SCAME, manufacturer of IEC products since 5 decades, has developed also an articulated range of ATEX-IECEx products for installation in hazardous areas due to the presence of gas or dust.
Enclosures, Junction boxes, control stations, disconnecting switches, interlocked switchsocket outlets and relevant plugs, certified IECEx II 2GD (Gas & Dust) by leading Notification Bodies such as SIRA and INERIS and EAC Ex by russian laboratory CCVE.
Thanks to the Increased Safety method of protection (Ex e) given by the enclosure and the adoption of a specific non sparking switch (Ex de) , the interlocked switchsocket outlets ADVANCE-GRP [GD] series and ISOLATORS-EX [GD] Series of switch disconnectors for Zone 1, allow easy installation equal to a normal products for industrial applications as well as no need for periodic maintenance and checks, as the ATEX Directive 2014/34/UE (specifically EN 60079-15 Standard) requires for other methods of protection such as the “Ex nR” (limited breathing enclosures).
Coming to ZENITH-P series of junction boxes and control stations, the flexibility of SCAME production system, allows to customize the product to the customer’s technical requirements, as well as to provide it as an “Equipment” certificate, thus ensuring tailor made solutions.
For zone 21 and 22, where the risk of explosion is given by presence of combustible dust SCAME has developed dedicated solutions certified IECEx II 2D, so to offer the maximum level of protection for the specific application where products certified GD are redundant.
All of these features, along with an accurate design and the adoption of the noblest raw materials such as GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) for the housing, make of SCAME a reliable partner also for hazardous environments.
