ATEX Compliancy for Merridale Auditor Tank management systems
All Merridale Auditor GT tank management systems are now being produced to be ATEX compliant. This standard has been implemented in line with Merridale’s declared commitment for manufacturing all fuelling equipment to the highest standards.
Customers are assured that Merridale contents probes are intrinsically safe, as required for use with diesel and gas oil installations. To achieve this, key components are protected by ‘Zener’ barriers, which are designed to limit the amount of energy that could appear in an electrical circuit.
All systems are now installed to exacting standards to ensure that fleet operators can be confident that fitting Merridale equipment is in effect, adopting best practice methodology.
Development of the Merridale Auditor GT ATEX compliant tank management system compliments the use of Merridale ATEX certified fuel pumps and integral (fuel pump and management) units.
Risk Assessment managers can be assured that when purchasing and installing Merridale equipment their facilities will be compliant with the appropriate standards set out by DSEAR and the HSE.
When reviewing equipment from alternative suppliers, fleet operators should be mindful of the potential risks involved by accepting equipment that doesn’t meet these standards.
