ATEX conversion or modification consists in ensuring that an existing machine is protected and certified and therefore suitable and safe for use in ATEX zones.
Every conversion we carry out is a specific project in its own right, and consequently requires its own specific process and method.
The first stage of the project is to consult with the client to find out about the demands that are usually placed on the equipment depending on the zone and conditions of use.
By taking into account the whole context in which the equipment is used, we can better determine the correct zoning for the site, or optimize the usage scenarios.
This stage is of paramount importance, as it allows us to make the best choice, and to choose the most suitable level of conversion, (not too much, not too little). An insufficient level of modification would put the user at risk. Over-modification would lead to unnecessary costs, as well as increase the complexity of the work involved and the level of maintenance required.
Once the Category, the Group, and the Class of the machine (or equipment) have been determined, the conversion work can begin.
