Hazardous Area Weighing

Weighing equipment in explosive areas must fulfill stringent regulatory requirements to ensure process safety. However, some safety concepts, can influence weighing performance and make maintenance a challenge. That is why Himatrix offers METTLER TOLEDO weighing instruments that combine proven safety in hazardous areas with uncompromised weighing accuracy and performance. Approvals for ATEX, FM, IECEx and local regulations ensure regulatory compliance wherever you operate.

Accurate and consistent filling, dosing and batching are essential to ensure consistently high product quality. When choosing the right weighing equipment for hazardous areas, the correct classification and the appropriate method of ignition protection must be considered. Installing intrinsically safe weighing instruments ensures accurate and reliable weighing results at highest protection levels.

intrinsically safe weighing equipment is ideal for weighing in hazardous areas because it keeps the entire system safe – independent from the weighing application. Intrinsically safe technology prevents explosions by ensuring that the energy transferred to a hazardous area is well below the energy required to initiate an explosion. Intrinsically safe systems allow equipment to be used without risk of igniting any flammable gas, dust or fibers that may be present in hazardous areas.

We offer the following hazardous area weighing solutions:
