NETZSCH Vakumix GmbH, Weyhe-Dreye / Germany

In February 2014 the Business Unit Grinding & Dispersing of the NETZSCH Group purchased the business of the company “VAKUMIX Rühr- und Homogenisiertechnik AG” and is going to resume the business activities as of March 1, 2014. With this step the Business Unit Grinding & Dispersing expands their product range in the field mixing, dispersing and homogenizing.

Under the new name “NETZSCH Vakumix GmbH” business will be continued from the current premises in Weyhe-Dreye near Bremen in Lower Saxony. The company “VAKUMIX Rühr- und Homogenisiertechnik AG” had been founded there back in 1995. The product range comprises customized systems like mixers, homogenizers, homogenizing mixers and process systems from the laboratory size up to a complete production plant. The machines are mainly used for pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical and food applications.

„The product portfolio of the “VAKUMIX AG” and of the Business Unit Grinding & Dispersing ideally complement one another because there is no overlap of products. We will be able to offer our customers even better and more comprehensive solutions within the mixing and dispersion technology. At the same time we will strengthen our presence in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic sector,” said Dimitrios Makrakis, head of the Business Unit Grinding & Dispersing.

ATEX compliant plants

The new ATEX-Directive rules the resposibility and the design of the plant parts.

The operator of the plant is responsible for the allocation of the zone classification.

The lawmaker transferred the responsibility of the EEx-conformity to the owner of the plants by means of the new ATEX-Directive.

However, zone 0 means that all electrical and mechanical / dynamical installations used in the vessel have to be carried out according to ATEX Zone 0.

Zone 0 means that one “appointed authority“ (PTB, TÜV etc.) must test the use of all installed parts / fittings / agitators / pumps / sensors. These units have to be undergone to a EC-design test, that is that all electrical and mechanical / dynamical parts installed in the vessel must be carried out according to ATEX Zone 0.

Only such units / plants are allowed which have an EC-design test certificate or the evidence has to be provided that there are no ignition sources.

It is not sufficient that the gear motor, e. g. for an agitator, is supplied with an EC-design test certificate.

The evidence has to be brought that neither electric charging nor any ignition sources can come up at rotating parts / seals / agitator / scraper system and that defined flow velocities are kept. This has to be guaranteed with control units which have also to be proved with EC design test.
Thus the whole agitator subassembly has to be undergone an ATEX hazard analysis, such that an EC design test certificate can be issued.

In order to make sure that the ATEX regulation can be adhered and that the machine is supplied with an EC compliant certificate, a specially authorized ATEX person is necessary at the supplier. This person is responsible for making sure that the designs have an ATEX compliant version and that a safety analysis is carried out, in order to start necessary measures and tests at the machine.

The name of the ATEX – authorized person has to be deposited at the registration office. This person is responsible for an ATEX compliant supply.

The qualifications and workflows of the manufacturer are tested and certified on the basis of a quality management system by the TÜV or PTB authorized person.

The supplied machines with the corresponding ATEX compliant approval have to be listed up in a list which is checked by the registration office. If the company does not fulfill these requirements, the company loses its ATEX approval.

NETZSCH Vakumix has the following certifications:

  • Approval of the quality management system accoording to ATEX TÜV 04 ATEX 2681 Q
  • Agitator KappaVita Type HM/VHM: TÜV 06 ATEX 2760 X
  • Homogenizer LambdaVita Type DHO: TÜV 04 ATEX 2637
  • Circulation Agitator Type UMR: TÜV 04 ATEX 2608 X
  • Control Equipment: TÜV 04 ATEX 2680

 

If foreign parts are installed, the supplier of these foreign parts has to meet the same requirements and has to prove design tests and to provide the corresponding documentation.
