IECEx and ATEX approved actuators for safe and accurate grain handling

LINAK Australia introduces a range of actuator solutions approved to IECEx
and ATEX standards for safe and accurate grain handling applications. The IECEx
and ATEX approved actuators increase safety and profitability in
production.

Typical grain handling facilities face a number of challenges including lack
of blending control and accuracy from the manual operation; tough working
conditions; and use of manual labour in dust explosive areas compromising employee
safety.

Though electric automation may address these challenges, it could also
present a risk with ignition causing the fine grain dust to explode.

LINAK’s actuator solutions are approved for use in dust explosive
atmospheres. The actuators LA36, LA25 and LA14 are now approved according to
IECEx and ATEX standards, providing grain handling facilities a unique
opportunity to automate a wide range of applications.

With LINAK’s actuators, grain handling facilities can: ensure better
blending with high accuracy for profitable production; have better control of applications
with feedback features for increased awareness and effectiveness; introduce better
working conditions by replacing hard manual labour with automatic solutions;
and offer the assurance of increased safety with reduced risk of dust
explosions, entrapment and suffocation from engulfment.

Combined with easy installation, zero maintenance and high reliability, LINAK solutions for grain handling automation mean shorter payback time for an investment.
