What is an ATEX Zone 22 Vacuum Cleaner?

ATEX is an abbreviation/acronym of “ATmosphères EXplosibles” (Explosive Atmospheres). An ATEX vacuum cleaner is a vacuum cleaner which is specifically designed, built and certified for use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres (also known as Hazardous Areas).

Zone 22 Hazardous Areas are working areas endangered by the presence of combustible or conductive dusts that have the potential to be explosive in the presence of oxygen and a source of ignitionZone 22 Hazardous areas are commonly found in the following industries: bakeries, food processing, pharmaceutical, flour and grain mills, plastics & composites, 3D printing, firing ranges, automotive industry, etc.

To prevent explosions from occurring in these sensitive working environments, the European community has adopted two directives concerning Potentially Explosive Atmospheres called ATEX directives. These two directives outline the responsibilities of manufacturers and customers concerning the use of equipment in potentially explosive atmospheres.
