Pyroban® is pleased to welcome a batch of eight Hyster® Rider Tow Tractors into the works for explosion proof conversion.

The tow tractors are being converted to a European military explosion proof specification for safe handling of materials within a munitions manufacturing operation.

The new explosion proof tow tractors are pictured here in our new assembly line in Shoreham by Sea, West Sussex, UK.

Military equipment explosion protection

There are many different military applications where flammable gases, liquids (vapours), or combustible/conductive powders are handled. Like any hazardous area application where there is a potential explosion risk, the consequences of ignition can have far reaching effects.

Pyroban provides a range of explosion protection services to help manage the risks and removes the sources of ignition found on mobile equipment operating in ATEX Zone 1, 2, 21 or 22. This includes ATEX compliant, CAT C, and other relevant protection solutions for military applications around the world.

This project featuring Hyster® Rider Tow Tractors follows the five foundations of all Pyroban conversions:

  1. Design for safety – without compromise
  2. Premium quality manufacturing – for tough environments
  3. Low total cost of operation
  4. Lifetime support and care programmes
  5. Advice and consultancy from first contact
