Protecting Health

Improving Safety

If a fan fails the risk of spark potential is huge. If the fan isn’t certified or not certified correctly the spark mitigation won’t be identified and there is an even greater risk of explosion.

24% of corporate losses is due to fire related incidents!

Everyday, there are 16 industrial explosions!

Per year globally, there are approximately:

340 million industrial accidents…

380,000 industrial fatalities…

Damage Caused By A Non-Compliant Fan

The below images shows the catastrophic failure of an impeller on a fan which was in use within an explosive atmosphere.
