AW-Lake Company announces new ATEX and IECEx explosion-proof certifications of its RT-30EX meter-mounted flow transmitter and HUB-41EX flow sensor for use in hazardous areas. The certifications ensure compliance with all standards set forth by European Parliament and of the Council and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for safety and performance, according to the company. The formal evaluation process involves months of examination, testing and continuous follow-up inspections.
“In order to expand our global reach in areas such as the offshore and petrochemical markets, having products with the necessary hazardous area certifications is crucial,” says Mark Iverson, general manager of AW-Lake Company.
AW-Lake will continue to offer the RT-30EX transmitter with CSA (U.S. & Canada) certification, as well as the non-certified models for those not requiring the stringent criteria mandated by the certifying bodies.
