Non-Sparking Tools - 1000V insulated tools



Non Sparking Tools means the alloys used will never create sparks with enough energy to create the ignition of an explosive atmosphere. In that way, EGA Master Non Sparking Tools are 100% safe, being certified by the EU approved laboratory BAM (German Federal Institute). On top of the best and safest alloys, EGA Master provides to its non sparking tools the deep knowledge of making efficient, productive, ergonomic and safe tools; all certified ISO 9001-200, by the most famous institution for hand tool manufacturing, TUV-Rheindland/Germany.


ATEX Tools



ATEX Tools : EX designation ATEX (Atmosphere -Explosive)


Non Sparking - Insulated Tools



Insulated tools: There are some zones which present 2 different H&S risks: electric voltage, together with an environment that may have an explosive agent present (such as gases or dusts). Zones like this appear in the production of batteries, battery repair and maintenance, electrical maintenance in ATEX areas...

The Non sparking 1000V insulated tools range of EGA MASTER provides safe insulated tools, certified according to international IEC EN 60900 standard, while ensuring complete non sparking properties for ATEX classified zones. Manufactured in Aluminum Bronze or Copper Berylium alloys, both of them are approved by the German Federal BAM Institution, accredited by the European Union for the certification of products to be used in explosion hazard environments.

Additionally, EGA Master offers the possibility of including customized foam trays designed to incorporate the exact composition of tools required by the customer. Such customization reduces the probability of tool loss through better organization and tool management.

EGA MASTER EXPANDS ITS PRODUCT RANGE WITH NANOTECHNOLOGY BASED SOLUTIONS FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF FLOORS AND SURFACES

EGA Master extends is already wide product range with its NTS Nanotools Solutions range, which includes two main innovative products with a nanotechnology base. The NTS Floor Coat and the NTS Metal Protect are ideal for the maintenance and protection of floors and surfaces from dirt and corrosion.

The NTS Floor Coat is a solution with water, oil and stain repelling properties that helps maintain and therefore extend the life of those surfaces where it is applied. It is a solution that is highly resistant to abrasion and friction, and is suitable primarily for horizontal surfaces. However, it can also be applied in porous and low porous vertical surfaces.

The NTS Metal Protect is a solution that protects metallic surfaces against dirt and oxide. It also prevents polluting particles or dirt debris from adhering to the surface, simplifying cleaning and maintenance activities. Furthermore, it offers protection from corrosion and impacts, extending the life of the components on which it is applied (e.g. valves, fasteners etc).

New EGA Master refinery pipe and valve wrench

New EGA Master refinery pipe and valve wrench allows operator to use just one tool for several operations (grip, hit and open/close valves). It reduces the weigh carried by operator and reduce tool investment.

EGA Master total safety slogging wrench

EGA Master new total safety slogging wrenches are specifically designed for avoiding injuries in hands and fingers, main source of accidents during hand tools use.

Thanks to the use of special O-ring seal, looseness between tool and nut is avoided, and friction between them is increased. Thus, the wrench does not need to be held with the hand during its use, avoiding any possibility accident. Besides, new total safety slogging wrenches include removable shackle for tethering it while working at height works.
