Explosion proof trolleys

ATEX Trolleys for explosive environments


Morello designs and produces ATEX transporters and explosion proof trailers for Oil & Gas, chemical and mining sectors, paint booths and industries with explosion-proof equipment requiring elimination of any risk of explosion.

Offshore platforms and ships as well as onshore plants require effective on-site handling of large loads. Large engines, heat exchangers and other heavy machinery handled with ATEX trolley must be moved, often in places inaccessible by a crane.

Our explosion proof trolleys and ATEX trucks are designed and customized specifically for these environments that are hazardous and also particularly demanding from an environmental point of view.

Spaces for handling are always extremely limited on offshore platforms and ships. Perfectly suiting this field of application, mobile ATEX transporter is supplied with omnidirectional steering: carousel (rotation around its center), lateral movements (90°), diagonal movements and more steering modes.

Each ATEX trolley is equipped with explosion-proof components, certified according to the area in which they are to operate (Class 1 and 2, Division 1 and 2, Zone 1 and 2, gas and dust).
When necessary the ATEX truck is supplied with certifications from notified bodies.

Considering the adverse conditions in which explosion-proof trolley must operate, it is practically waterproof with protection of the electrical components up to IP69. Morello ATEX transporter can be also equipped with stainless steel components and painted with certified and guaranteed painting cycles to withstand the most adverse environments.

Every platform, every ship and every warehouse have their own peculiarities that involve special needs.
ATEX trucks and explosion proof trailers are fully customizable: dimensions, speed, gradient to climb, type of wheels, superstructures, safety devices and many other features can be defined according to the customer’s needs.
Morello takes great care in assisting the client in choosing the best solution.
