KENDRION & INTORQ are manufacturers of electromagnetic components for explosion protection, which are mainly used where sparking represents a considerable safety risk. This environment can be found for example in refineries, on drilling platforms, in the mining industry or in other chemical plants.
In KENDRION spring-applied single-disc brakes and INTORQ BFK458 ATEX with dust and explosion protection, the parts which can cause ignition of explosive mixtures are enclosed in a housing. This prevents an explosion inside the housing from being transmitted to the surrounding mixtures in the event of an explosion.
Electromagnets for explosion protection must prevent the ignition of the explosive atmosphere in the environment in which they are used. Other specifications that solenoids for explosion protection must meet are high-temperature resistance and safe and reliable switching.
All electromagnets and electromagnetic brakes offered by KENDRION & INTORQ for use in potentially explosive atmospheres comply with the ATEX directives.
