Marstair and Ex-Machinery sign trading agreement

Marstair and Ex-Machinery Explosion Proof Equipment have signed a partnership agreement to provide ATEX equipment for even the harshest environments.

Product release ATEX zone 1 condenser

The ATEX zone 1 certified Ex-M MCUA Condenser is the first new product release as a result of the partnership. The purpose of the first order of Ex-M MCUA Condensers is to cool mobile containers in ATEX zone 1 and 2 hazardous areas.

Increasing demand for ATEX HVAC equipment

As a result of growth in the marine and oil and gas industry and focus on safety and compliance there is an increasing demand for ATEX bespoke HVAC solutions. From July 2003, new equipment intended for use in gas explosive atmospheres must comply with ATEX regulations. By now, industrial companies and authorities are very aware of explosion safety risks and demand for ATEX-certified equipment.

Reliable performance in the harshest environments

Other key issues in the marine and oil and gas industry are corrosion protection and reliable performance in extreme ambient temperatures. A combination of intelligent explosion protection methods and a condenser with copper tubing and copper fins and stainless steel casing ensures reliable and safe performance, even in the harshest environments. The Ex-M MCUA copper/copper condenser prevents any galvanic corrosion. As a result the technical lifespan is five times longer compared to a standard explosion proof condenser. Optional use of R134A refrigerant guarantees a reliable steady cooling performance at high ambient temperatures. This ensures there are no shut downs due to excessive heat and no loss of cooling capacity.

Chris Chisman, director of Marstair, said: “Marstair is thrilled to be working in partnership with Ex-Machinery. Ex-Machinery’s extensive knowledge and expertise on ATEX and explosion proof equipment combined with Marstair’s ability to provide bespoke marine HVAC and refrigeration equipment is a very powerful combination. This partnership will allow both companies to offer a greater range of solutions to the market and is well-aligned to both companies’ growth strategies within the marine and oil and gas HVAC and refrigeration sectors.”

Gido van Tienhoven, managing director of Ex-Machinery, added: “Marstair’s 45 years of experience and the dedication of the Marstair team members are valued by us as an excellent basis for a prosperous cooperation. We are very pleased with this opportunity to take Ex-Machinery’s portfolio to the next level by providing our customers with ATEX equipment based on the wide range of Marstair’s bespoke HVAC solutions.”

Online form from A-Gas helps make the low GWP switch easy

A-Gas has introduced an online refrigeration selection form Refrigerant Suggestions to make the switch from high GWP refrigerants to low GWP refrigerants as easy as possible. The F-Gas Regulations are forcing installers and end-users to look at greener options and make more efficient use of their refrigerants. But the requirements of each system are different and finding the right low-GWP alternative can be a challenge for even the most experienced refrigeration specialist.
