The ELESA ATEX line has been recently enlarged with the new HFTX-EX oil level indicator in transparent technopolymer with an anodized aluminum star-shaped contrast screen. It is characterized by a magnifying lens with a particular shape to increase and improve visibility, even from side positions.
Other products in the ELESA ATEX line include plugs, breather caps, oil level sight glasses and oil lever indicators. These products are designed for applications in potentially explosive atmospheres in pneumatic, hydraulic, electrical and mechanical systems. They comply with health and safety requirements according to the new 2014/34/UE ATEX European Directive (explosive atmospheres) for equipment in Group II, category 2GD.
A potentially explosive atmosphere exists when a mixture of air gases, vapors, mists, or dusts combine in a way that can ignite under certain operating conditions.
The laser-engraved mark on the products and the declaration of conformity certify that the products of this line are manufactured in full compliance with requirements and provisions of the European Union Directive and submitted to procedures for conformity assessment.
ELESA brand SFP-EX breather caps, HGFT-EX oil level sight glasses and TN-EX plugs are now also available in yellow RAL 1021. While this color doesn’t represent a requirement of the new Directive, it reminds the user of the ATEX logo.
