Alongside our main core business of Electrical & Instrument
Inspection in Hazardous Areas is the provision of Mechanical
We have seen a sharp rise in requests for this type of inspection in
line with BS EN ISO 80079-36:2016 which covers the basic method and
requirements for non-electrical equipment for explosive atmospheres.
ATEX 95, The Product Directive 2014/34/EU, gives constructional
requirements for electrical and non-electrical equipment; and the ATEX
Worker Protection Directive requires non-electrical equipment already
installed to be assessed for its ignition capability. Typical examples
of existing non-electrical equipment that require risk assessment are
solenoid valves, pumps, conveyor belts, hoists, gearboxes, brakes etc.
The deliverables from Cenelec Standards Inspections Ltd for mechanical
inspection are in line with our provision of immediate online inspection
results to build up the non-electrical ATEX Hazardous Area Equipment
Register, provide separate inspection check sheets / assessments for
each individual item, and a packaged equipment assessment.
