This year, at the traditional international appointment of AllPack exhibition in Jakarta, we will present the latest innovation in our product portfolio: our new fully auto bagging machines for “open mouth” premade bags. Available in two versions:

  • BFO 400 EX, gross weight up to 400 bags/h
  • BFO 600 EX, net weight up to 600 bags/h.

What is ATEX certification, and why is it so important in our sector?

The acronym “ATEX” stands for “ATmosphere EXplosive”. An atmosphere explosive is basically a mixture of different flammable substances in gaseous state, steams and fogs or combustibles in dusty state which, under certain conditions, with an ignition, a possible combustion propagates until it reaches the flammable substance. This certification is used to prevent the risk of explosion related to the processing of dusty material which, under some conditions (ex. high levels of oxygen), can cause fires. Consequently, our company committed herself to propose weighing and bagging solution with ATEX certification for zone, 20/21 internal 22 external.

What are the materials involved in this certification?

ATEX certification is an essential element in the processing of the following materials: cereals, wheats, legumes, fodders, milk powders, sugar and flammable chemical powders. All these materials can represent a significant risk of the creation of explosive atmosphere, particularly in their processing during the industrial productive cycle.

BFO 400 – 600 EX

How is ATEX certification achieved?

Every certification is reached after a deep risk analysis from our technical staff, which tests every single item of the machine, as well as the specific characteristics of the products that will be processed. Our detail-oriented approach makes us committed to analyse every element, in order to minimise the risk of fire and explosion. Furthermore, every step of the production process is constantly monitored from our sensors, that will avoid the creation of mixtures of dust cloud and oxygen during the producing process.

Why choose us?

Because we are one of the few international companies able to design and produce ATEX certified machines completely customized, engineered on the basis of the product that will be processed in your company. Every single product in our portfolio is completely customer-based, so every certification perfectly fits the product processed, without resulting superior or inadequate to certification requirements, thus avoiding additional costs to our clients.
