mt-oct-13Equipment and products operating in hazardous areas are required to meet stringent criteria. They must be 'protected' to avoid the possibility of them becoming a source of ignition. Weighing systems are often an integral part of a process within the hazardous area and therefore must have suitable protection

Many industries face major challenges when defining a zone as hazardous and this can have major implications for your business operation should you fail to meet the required legislative standards.
