Metal Detection Solutions For Hazardous Locations

Metal Detection Solutions For Hazardous Locations (HazLoc)

NEC / CEC Hazardous Locations (HazLoc) Compliant Systems for Class II, Division 2

Locations that contain flammable substances and potentially explosive atmospheres represent a significant source of danger in modern manufacturing facilities. Equipment that is installed in these areas must adhere to stringent and specific compliance requirements.

For environments subject to risk from potentially flammable dusts, METTLER TOLEDO's metal detection offering has been expanded to include the addition of cETLus certified systems, fulfilling the requirements of Class II Division 2 Systems. These systems are certified by Intertek in accordance with:

  • UL / CSA 61010-1
  • UL 60079-0:2013 & UL 60079-31:2015
  • CSA 60079-0: 2015 & CSA 60079-31:2015

Increased Productivity

The Profile platform with full-color touchscreen interface enables simple set-up and operation. Reduced Test Mode feature enables a reduction in the frequency of performance monitoring tests. Easy-to-clean clean designs and integrated test facilities minimize downtime.

Patented Zero Free Metal Zone (ZMFZ) technology allows for the detector to be installed in very tight space, such as between the weigher and bagger, without reduced sensitivity.
