Get more done with atex approved mobile phones!
It is not uncommon to run with a statement that ‘communications is the backbone for any business’. Today both business and personnel lives are fast passed, evolving around communication, and the immediacy to access critical data, on a near minute by minute basis. Therefore such a statement you could say is a given.
However, as easy as it is for you and I to reach for our smartphone, it is all-together not so easy for those courageous people risking life and limb to provide you with the oil in your tank, hot water in your tap and gas in your cooker. For those companies operating across some of the world’s most inhospitable remote, hostile, dangerous and hazardous locations, the choice of which type of mobile solution is both limited and ever critical to protect user and increase efficiency.
Constant communications and access to time sensitive information and data capture across the project site keeps the oil and gas flowing, and keeps the exceptional engineers operating in the toughest of conditions safe. Airacom atex approved mobile devices, are specifically designed for hazardous area working. Offering the highest levels of explosion proof protection, with globally recognised certifications of intrinsic safety. A single spark in areas which have a high concentration or build-up of potentially explosive gases, mists, vapours and dusts can be catastrophic. In the event of an explosion the result could mean massive loss of life, and devastating affects to company property and the destruction of entire sites.
In order to greatly minimise this risk. Countries globally work within set series of regulations and safety parameters known as ‘intrinsic safety’ standards. Atex approved mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets have been built to conform to strict regulations. Emitting low amounts of heat and no ability to cause a spark, even if there is a short circuit. Equipment has to perform and conform before it is allowed to safely operate across some of the worlds most volatile and dangerous hazardous areas typically found within oil and gas, mining and chemicals.
The Oil and Gas Mobility Journey
The oil and gas industry is becoming increasingly competitive with oil price volatility continuing to dominate headlines, heavy regulation and fast-changing dynamics, means managing both offshore and onshore operations comes with some serious challenges for oil and gas companies.
As a result oil and gas companies are turning to mobile based solutions to deliver on-demand business intelligence (BI), to drive improved communications and data flow from the field to the office, and gaining increased levels of efficiency and field-worker productivity.
Airacom provides explosion proof mobile phones, intrinsically safe smartphones and tablets which meet and pass worldwide certification standards. Certified atex zone 1 mobile devices with the highest levels of certification within Europe, the USA, Canada, Russia and Australia, for safe operation within Ex hazardous areas.

Connecting the Field to the Project Site
With oil prices at their current levels, oil companies must learn how to do more with less. Gain greater returns on investment by driving change, and maximise every opportunity, every employee and every asset to stay competitive. Targeted investments in mobility can enhance efficiency and provide rapid payback attractive even in a constrained investment environment.
