Peli torches are for use in hazardous areas and comply with ATEX directive - Peli torches are certified to ATEX Zone 0 (Category 1) or Zone 1 (Category 2). Peli hazardous area torches can also be certified to Dust Zone 20 and 21.
Peli torches with ATEX certification are specified to provide lighting in hazardous areas - hazardous areas are locations in which special precautions are required when using electrical equipment due to the presence of potentially explosive atmospheres. Peli torches are available in hands-free, rechargeable and helmet mounted torch types.
Hazardous Area Zones Classification
Zone 1 - where flammable atmosphere is likely to occur during normal operation.
Zone 2 - where flammable atmosphere is not likely to occur during normal operation and if it does will only exist for short period of time, typically less than 10 hours per year.
Zone 21 - a place in which an explosive atmosphere, in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in air, is likely to occur occasionally in normal operation.
Zone 22 - a place in which an explosive atmosphere, in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in air, is likely to occur in normal operation but, if it does occur, will persist only for a short period.
Peli Torches - ATEX Certification & Hazardous Areas
To meet the exacting requirements of ATEX directive 94/9/EC, Peli Torches are tested to ensure that they pose no threat of ignition when operating within hazardous area locations. Using approved laboratories, Peli Torches are tested to ensure that they will withstand rigorous impact and drop tests, severe environmental exposure and meet a minimum of IP54 solid and liquid particles ingress protection. Longevity and safety are assured by Peli design. Each Peli Torch certified by ATEX should have a code printed on its body. This ATEX code advises the user as to the hazarodus area in which the Peli Torch can be safely used without risk of explosion. The hazardous area (T) Temperature ratings are as follows for Peli Torches and general ATEX electrical equipment : T1=450ºC T2=300ºC T3=200ºC T4=135ºC T5=100ºC T6=85ºC.
