Biomass power plants prefer to use secondary fuels such as wood pellets that do not contain metals, so that their burner beds are not contaminated. It is therefore very important for you as a wood processor that your end product is virtually metal-free. Especially for the dusty and fire-hazardous woodchip and pellet industry, we have a top band magnet with very strong neodymium magnets that is fully ATEX certified. The magnet is completely enclosed and all critical components are brought outside the zone. Bakker Magnetics has extensive experience with ATEX certification and can recommend the best configuration for you.
To clarify the following: ATEX directives are not standards, but mandatory instructions for the adaptation of national legislation in the participating states of the European Union (EU).
