Effective February 1, 2018, IEP Technologies, a member of the Hoerbiger Group, has acquired business operations, the portfolio, patents and trademark rights of Atexon Oy, a company headquartered in Oulunsalo, Finland, specializing in spark detection and extinguishing for industrial explosion protection.
Since the company‘s inception in 2009, Atexon has made a name for itself far beyond Finland‘s borders with innovative early spark detection and extinguishing solutions in dust applications. The development of the owner-operated company has been most remarkable. Its unique portfolio includes spark detection systems, flame detectors, overheat detectors, as well as backfire detectors for industrial applications. Just one of Atexon´s product innovations is its patented Spark Detector with its extra-wide 180-degree field of view and a broad spark detection spectrum. These, together with an optional daylight filter, are unique product characteristics which provide highly reliable protection even under extreme conditions. The decentralized system architecture means simplified installation, reduced costs and through its redundant design provides maximum reliability. Going forward, Hoerbiger will use the IEP Technologies global distribution network to offer the Atexon protection solutions.
