Case Study – Vacuum Lifter in ATEX Zone for Suez
Suez Water Technologies is a part of the Veolia group now. It is a world leader in water and wastewater treatment technologies. We were contacted by Suez to solve an ergonomic lifting solution for their UAE plant which involved installing the equipment in an ATEX zone requiring all components to be ATEX certified and suitable for operation in such an explosion proof.
Modern Eastern supplied TAWI’s ATEX certified Vacuum Lifting Solution mounted on an overhead gantry and saving valuable space on the factory floor. The custom designed full stainless steel construction suitable for Ex Zone 1 is used presently in Suez to ergonomically lift heavy sacks. As always, the new vacuum lifting solution converted a two person job to a single person job and reduced employee fatigue and increased process efficiency.
