Villo's VJFGB series dust collectors has recently obtained ATEX certification, a compulsive certification of equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres in the European Union.
It is Villo's third series of products that have been certified by ATEX, following the VZSB Series industrial vacuum cleaner, and explosion isolation valve, suggesting high level safety and reliability of Villo’s production.
What is the ATEX Directive?
"ATEX" (Atmosphères explosibles) refers to the European Directive 2014/34/EU, which establishes essential safety requirements for equipment and protection systems in potentially explosive atmospheres.
In certain applications, such as the manufacturing of lithium batteries, spray-painting, chemical production, wood cutting and flour processing, there is a potential for explosive gases, dust or vapors to be released into the atmosphere.
If these explosions were to cause damage to equipment, the potential risks would be exceedingly high. Therefore, the ATEX directive aims to certify all equipment (including our dust collectors) that is deemed suitable and safe for use in explosive environments.
