Helping to create an explosive atmosphere on a daily basis

Design and manufacturing of a new facility to test the integrity of new components with a pre-set mixture of explosive gases in cooperation with KIWA ExVision b.v.

To Type 8712 - Mass Flow Controller for Gases (MFC)

Mass Flow Controller

The Types 8626 and 8712 mass flow controller are compact devices, based on experience in measuring, controlling and regulating fluids.

Designing and manufacturing a component for use in potentially explosive atmospheres requires considerable engineering skill, but designing and creating a facility in which these components are tested could be considered even more challenging. For one ATEX certification company this meant calling in Bürkert Fluid Control Systems to help create a bespoke testing facility.

Based in Apeldoorn in the Netherlands, Kiwa ExVision is an independent test and certification organisation that provides a range of services for manufacturers of equipment and components designed for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. In order to deliver the most efficient service to its clients, the company wanted to create a new test facility that would allow a pre-set mixture of explosive gases to be used for testing the integrity of new components. The engineers at Kiwa Ex-Vision had a very clear idea of what they wanted but they realised that making the concept a reality would require a different type of expertise. As one of the leading manufacturers of control and measuring systems for fluids and gases, Bürkert Fluid Control Systems has over 25 years’ experience in delivering solutions for hazardous areas to a wide range of industries and applications.
