Hazardous Area Machines (ATEX)
At Central Group we pride ourselves on being a Centre of Excellence for repairs to ATEX Equipment, including any rotating equipment which is suitable for use in a Hazardous Environment.
We're keen to provide our customers with exactly the right information in order for them to meet their legal obligations. We also know that the consequences of not fully complying with EX regulations can be deadly.
A typical repair of an Exd motor or pump from Central Group will be delivered with an eight page Repair Report and Test Certificate containing information which is critical to your records, including:
Full Machine Details (including the standard to which the machine was manufactured)
A Joint Face Condition Report
Details of the Free Volume of the Stator Chamber
Full details of the Maximum Permissible Gaps
Thread Condition Report
Radial Air-Gap Calculation
Full details of Work Completed to the asset
Full Final Test Results
We recommend that this report is stored for the lifetime of the asset in line with your obligations. We also recommend that a copy is provided to any future repairers. If you choose to come back to Central for your repair, we will already have this information on record.
In addition to the above, your repairer should provide a 'Repair Nameplate' which details the following:
- Repairers Triangle (R inside an upside down triangle)
- Company Identification
- The Repair Reference Number
- The Date of Certification
- The Standard of Repair
All work to ATEX equipment is carried out in line with the AEMT Recommendations
