Plastics and rubber machines - Internal mixers - Safety requirements


This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events relevant to the design and construction of internal mixers during all phases of the machine life cycle (see EN ISO 12100:2010, 5.4), irrespective of their size and of the control modes of the feeding door and discharge door, for production and laboratory applications, when the machines are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Annex A). An internal mixer for production and a tandem mixer with manual feeding begins at the feeding door and ends at the lower edge of the material discharge opening. An internal mixer for production and a tandem mixer with automatic feeding begins at the conveyor, which is an integral part of the machine, and ends at the lower edge of the material discharge opening. A laboratory internal mixer begins at the feeding door and ends at the material container, which is an integral part of the mixer. With regard to noise emission measurement and declaration, only laboratory mixers are covered. Explosion hazards are not dealt with in this document. NOTE Internal mixers usually do not produce explosive atmospheres. Where materials are processed, which may cause an explosive atmosphere, the Directive 2014/34/EU on the Equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX) can be applied. Exhaust systems are not covered. This European Standard is not applicable to internal mixers manufactured before the date of its publication.
