EGA MASTER COLLABORATES WITH UNITED NATIONS IN A LANDMINE REMOVAL PROJECT IN IRAQ


The United Nations (UN) has selected us as supplier of non-sparking tool sets for their landmine removal project in Iraq.
This project is being carried out together with the Ministry of Health and Environment and the Mine Action Agency, including the autonomous Kurdistan region.
EGA Master has manufactured fully personalized tool sets of non-sparking and non-magnetic tolos, with the goal of supplying their technicians with the necessary equipment to fulfil the project.

EGA Master manufactures tools for the large Socar refinery in Turkey


The Turkish refinery Socar Turcas Aegean Refinery (STAR), one of the largest oil and gas operations in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, has chosen EGA Master as their brand for non-sparking and industrial hand tools. Among other reasons, EGA Master has been selected for its ability to design and develop for Socar a new valve wrench that has been manufactured according to its specifications.

The STAR refinery is the biggest one built in Europe in decades, and the first one built in Turkey in the last 30 years. It is a 6.3 billion dollar project built by the international consortium of companies formed by SAIPEM, Técnicas Reunidas, GS Engineering, and Itochu.

Through this Project, EGA Master once again demonstrates the value that its wide product range and its flexibility to manufacture to a company´s own specifications represents for large infrastructure projects.
New PRODUCTS

NEW ROBUST TOOL CASES BY EGA MASTER


EGA Master has developed it new Robust tool cases, which allow tools to be transported safely to the field. Their IP67 protection gives them total protection against dust and allows them to be submerged up to 1 m.

In addition, the tool cases allow tools to be accessed easily through removable drawers that enable an “à la carte” configuration thanks to their innovative rail system.

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.
