Gearboxes have ATEX Approval

Renold Gears have announced that its entire range of gearboxes now has ATEX approval and will be badged with the 'Ex' logo.  ATEX stands for Atmospheres Explosives which was introduced by the EEC in July 2003.  A British Standard, EN 13463-1:2001, covering non-electrical equipment for potentially explosive  atmospheres was introduced in the UK to match it.  Renold Gears' products have been classified in Group II, Category 2, for use in environments where there is potentially explosive gas, vapour, or air and dust mixtures.
