    EXTOOLS®pro is divided into nine categories: "Fuel", "Explosive Atmosphere", "Ignition Hazards", "Protective Systems", "Equipment", "Volumes and Surfaces", "Miscellaneous", "Material Database", "Unit Converter". With the help of this app, both preventive and constructive explosion protection can be analyzed, determined or calculated in detail. Various equipment-specific parameters for e.g. rotary valves, screw conveyors, mixers can also be determined. Furthermore, release rates of liquids / gases and the degree of ventilation of gases / vapours can be determined. The safety parameters of numerous gases and liquids are summarized in the database.

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

    shaping the future of industrial explosion protection.
