Parker Fluid Control Division Receives ATEX Certification

October 21, 2003
Parker Fluid Control Division has announced that a number of its coils designed for the European market have been certified under the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC. The directive defines technical standards for products intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, and was made mandatory throughout the European Union in July. The ATEX Directive requires that all products that could ignite a potentially explosive atmosphere be produced to specific requirements and under controlled conditions. The purpose of the directive is to ensure the safe usage of equipment performing under hazardous conditions and to provide a high level of protection for employees.
