Standard-Compliant in Hazard Zones
Explosion Protection Measures
DESIGNED ACCORDING TO EXPLOSION GROUP AND TEMPERATURE CLASS
During the design of explosion-proof forklift trucks, Linde engineers use technologies designed for defined explosion groups and temperature classes. Potentially explosive substances are categorized into certain explosion groups depending on how sensitive they are. Trucks for use around substances in higher explosion groups, such as hydrogen, require more extensive protective measures. The substances are also classified according to the temperature at which they become explosive as a gas or vapor. The components of the forklift truck are designed accordingly.
Innovative Technology in Explosion-Proof Design
Due to the close collaboration between the Linde Series Development and Explosion Protection departments, innovative assistance systems, safety features and special equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres are made available in the shortest possible time. There is a wide range of optional special equipment, including the Linde connect fleet management system, Linde BlueSpot, and the new Linde VertiLight working lights. Fleets of standard and explosion-proof trucks can thus be equipped to the same comfort and safety standard offered by all Linde trucks.
You can also rely on our strong service network when using the trucks in a hazardous, potentially explosive atmosphere. Our service technicians are trained in accordance with international explosion protection regulations. They ensure that your explosion-proof truck remains ready for use at all times and that regular statutory inspections are carried out without any problems. As with the provision of spare series parts, Linde service partners worldwide also provide spare parts for explosion-proof trucks from a central supply which is available 24/7. These spare parts remain available long after series production has ended.
