Non-Sparking Valve Wrench
Non-Sparking Valve Wrench must be used when working in areas with flammable and explosive solids, liquids, and gases.
Conventional steel Wrench tools can produce a spark, resulting in an explosion and fire. Security isn’t a secondary concern in industries across the world.
The majority of companies and businesses have put health and safety, as well as the environment, at the forefront of their SOPs. One of the major challenges in the field of industry is maintaining and operations in dangerous locations where there is a flammable atmosphere of dust and gas.
There are a variety of classifications for dangerous zones – ATEX being among the most frequently utilized classifications. In your facility, If there are any potentially hazardous zones that fall under Zones 0 1/21, 2/22, or Zone 0/20. numerous considerations must be taken into consideration when working in these zones. It is required to utilize equipment that is intrinsically safe.
Hand tools like Valve Wheel Wrench and Valve Key that are used in regular maintenance and operation must be non-sparking in accordance with OSHA/NFPA/FDA/OISD Guidelines. In these hazardous locations, non-sparking tools are used because they do not emit sparks that can ignite gas or dust.
There are numerous case studies in incident reports where standard steel instruments have caused near misses or fatal incidents.
Non-Sparking Valve Key tools are the ideal alternative to traditional steel instruments, and find their application in a potentially explosive environment
Types of Non-Sparking Valve Wrenches
Claw Type Valve Wrench
F Type Valve Wrench
Single End Valve Wrench
C Type Valve Wrench
Valve wheel wrenches come with a long handle that provides leverage, decreasing the force required to close or open valves with the handwheel.
