Mechanical maintenance

Reduce maintenance costs

Non-sparking ATEX certified tool solves a major problem for industries operating in explosive environments. When removing material in Atex gas zones 1 and 2, you can either use non-sparking tools, or hot work where you have to use habitats, firefighters and more. The use of hot work can also cause the worst case scenarios which quickly become very costly, as well as dangerous situations can arise. There may also be a production stoppage when using hot work.

Safety Tools Allmet

ATEX certified tools from Safety Tools Allmet offer many HSE benefits, and not least:

  • No hot sparks. No damage to the substrate and underlying paint/coating.
  • Low heat. Heat varies from 30 ℃ to 60 ℃ for grinding on steel. You can immediately place the palm of your hand on the steel. Even after a long period of grinding.
  • Low vibration. Tested and approved for use over an entire working day. 7.5 hours.

When using tools from Safety Tools Allmet, the requirement is standard PPE.

There are many different material types of steel and titanium. There is no tool that can “do everything”, but we are very close to such a tool. Some of the most common types of steel are carbon steel and stainless steel.

We have ATEX certified tools for both grinding and cutting on the following materials:

  • Stainless steel 316
  • Steel ST52
  • Titan
  • ASTM B265 Titan
  • Austenitic stainless steel
  • 6MO

Mechanical maintenance

The result after grinding with our tools follows the SSPC SP-11 surface treatment standard.

The tool creates a good roughness profile of between 40-75 µm (micrometers) and has been tested independently for surface adhesion by many international companies.

The term mechanical maintenance can be grinding away large amounts of steel, this is done efficiently using our cold ATEX solutions such as A-0058 – Steel Grinding solution. Or A-0057 – All Around with Rough Boy Solution.
