Saving energy safely

At long last, ATEX applications can now also enjoy the advantages of modern EC technology. ebm-papst has become the first manufacturer in the world to develop highly efficient GreenTech EC fans specifically for Ex use.

Our widely acclaimed HyBlade® and RadiPac product ranges formed the basis for this development.


The advantages of Ex fans with GreenTech EC technology from ebm-papst:

  • On average 30% lower energy consumption than with AC technology
  • Perfectly matched components
  • Quick and easy commissioning
  • Declaration of conformity for the entire fan (incl. the motor and electronics)

Atmosphère Explosive. The European explosion protection directive.

ebm-papst Ex fans are based on the successful 3 kW GreenTech EC external rotor motor and are tested and certified in accordance with the European product directive ATEX 94/9/EC. This means they satisfy all the requirements for devices for use in explosion hazard areas.

Our axial and centrifugal Ex fans are suitable for equipment group II (explosion protection areas, except for mining) as well as for the gases and vapors substance group of explosion group IIB.

Our Ex fans can be used in hazard zones 1 and 2. They thus conform to category 2G (ATEX) with equipment protection level Gb (EN 60079-0).

The facility operator is responsible for the on-site classification of the hazard zones in accordance with the workplace directive ATEX 1999/92/EC. The manufacturer, i.e. ebm-papst, is responsible for the applicable device categorization.
