All products are available in explosion-proof versions according to ATEX directives and IECex and UL/Nema certifications. Products can be supplied in electric or manual versions. Commitment, expertise and flexibility make ETS one of the most dynamic lifting companies in Italy and abroad. It aims to make a light task of your complex and heavy daily loads.
Cranes and hoists
ETS offers crane components and provides an after-sales service for erection and maintenance. Besides the design and production of cranes and hoists in accordance with Machine Directive 2006/42/EC, ETS Engineering is also able to design and produce cranes and hoists in accordance with European ATEX directive 94/9/EC and normative prescription EN13463.
Explosion-proof overhead cranes
ETS is certified with ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 through DNV and notified for the production of explosion-proof overhead travelling cranes for offshore and onshore applications through Bureau Veritas. All ETS products satisfy the safety requirements for Group II and Category 2 and 3 (Zone 1 and Zone 2) explosion-proof areas. The company’s explosion-proof classification complies with Eex-d and Eex-d/e IIB or IIC up to temperature range T4.
Great production experience in the Ex-d anti-explosion field allows ETS to supply to petrochemical and/or highly explosive environments. Machines are supplied with anti-explosive, non-sparking, closed, externally ventilated electric motors with brakes and increased safety. All appliances comply with requested standards regarding installation in dangerous areas where explosive atmospheres may develop. ETS overhead cranes can therefore be used in the pharmaceutical, oil, chemical, petrochemical, engineering and process plant engineering industries and in the mining and offshore maritime sectors.
The new ATEX directive has led to new rules inherent to the anti-explosion sector in Europe and beyond, meaning that new management and control systems must be introduced to ensure a greater guarantee of safety on products introduced into the market which are only to be used in potentially explosive environments. ETS is able to supply a product that complies with the ATEX directive and which is therefore suitable for use in the European market and worldwide. The company has supplied applications for ATEX-classified plants in countries including Italy, Brazil, Russia, Kazakhstan, Switzerland, Nigeria, Algeria, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE.
