Ex-proof solutions case study
Ex-protected vehicles in various industries
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.
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.
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.
