Flameproof Forklift Rentals converts materials handling equipment for use in hazardous areas..

We have the skills and expertise to protect all types of diesel and battery electric forklifts from the world’s leading manufacturers.

ZONES – DEFINE HAZARDOUS AREAS

Areas where potentially explosive atmospheres exist are formally classified into Zones:

Zone 1

A place in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air or flammable substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally. These are typically process areas.

Flameproof Forkliflt Rentals can convert almost all forklift trucks and vehicles for safe operation in Zone 1 areas. Many are standardised designs. All ignition sources are protected so that the equipment is safe to use in a flammable atmosphere. Conversions may include explosion proof Ex’d’ enclosures for arcing and sparking components, surface temperature limitation,
Ex’e’ components, Ex’i’ intrinsically safe circuits, Ex’m’ encapsulation, Ex’e’ battery, clad forks and more. Converted equipment is ATEX 94/9/EC compliant or compliant to relevant SANS 868 local regulations with the manufacturers approval.

Zone 2

An atmosphere where a mixture of air and flammable substances in the form of gas, vapor or mist is not likely to occur in normal operation but, if it does occur, will persist for a short period only. These can be both process and storage areas.

The most popular ‘Zone 2’ conversion features system6000, an ‘active’ system that enables the operator to be continuously informed if the operating area is safe or becoming hazardous. Conversions include IP rated enclosures for arcing and sparking components, surface temperature limitation, gas detection (option of infrared or pellistor heads) and shutdown system with audible and visible alarms, clad forks and more. With many standardised designs, Pyroban converted equipment is ATEX 94/9/EC compliant or compliant to relevant local regulations with the manufacturers approval.

Zone 21 / 22

Areas where powders and dusts are the hazard, with similar designations as above.

Flameproof Forklift Rentals can convert almost all forklift trucks and vehicles for safe operation in Zone 21 or 22 areas. Zone 1 and 2 combinations are available and many designs are standardised. Conversions may include explosion proof Ex’d’ enclosures for arcing and sparking components, surface temperature limitation, Ex’e’ components, Ex’i’ intrinsically safe circuits, Ex’m’ encapsulation, Ex’e’ battery, IP enclosures, clad forks and more. Converted equipment is ATEX 94/9/EC compliant or compliant to relevant local regulations with the manufacturers approval.

Ex Annual Safety Audit

The Ex-Annual Safety Audit is a thorough inspection of all the safety critical components of Pyroban’s explosion protection systems. The Ex-ASA ensures that the integrity and safety of your material handling equipment is not compromised during its working lifetime.

Ex-ASA compliments the work of a thorough Examination to leave the vehicle compliant and safe.
