In recent years have dust explosions led to loss of lives and devastated a number of production sites around the world. Partly this is due to new combustible composite materials used in manufacturing, but the majority resides though from totally normal old fashioned material like flour, sugar etc. Dustcontrol has been operating in the field of environmental equipment for more than 40 years and has extensive experience in equipment and systems for potentially explosive dust.
Keeping the work environment clean and safe minimizes the risk of explosion, maximizes your production up-time, increases your products´ quality and gives significant cost savings.
The S 11000 / S 21000 / S 34000 EX (in the picture) are the new generation high vacuum dust collectors for potentially combustible dust. These units comply with the ATEX directive.
S 11000/S 21000/S 34000 EX have been created in order to meet various extraction requirements and to meet the challenges and rapid changes presented to modern industry. The systems are all marked with the EX symbol and are category 3D equipment according to directive 94/9/EC. This means that models with the EX symbol may be placed in areas classified as zone 22 according to directive 1999/92/EC.
