The article "Considering the Mechanical Aspects of ATEX" appeared in the December 2012 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
For the past 30 years or more, designers have paid due diligence to the electrical aspect of hazardous atmosphere equipment design, but have often ignored the mechanical side. In recent years, the mechanical aspects of ATEX design have increasingly come to light. Not only do electrical power transmission products, but also mechanical power transmission products need to comply with the ATEX directive.
