For the Side Channel Blowers, the Multistage Centrifugal Blowers and the Centrifugal Fans to be used for extraction or compression of combustible gases, such as biological or natural gas, in hazardous places classified as Zone 1, MAPRO® has voluntarily chosen to request the Product Certification.
In compliance with the scheme developed by the Certification Body ICIM, MAPRO® has therefore decided to carry out, on the manufacture of the Products listed above, tests and controls of higher level than the minimum required for the CE marking according to the Directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX).
This voluntary certification has been requested as reasonable demonstration of well superior quality of the MAPRO® Products compared to the average of similar products sold on the market and it represents a qualitative complement certified by a third party.
In compliance with the Normative Documents of the ICIM Certification Scheme, MAPRO® has therefore obtained, for the Side Channel Blowers, the Multistage Centrifugal Blowers and the Centrifugal Fans, the Product Certification No. ICIM - VEX-000004-00 and is authorized to apply on said machines the ICIM Mark provided for this Certification.
The verification of the maintenance of the compliance of the Products with the requirements of the reference Normative Documents is guaranteed by regular surveillance visits (at least once a year) of ICIM inspectors.
