller quantities of flammable liquids. Compact in dimensions and easy to handle, DENIOS small container trays come as stationary individual trays or as transport units on Euro pallets.
Pressure relief surfaces for your technical room system
Pressure relief areas can be installed in the roof area of your technical room system providing active safety in the event of an explosion. Controlled pressure equalisation prevents dire scenarios such as the destruction of the room, the endangering of staff through doors tearing open or energy being released in an uncontrolled manner. After the pressure wave has dissipated, the pressure relief device closes automatically and seals the room system. Fire protection properties remain intact.
We also offer a comprehensive range of identification signs for marking potentially explosive areas. This shows employees at a glance in which work areas there is a risk of explosion and they must take special care.
Floor markings play an important role for safety in hazardous areas. With the self-adhesive markings the Ex zones can also be visually divided and make hazardous areas visible to employees. Our floor markings for hazardous areas are available either with a neutral inscription "Ex-Zone" or printed with specific information (e.g. "Ex-Zone 22").
Fire-rated cabinets for ATEX zones - What do I need to know
Within DSEAR, an explosive atmosphere is defined as a mixture of dangerous substances with air, under atmospheric conditions, in the form of gases, vapours, mist or dust in which, after ignition has occurred, combustion spreads to the entire unburned mixture. You need to carry out a risk assessment to determine if your storage cabinet needs to be zoned as a hazardous area. Where there are flammable vapours present any electrical equipment that is installed needs to be ATEX rated.
Explosion protection can quickly become an issue in all industries: Many hazardous substances that are handled on a daily basis harbour a corresponding hazard potential. Here you can find out what you need to know to get started with explosion protection.
At DENIOS you will find a product range covering all aspects of explosion protection that offers olutions for all your needs. This includes over 2,000 articles for use in Ex areas, with which you can cover all 3 levels of explosion protection measures. Here's an overview!
Electrostatic discharge is a well-known everyday phenomenon in many industrial processes. Unfortunately also a dangerous one, because electrostatic discharges can cause explosions. But how can electrostatic charges be effectively avoided in hazardous areas? And which safety product is ultimately the right one? With our practical guide "Earthing systems", we'll get you up to speed on earthing in no time.
