Moving Loads In Hazardous Environments
Explosive environments in the workplace can be caused by flammable gases, mists and vapors or by combustible dusts. If there is enough of the substance present, mixed with air, then all it needs is a source of ignition, such as an electrical spark, to cause an explosion.
Preventing the source of ignition is minimized by using the correct equipment in the hazardous area. Examples of hazardous areas in the workplace include vehicle paint spraying and handling fine organic dusts such as grain flour and wood.
Power Pusher® offers all of our electric tugs independently modified and certified so they are safe for use in potentially explosive environments. They are modified and certified according to the U.S. standards.
