ATEX & safety FAQ

Why is an ATEX Non-Return Valve necessary when operating in an explosive atmosphere?

If you are operating in an explosive atmosphere, it is recommended to work with install an ATEX Non-Return Valve. Without ATEX equipment, the consequences of an explosion can be severe. 

What happens if you do not have an ATEX Non-Return Valve installed?

The installation of an ATEX Non-Return Valve is crucial for the safety of your system in the event of an explosion. Without one, the explosion can cause damage to your installation and result in costly downtime while the affected system components are replaced. More importantly, without this safety valve, employees are at risk of injury from shock waves and flames that can travel through the system. 

How does the ATEX Non-Return Valve protect your system during an explosion?

ATEX Non-Return Valve is designed to remain open during normal operation as air flows through it. In the event of an explosion, the pressure of the explosion causes a drop in airflow, which triggers the valve to close by its own weight, blocking the ducting. In general the working principle of a non-return valve would make the pressure wave and flame push in the opposite direction of the airflow, forcing the flap against the frame of the device and blocking the rest of the ducting. It is the most important component of your ATEX equipment.

Where should the ATEX Non-Return Valve be installed?

It is important to follow the instructions in the ATEX Non-Return Valve manual for installation requirements. You must consider product position, distances between other installation components, ducting material, ATEX fan model, type of dust and other critical factors.
