EGA Master non-sparking tools

Monday, 30 January, 2017 | Supplied by: RS Components Pty Ltd

EGA Master non-sparking tools are designed for use by maintenance engineers in hazardous or potentially explosive environments, where a spark could ignite gases, chemicals or other volatile substances and materials.

The non-sparking tools generate low-energy sparks that are always below the ignition energy of the hazardous substances — either gas or dust — that are present in the environment, making them safe for use in explosive environments.

The range includes screwdrivers; sledgehammers; socket sets; socket wrenches and other socket accessories; combination, adjustable and non-impact spanners; pliers including combination and long-nose types; cutters; and a wide selection of hex-key sets.

These tools are manufactured from commonly used materials to deliver non-sparking abilities, including copper-beryllium alloy (Cu-Be) and aluminium-bronze alloy (Al-Br). In addition to being non-sparking, these materials have non-magnetic properties and are also highly corrosion resistant, making them suitable for marine work in particular.

A key target market for these tools is the oil and gas industry, as well as other industries with potentially explosive environments such as in flour or paper mills where a high concentration of fine combustible particles in the air can cause combustion under certain circumstances, along with the presence of an oxidant such as oxygen and an ignition event.

The use of non-sparking tools, in conjunction with other vital preventive measures, can help to remove the ignition component in this equation. Other target industries for these tools include aerospace, marine, automotive and mining, as well as other important sectors such as chemicals, petrochemicals, paint manufacturing and brewing, among many others.

All tools are marked with the respective alloy in order to ensure that the right tool is used. All tools are certified by the German BAM laboratory, which offers a third-party assurance that the tools are safe to be used in explosive environments.
