We are IND EX®.

The organization IND EX® (Intercontinental Association of Experts for INDustrial EXplosion Protection e.V.) was established 2009 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. IND EX® consisting of 50 members and it has seen continuous growth since its inception. IND EX® retains and works with top experts in explosion safety from all over the world. Members come from different professional backgrounds such as plant engineers, safety consultants, equipment manufacturers, service providers and universities. Explosions can occur in a number of different production processes where the combination of an ignition source, oxygen and dust or gas are presented.
  • The consequences of explosions can be catastrophic:
  • extensive cost
  • production downtime
  • loss of market share
  • loss of facilities and equipment
  • and most importantly, loss of life.
To prevent such occurrences, IND EX® has assembled this team of specialists to address the safety needs of industries at risk of explosions. To achieve this goal, IND EX® has laid out a set of commitments to achieve its objectives.
  • Commitments:
  • Assimilation and interpretation of the existing sets of international guidelines to gain an overarching understanding of explosion related regulations. Every employer has technical and practical challenges to interpret explosion regulations.
  • Support research in explosion protection that will lead to the production of new and innovative technologies aimed at reducing the risk of explosions.
  • Organize yearly congresses and symposia to facilitate knowledge transfer in explosion protection IND EX® has become the name for expertise, experience and knowledge in explosion protection.

IND EX® presents

Get it and be convinced.

EXTOOLS®pro is the "universal tool" for such safety officers, experts and technical consultants, who must deal extensively with the topic of explosion prevention and protection. It is based on EN, IEC, ISO Standards, VDI Guidelines and VDI Reports, research work, theses, publications and technical books. EXTOOLS®pro is separated in seven categories: “Fuel”, “Explosive Atmospheres”, “Ignition Hazards”, “Protective Systems”, “Equipment”, “Volumes and Surfaces” and “Miscellaneous”. With this tool the explosion prevention and, for the most part, the explosion protection can be analyzed in detail. It is possible to evaluate the ignition and explosive behavior of fuels in order to estimate the explosive atmosphere. Based on this knowledge the preventive measures can be defined in order to calculate device resistance, volumes and surfaces as well as to determine various device related parameters.

EXTOOLS®pro runs on all modern Windows® 7 or higher.

shaping the future of industrial explosion protection.
