ATEX Certified Vacuums

What is an ATEX certified vacuum?

ATEX approved vacuum cleaners are for use in atmospheres that are potentially explosive. For example environments where fine dusts such as flour are created, or where sugar, fine plastic powder, light metal powder and textiles are used.


What is an explosive atmosphere? 

A potentially explosive atmosphere exists when a mixture of air gases, vapours, mists, or dusts combine in a way that can ignite. In these environments an ATEX rated vacuum cleaner should be used. Due to their special construction, the creation of an ignition source is avoided.

What are dust zones?

There are 3 types of dust zones, 20, 21 & 22. These refer to how present an explosive atmosphere is.
