GEA Barr-Rosin CERTEX(TM) ATEX Certified Explosion Vent Doors get noticed Worldwide

GEA Barr-Rosin's CERTEX™ ATEX Certified Explosion Vent Doors are quickly gaining a reputation for their robust, re-sealable, flush-fitting and self-insulated features getting them noticed by the agrifood processing industry worldwide for both new build and retro-fitting to existing systems. 

CERTEX™ doors (which are certified as a protective system under directive 94/9/EC and compliant with EN14797) are robust and therefore not liable to the process thermal cycling and pressure fluctuations that regularly cause standard venting panels to fail. This results in reliable dryer protection without the burdensome maintenance and replacement needs often found with standard venting panels. If activated the doors do not need replacing, as with standard vents, but can be reset using a relatively simple sacrificial tab.

GEA Barr-Rosin is the only company to provide ATEX-approved self-closing Explosion Venting Doors specifically designed for agrifood drying systems. In addition to the CERTEX™ vent doors, GEA Barr-Rosin can also offer an auditing service, which is essential when retro-fitting and upgrading existing installations. 

In recent landmark orders, the company has supplied several sets of CERTEX™ doors for new builds and for retro-fitting to existing systems in locations both within and outside the ATEX zone including Finland, Poland, Thailand, and Brazil.  "We are delighted that CERTEX™ has been so well received around the world," said Dominique Kuehner, Sales and Marketing Manager for GEA Barr-Rosin.  "Given the product's benefits we are sure the list will continue to grow."
