Dantherm Filtration Receives ATEX Certification

August 3, 2010
In addition to having achieved ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications, Dantherm Filtration has become the first dust collection company in the U.S. who is approved to manufacture ATEX certified products. ATEX stands for ATmosphere EXplosive. It can be utilized to meet NFPA standards and is an internationally recognized certification for products used in potentially explosive environments.
