Our journey to become a market leader in explosion protection solutions for materials handling equipment and diesel engines began in 1969 when 'Project Pyroban' was implemented by ICI (Imperial Chemical Industries) and our company founder Phil Tyrer, after the accidental release and ignition of a flammable vapour by a diesel engine at its Wilton Plant. This year we celebrate 50 years of ‘Project Pyroban’.
Pyroban (the company), based in Shoreham, West Sussex, helps to keep people safe in a variety of manufacturing and logistics applications, including those in the food and drink, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, chemical, coatings and waste management industries to name a few.
Since November 2017, ATEX compliant lift trucks (and other mobile equipment) have even greater safety requirements, following an update to the EN1755 standard. EN1755:2015 affects the technical makeup of all ATEX 2014/34/EU truck conversions and requires any device or controller carrying out a safety function to fulfil the stated obligations. This means any gas detection system must comply, so it is important to check that your supplier has this covered.
Gas detection on a lift truck is essential in Zone 2 potentially explosive atmospheres to alert drivers to the presence of a gas or vapour. Pyroban recommends the use of active gas detection in Zone 2. Pyroban’s active solution is known as system6000™ and incorporates gas detection to continuously monitor the direct environment around the protected equipment. When a mixture of flammable gas or vapour in air is detected, system6000 gives an audible and visual warning to the driver at 10% Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) propane in air. At 25% LEL it shuts down the protected equipment, automatically eliminating the risk of an explosion. There is only a very small number of Zone 2 sites where this type of active detection system is unsuitable.

  • GET ACTIVE WITH PYROBAN

    GAS DETECTION FOR ZONE 2 HAZARDOUS AREAS
    system6000™ is Pyroban’s solution combining active gas detection for Zone 2 with other specialist protection technologies to help keep people safe. It can be applied to most makes and types of diesel or electric equipment, such as reach, pallet, stacker and counterbalance trucks, VNA and picking equipment. It is designed to help businesses get active in the chemical, pharmaceutical, coatings, beverage, waste and logistics industries, among many others, without compromising on safety.

    ADDED SAFETY SOLUTIONS
    Gascheka is also an active gas detection system which is ideal for designated “safe areas”. When handling potentially hazardous materials in Zone 2, gases can easily cross into nearby ‘safe’ areas and put people in danger. So, Gascheka can be used with any equipment of any age for protection, including LPG powered machines. The system can be fitted on site in less than one day to equipment such as forklifts, cranes, shutters or shrink wrap machines.

    GET ACTIVE SUPPORT ANYWHERE
    At T&L, visitors can also learn more about Pyroban’s best in class service, with active support for customers worldwide with parts, engineer training, technical support and Annual Safety Audits (ASA). These solutions not only help protect people but also keep lifetime equipment costs low.

    50 YEARS OF PROJECT PYROBAN
    Pyroban has been actively protecting millions of workers in potentially explosive atmospheres for five generations. As this year marks 50 years since the start of the original ‘Project Pyroban’, this will also be celebrated at T&L with a draw for €100 Bol.com voucher.
