ATHEX bvba was founded in May 1998, after a journey of about 15 years, across the most respected companies in the field of process safety, explosion safety and environmental technologies.
ATHEX bvba is active in different industrial manufacturers, such as the Chemical & Petrochemical Industry, Storage Liquid & Solids, Food & Pharma, Steel Industry, Study & Consulting, Energy - Power Plants, Installing & Contracting, Agro, Waste Recovery, etc.
The name ATHEX is a short form compilation of the different disciplines we are active in:
- Antistatic & earthing systems
- Tank storage & silo fittings
- Heating technology
- Explosion safety
Athex bvba has already a fine record in these markets; we can present you references like Bayer, Electrabel, AjinomotoOmnichem, Arcelor, Belgian Refining Corporation, BASF, LanXess, Univar, Adpo, Schenker, BP, Fives NA, Vopak, I
The Earth-Rite Mobile Ground Verification system (MGV) is a unique, patented technology, designed to provide automatic confirmation of a positive electrostatic earth connection for trucks, collecting and transferring flammable & combustible products.
The Earth-Rite MGV is designed to enable operators establish safe earthing of their vehicle in accordance with the recommended practices.
Cen-Stat static discharge reels provide personnel with a convenient means of stowing static earthing clamps and cable when not in use. The galvanised cable is covered with a layer of high visibility Hytrel coating protecting it from chemical attack.
Static electricity can be generated during handling of non-conducting liquids and powders.
The need of a proper grounding for FIBC Bigbags can not be underestimated to improve safety in loading/unloading processes.
The IECEx / ATEX / SIL2 Earth-Rite® FIBC system monitors the resistance of Type C FIBC bags ensuring the static dissipative elements of the bag are capable of conducting electrostatic charges through the FIBC in compliance with IEC 61340-4-4 “Standard test methods for specific applications – Electrostatic classification of flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBC)” and NFPA 77 “Recommended Practice on Static Electricity”.
We can offer very different kinds of ATEX or industrial LED lighting fixtures, for different applications, with high quality standards.
ATHEX offers a wide range of static earthing solutions aimed at any industry where flammable, combustible and explosive atmospheres are present. Our products are used in different kind of industries.
The Earth-Rite FIBC system monitors the resistance of Type C FIBC bags ensuring that the conductive elements of the bag are capable of dissipating static charges in compliance with Cenelec CLC/TR: 50404.
The FIBC system can be setup to ensure that operators ground the bag before operations are started. During the bag filling / emptying process the Earth-Rite FIBC system continuously monitors the resistance of the bag so that if it rises above the recommended level of 10E8 ohms the process can be halted.
This feature ensures the generation and accumulation of static charges on the bag is stopped eliminating the risk of an incendive electrostatic spark discharge.
To compensate for normal wear and tear on Type C bags it is important to ensure the bag maintains its capacity to dissipate charge and also ensure the ground connection between the bag and plant earth grounding point is functioning correctly.
The OhmGuard® Hose Continuity Tester is designed to test hoses used on vacuum trucks and tanker trucks prior to the transfer of flammable or combustible products.
The OhmGuard® It verifies that the electrical conductivity of the hose is functioning correctly, ensuring static electricity is not permitted to accumulate on the metal components of the hose which will eliminate the risk of a fire or explosion caused by the discharge of a static spark.
The OhmGuard® is easy and quick to use, does not require any specialist operator training and will indicate, within seconds, if the hoses are safe to use.
ATHEX Industrial Suppliers is authorized by Newson Gale as one of their channel partners, based on our expertise and specialization in static earthing. The mission of Newson Gale is offering technical top-quality products, and giving a good global service. This they achieve through a unique partnership with a worldwide network of channel partners. In this network, ATHEX Industrial Suppliers is your contact for the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg).
For over 25 Years, Newson Gale has been in the business of protecting people and assets from static hazards serving industries where processes that generate significant amounts of static electricity have the potential to ignite flammable or explosive atmospheres.
The Earth-Rite MULTIPOINT may be used to provide status indication for the equipment, or automatically linked back to a control system to prevent operation until the required bonding and earthing conditions have been achieved. The system is ATEX approved for use in hazardous atmospheres and meets all current EC directives.
