After a tremendous effort from the Gas Data R&D team the Click! System has achieved ATEX certification for Zone 1 hazard areas. This covers environments “in which an explosive gas/air mixture is likely to occur in normal operation”.
The system (branded Click! EXD) features a newly designed explosion proof enclosure and a range of internal modifications to tubing and wiring.
The major challenge, however, was getting through the arduous certification process. The standards have been changed recently and Gas Data was one of the first company’s to test them with real equipment.
Achieving certification means that we can install Click! System gas analysers directly into plant rooms. This means gas monitoring and analysis capability is right where it’s needed. It also provides greater flexibility in the design of the overall analysis system, which should result in reduced maintenance costs.
A number of our customers, particularly in the gas-to-grid sector, have been eagerly anticipating this capability. A number of installations have already gone live around the UK and in Europe.
