Work areas and machines used to process hazardous substances or materials are subject to especially high risks and therefore protected with suitable measures. The EX representative of the company or plant determines the production resources and equipment in such a way as to minimize the risk of an explosion even with malfunctions or defects of such resources or equipment. The utilized devices have to be certified by an independent organization in accordance with the EX guideline ATEX 94/9 and then are issued a test certificate, namely the ATEX Type Test Certificate.
EGE offers a broad spectrum of sensors for industrial automation and process technology applications. All of these are approved for use in hazardous environments. EGE has many years of experience with EX protection and was the first company to globally market inductive and capacitive proximity switches also approved for use in dust atmospheres prone to explosions.
EGE provides the following sensors:
Flow controllers: For high temperatures, for aggressive media, in special materials and special designs.
Level controllers: Capacitive and opto sensors for high temperatures, aggressive media
