Oil & Gas
Oil & gas and related sectors viz. refining, chemicals, petrochemicals, fertilisers, paints are characterised by hazardous, explosion prone, hot environment. Safety of man and material is the prime concern while designing and installing material handling equipment in these sectors. The ATEX guideline applies to all places where explosions can take place and covers a wide area of operation including gas explosion and dust explosion hazard. Thus, the intralogistics material handling equipment and trucks need to explosion proof. ElectroMech offers Yale range of EX i.e. explosion proof reach trucks, pallet stackers and trucks. Utmost care is taken to ensure that components which can trigger sparking eg. Wheels, forks etc are provided with surface treatment protection. Surface temperature of individual truck components is monitored and regulated to avoid overheating.
