Distillation units in hazardous areas

Wiped film and short path distillation systems are often installed in hazardous areas and have to comply with the local guidelines for explosion protection. Well-known are the ATEX guideline (European Union) and NEC „National Electrical Code" (USA).

VTA production systems are designed, manufactured, installed and labeled according to these guidelines.

Example: Labeling of a double stage wiped film and short path distillation unit

The classification of hazardous zones and temperature classes is done in cooperation with the customer, typically a HAZOP is conducted.

Corresponding declarations of conformity are integral part of the documentation and ensure a simple preparation of all necessary documents which are necessary for a later acceptance of the system by the local authorities (at customer’s site).
