New oil platform market opportunities
The systems will be installed on two crane cabins for use on oil platforms, each requiring a wiper system for one front and two side windows.
“Up until now, we have been synonymous with equipping the RNLI’s Shannon Class lifeboats and the Royal Navy but ATEX certified DuroWipers is a new market for us. It is real kudos that Excellift has sought out DuroWipers quality based on our reputation for both quality and sustainability coupled with a three-year warranty.”
“We’re keen to grow this new market as our wiper systems coupled with ATEX certification offers a superior quality product for a safe working environment”, DuroWipers, MD Noel Gould.
DuroWipers are designed to operate in hazardous areas, with the presence of gas, vapour or dust and in all types of industrial machinery with a 24V and maximum operating current of 3A.
DuroWipers can work in an ambient temperature range from -30ºC + 60ºC allowing it to work in hot areas with aggressive ambient conditions.
The company’s innovative, patented design lengthens the life of wipers and reduces maintenance costs. The popularity of its design and the size of orders are growing exponentially.
ATEX is a European Union directive from the European Committee for Standardisation, it’s a gold safety standard that covers: “Equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.”
