ReactIR™ 247 Receives Ex Certification for Zone 1 Hazardous Environments
Product News Feb 15, 2012
Mettler Toledo has announced ReactIR™ 247 has been certified for safe use by TRaC in HL-ATEX Zone 1 hazardous manufacturing environments and is ready for immediate shipment.
Mettler Toledo ReactIR™ 247 HL-ATEX configuration helps manufacturers in Europe and around the world take advantage of next-generation Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) analysis to characterize a nearly limitless array of process chemistry reactions.
Additionally, the compact, plug-and-play design also allows it to be used at multiple points along the manufacturing line, resulting in significant testing and manufacturing cost reductions and shortening time-to-market.
With this certification, ReactIR™ 247 now displays the Ex Mark label. This labeling indicates ReactIR™ 247 met required safety standards necessary for compliance to the ATEX Directive and led to the issuance of an EC Type Examination Certificate TRAC1 1ATEX21306X.
These standards include; EN60079-0:2006 - General Requirements for Gases; EN60079-1:2007 - Flameproof Equipment for (Ex d); and EN60079-28:2007 - Explosive Atmospheres.
Meeting these rigorous standards-as well as Mettler Toledo expertise in manufacturing precision devices-helps ensure quality managers can obtain faster results without compromising safety, particularly in sensitive industries such as fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
ReactIR™ 247 is known for its ability to provide fast, real-time information that aids in process optimization. Easy-to-use, and with a small benchprint, ReactIR™ 247 can be incorporated at many points along a production line.
ReactIR™ 247 design also effectively solves a variety of long-standing problems with multi-flow synthesis such as controlling different reagent streams.
ReactIR™ 247 ATEX rating makes it appropriate for use in Europe and around the world, with the exception of North America.
Mettler Toledo ReactIR™ 247 HL-UL, certified for Class 1, Division 1 hazardous use in the United States and Canada, is available for manufacturers operating in this region.
