Yes. The Seeflex 040AS has anti-static properties to ensure static does not build up through product flow (friction). The anti-static strap is required for any occurrence of electricity through the system. This could be caused by any unexpected current/charge. No connector will allow a large/sudden electrical charge to pass so the strap is required to ensure a spark does not pass between pieces of equipment.
Seeflex 040E has been confirmed by IBExU as Atex compliant for all Dust Zones Please refer to the ‘BFM® Declaration of Compliance - ATEX’ document for more information. A copy of the testing reports are available on request.
The pressure sensors used in the Pneumatic Monitoring System are made by SMC and are CE certified.
We have currently tested a single Pneumatic Monitoring System on spigots up to Ø350mm. For spigots Ø400mm and over, we advise installing additional sensors. Please contact BFM® Global for specific recommendations on this.
