CS Unitec's new Non-sparking Hand Tools are manufactured from Copper-Beryllium or special Aluminum-Bronze alloys that are certified for safe use in areas where hazardous, flammable or combustible vapors, liquids, dusts or residues may be present. This line of safety tools consists of hammers, flange wedges, striking wrenches, pipe wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers, shovels and other hand tools. They comply with the ATEX Directive stating that no tools which can cause sparks are permissible in Ex Zones 0, 1 and 2 (Gas, Mists or Vapors); Zones 20, 21 and 22 (Dusts) and M1 and M2 for mining. Each tool is laser engraved for the proper Ex Zone classifications indicating the zones for which it can be used. These Non-sparking Safety Tools from CS Unitec are specifically designed to eliminate the risk of sparks at sites where explosive atmospheres may be present. Appropriate applications include oil drilling platforms, petrochemical plants, oil refineries, natural gas installations, ammunition plants, mining and other industries where non-sparking safety tools are required. The non-magnetic feature of these alloys also make them ideal for working on special machinery with powerful magnets such as MRI machines. CS Unitec's safety tools are forged for the highest quality in hand tools. They are corrosion resistant.
