At EUROPACK EUROMANUT CFIA 2019, Pyroban® will be asking visitors ‘Are you active?’, encouraging businesses to consider their approach to keeping people safe in, and near to, zoned hazardous areas. “Many applications in the supply chain from manufacturing and packaging, to transport and warehousing, include Zone 2 hazardous areas where an explosive atmosphere is possible,” says Virginie Waldron, Sales Manager for France, from explosion protection safety company Pyroban.

“In these areas active gas detection on mobile equipment is essential to help protect people – without it operators can be ‘blind’ to the presence of potentially explosive gas or vapour,” she continues.

Zone 2 areas are commonly found in operations in the beverage, logistics, cosmetics, chemical, pharmaceutical, waste and logistics industries, among many others. Active gas detection systems, such as Pyroban’s system6000™, help keep these Zone 2 operations safe by alerting drivers to the presence of an explosive atmosphere.

On Pyroban’s stand at EUROPACK, from 19-21 November in Lyon, France, visitors will be able to see a working system6000 gas detection console, which can be fitted to materials handling equipment. They will be invited to activate the system with an aerosol containing butane gas to see how it visually and audibly alerts drivers of potential danger.

Pyroban’s system6000 is a materials handling equipment conversion which combines active gas detection with other specialist protection technologies to help keep people safe in Zone 2 hazardous areas. 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.

system6000 conversions are completed at the Pyroban factory in the UK in as little as six weeks. With a quicker conversion, the truck can be put into action sooner, maximising uptime, productivity and profitability.

On the Pyroban stand, EUROPACK visitors will also see a live demonstration of Gascheka™ – Pyroban’s active gas detection system for designated ‘safe areas’. Fitted on site to equipment such as forklifts, cranes, shutters and shrink wrap machines, Gascheka can get users active in less than one day, making designated ‘safe areas’ even safer.
