Full protection in extreme conditions

Explosionproof solutions

 

Optimal handling combined with the highest safety levels

The presence of flammable gases, vapors, mists and dusts in production plants and warehouses carries the risk of combustion and explosion. Managers of industrial facilities in which such conditions exist have to find intralogistics solutions that not only are efficient and ergonomic, but also comprehensively protected against the risk of explosion.
Numerous STILL forklift trucks are available with explosionproof equipment compliant with EU regulations (EN 1755) and the ATEX Directive (2014/34/EU). Counterbalanced trucks, reach trucks and pallet trucks – whichever are to be used in an environment carrying the heightened risk of an explosion – can be suited with STILL EX solutions. In the effect, STILL provides internal transport vehicles suited for all kinds of industrial facilities in which the risk of explosion is high.



High explosion risk industries

Factors increasing explosion risk

Chemicals, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics

In the various chemical plants, all sorts of substances are decanted, mixed and refined. STILL forklift trucks with special equipment are up for the task. For example, the drum cradle provides safe and precise decanting of a liquid. An operator using a remote control can monitor the process from a safe location with a good view of the drum. The quantity of the substance is measured with an integrated scale.

Food and beverages

The process of distillation and storage of beverages kept in wooden barrels can result in secretion of flammable vapors. Moreover, such containers limit an operator’s view during the transport with a forklift truck. Luckily, STILL vehicles can be fitted for these and other potentially dangerous conditions met in food and beverage industry thanks to ATEX equipment, cameras, warning lines and Blue Safety Light.

Logistics

Many production processes include the storage and transport of hazardous substances. Some of them are stored in-house, some in external warehouses managed by logistics service providers. STILL offers its clients numerous vehicles perfect for this job, such as: efficient electric counterbalanced trucks, reach trucks and narrow aisle trucks suitable for storage and retrieval in ATEX zones.

Oil and gas

Due to long distances to cross and harsh conditions to resist, counter- balanced forklift trucks are the most popular type of vehicles used for outdoors transport in oil and gas plants, refineries and petrochemical plants. Thanks to their robust design and ergonomics, ATEX versions of the trucks are ideally suited for these applications. They provide operators with fatigue- free working conditions and are able to transfer loads up to 8 tons.

Recycling and the military

Disposal and recycling processes are based on recurring decantation of hazardous substances, emptying of drums and transport of containers. The STILL RX series electric forklifts with ATEX certified attachments ensure safe and ergonomic operation in these areas. Barrel clamps and explosionproof trolleys provide both effective and safe disposal of contents of barrels and removal of ammunition.
