ATEX Vacuum Cleaning System

ATEX certified industrial vacuum cleaners are developed for use in explosive atmospheres where combustible dust such as sugar, starch, flour, wood, resins, plastics, textiles, lightweight metals, and paper have the potential to ignite.

The ATEX directive contains two EU and UK orders on the minimum health and safety requirements for equipment designed for use in explosive atmospheres. Without the right equipment, explosive and hazardous materials could ignite. That’s why workplaces should invest in ATEX vacuum cleaning systems to ensure peace of mind for staff and cleaning operators. 

However, it’s not only dust that creates potentially explosive environments, but gas vapours and mists are also all combustible hazards. This is why any industrial workplace should invest in ATEX vacuum cleaners. These electric and compressed air driven systems ensure operator safety while being easy to use and highly effective at cleaning environments featuring an explosive atmosphere.


The Benefits Of Investing In An ATEX Cleaning System

Clean Within Explosive Atmospheres 

A high concentration of combustible substances mixed with the air leads to the risk of explosion if exposed to a source of ignition. Using ATEX tools and vacuums regularly prevents a build-up of hazardous materials that contribute to an explosive atmosphere.


Safely Clean Out Of Reach Areas 

Within an industrial workplace is high-level areas that can be extremely difficult to clean. ATEX cleaning systems are a safe alternative to other high-reach cleaning tools. They allow operators to clean previously out of reach areas safely as the system reaches 16 metres off the ground without any expensive accessories.


Cost-Effective Cleaning Solution 

ATEX vacuum cleaning systems are an affordable solution that benefits a wide range of industries.
