BULLDRILL® REGISTERED TRADEMARK OF BARKOM
Working environments in various industries carry several risks because of their nature in terms of explosion. Using equipment and materials that might cause explosion in these environments will increase these risks even more. To eliminate such dangerous situations, within European Union certain set of atex standards were brought in regulation with 9/94/ec directive. Electric powered products that are used in hazardous environments that have explosion risk must meet directive standards. As applications results by using Ex-proof (Explosion Proof) materials in various mines at many countries were obligated.

In Turkey too, in the industries that have explosion risks using Ex-proof materials were obligated with official gazette numbered 26392 and dated 30.12.2006. Both underground and surface mines that might cause explosion were included to this obligation. Through all these devolopments in the world, Barkom Group broke a new ground in Turkey and manufactured the first Ex-proof Underground Drill Rigs that were specifically designed to achieve drilling operations without creating any risk and take geological samples.

Atex standards are grouped and categorized different groups and categories based on the industry. Group I comprises equipment intended for use in mines. Underground Drill Rigs manufactured by Barkom Group part in Group I and M2 category as they operate in coal mines which are one of the most hazardous environment and in metallic mines that also have explosion risk.
