Active Gas Detection

ATEX Explosion Proof Pallet Trucks & Stackers

Pyroban can convert all makes and models of electric pallet / stacker trucks so that they are safe for use in ATEX Zone 2 certified hazardous areas. Our gas detection protection technology system6000 offers active protection in Zone 2 areas and can be adapted for use on all major OEM electrically powered pallet and stacker trucks.

Pyroban system6000 is a comprehensive safety system which our engineers will adapt to ensure your truck retains all of its original features and ergonomics. This is undertaken at one of our Pyroban conversion centres.

Gas Detection

Your pallet / stacker truck will be fitted with a state of the art gas sensing head to allow it to detect gas when your truck is in operation. There are two different gas sensing heads, Pellistor and Infrared, and the suitable head will be fitted depending on your application and potential gas risks. In the event that a gas is detected, system6000 will shut your truck down, preventing it from becoming an ignition source and protecting it from the risk of explosion.

Control Module

The system6000 control module is fitted on the top of the pallet stacker near the handle and is used to start the system. It provides a continual interface between the truck and the operator and is used to alert them when any gas is detected.


An important part of the system6000 conversion is ensuring that all pallet stacker truck components are protected and temperature monitored. OEM components will be protected or Pyroban ATEX certified components will be used in place of any OEM components. If any temperature monitored reaches an unsafe level, system6000 will automatically shut down the truck so that it is protected from the risk of explosion.
