Mechanical ATEX Inspection

Alongside our main core business of Electrical & Instrument Inspection in Hazardous Areas is the provision of Mechanical (Non-Electrical) Inspections.

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.
