The SX-Ex IBC is used in areas where there is a risk of flammable gas or vapour being released into the air. The unit is certified for use in hazard zones 1 & 2 providing the filling goods to be transported fall into explosion categories IIA or IIB.
The SX-Ex provides electrostatic protection via the “SX” metal cladding around the IBC bottle and contains an earthing wire (“Ex”) running from the discharge valve to the pallet. During filling and emptying process the IBC must be earthed.
Handling of the SX-Ex for dynamic load with density up to 1.5 is 2 units high and density over 1.5 is 1 unit high. For static load, units can be 4 high. The SX-Ex is also available in multilayer technology (SX-Ex-EV) with EVOH permeation and oxygen barrier
