This means that the TUFF pumps can be used in hazardous plants and production sites where this is a potential risk of explosive dust or gas.
This latest certification is in addition to the ATEX (EU) and IECEx (International) Intrinsically Safe approvals that the Personal Air Sampling Pumps already hold.
Designed to European IP54 standards, which means it is protected from dust and splashing water, the TUFF is the only Personal Air Sampling Pump to receive the certification to ‘M1’ classification required for mining applications. This allows it to be safely used underground without the need for a hot work permit.
Casella CEL Market Manager Tim Turney comments: “Although there are international accreditations, many countries still impose their own standards for certain applications. As a business with increasing overseas growth, Casella CEL decided to seek ANZEx approval to ensure that we could continue to easily supply customers in Australia and New Zealand.”
Casella CEL (working environment) is part of Bedford-based Casella Measurement.
