Welker Heated Regulator Now Certified to ATEX Directive and IEC Standards

WELKER > News > Welker Heated Regulator Now Certified to ATEX Directive and IEC Standards

New Certifications Make the HR Safe for Global Use in Ex Areas

Sugar Land, Texas – 11 May 2021 – As an ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturing company, Welker, Inc. values safety and standards. In alignment with these core values and in an effort to increase confidence in hazardous areas around the world, Welker today announces the update of its patented HR-4SS Heated Instrument Regulator has been certified to the ATEX directive and international standards.

The dual-certified Welker HR Heated Instrument Regulator is a single-stage, spring loaded, electrically heated pressure reducing valve designed to provide an analytical system with a conditioned gas sample stream at a safe outlet pressure and temperature. Heat from the thermostatically controlled heating element is efficiently transferred to the sample gas by conduction and convection, ensuring the downstream analytical system is supplied in real time with a properly heated sample gas stream for the most accurate gas evaluation possible.

Welker is no stranger to international safety standards: its HR-4SS Heated Instrument Regulator has been certified by CSA for use in Canada and the United States for over 15 years. Given the growing international need for Ex equipment (i.e., equipment used in hazardous areas) and the increasing acceptance of IECEx certification, Welker decided to pursue dual certification. Now its HR could be confidently used in explosive atmospheres in European Economic Area member states and in International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) member countries around the world.
