Explosion proof

EX is the range of Verlinde products (Konecranes group) selected on purpose by Vinati to offer its customers the most extensive quality assurance for anti-sparks cranes.
Verlinde EX components are used in mining, chemical, oil and petrochemical factories both in Italy and abroad, as they guarantee the safety and performance that you need, in compliance with ATEX regulations.

Our technical office can follow the development of the project and provide the appropriate solution.

YOU MAY NOT KNOW THAT... ...there are no sparks unless the crane is shifting to more than 60m / min.
...bronze wheels generate more sparks than iron wheels when the rails are made of oxidized iron.
