In order to obtain information about the safety precautions that should be taken when handling the powder/dust/gas/liquid you are processing, it is important to have information about the ignition and explosion characteristics of your material(s). The performance of risk assessments as required by the ATEX Directive 1999/92/EC without the knowledge of such characteristics is virtually impossible.
Gexcon can perform several types of standardised tests to investigate the characteristics that describe the ignitability and explosibility of different materials. Several different tests often need to be performed in order to obtain the necessary material properties to be able to adequately characterise the hazards associated with your raw materials or products. All standardised tests are performed according to internationally accepted standards.
