Certificated by BASEEFA who are an Ex Certified Body, to the IECEx standard for the overhaul and repair of equipment used hazardous atmospheres - protection types d, e and n. has been awarded to our Chesterfield repair workshop.
The ERIKS workshop is only the third motor repair shop in the UK to achieve this Certification.
When electrical equipment is installed in those areas where dangerous concentrations and quantities of flammable gases, vapours, mists or dusts may be present in the atmosphere, protective measures are required to reduce the likelihood of explosion due to ignition by arcs, sparks or hot surfaces that may be produced either in normal operation or under fault conditions. IEC 60079-19 certification requires repairers to establish and maintain procedures as well as employees´ competence for the repair, overhaul and reclamation of certified electrical apparatus designed for use in explosive atmospheres including those used in mines.
Users of electrical equipment of this type should have significantly greater confidence in that the recovery and maintenance work performed by the ERIKS Chesterfield Service Centre to Ex equipment will be undertaken by competent employees to the very highest standards that are regularly assessed by an internationally recognised and independent body.
