 NON-SPARKING TOOLS

According to OSHA’s Hand and Portable Powered Tools and Equipment Standard [29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910.242(a)], employers are required to provide safe equipment and tools to their employees. It also recommends that employers maintain non-sparking tools in a safe and usable condition every time. The standard directs employers to avoid using non-sparking hand tools directly with acetylene, especially when moisture is present. As this may lead to the formation of explosive acetylides.

Although non-sparking tools are not recommended for direct use with chemicals like acetylene, still there are beneficial in many ways. Learn how by reading below.

A Brief Introduction to Non-sparking Tools

As the name suggests, these tools provide protection against fire and explosions in those environments, where flammable chemicals, fuels, materials, residues or gasses may be present. Many times, these tools are also referred to as “spark-reduced”, “spark-proof”, and “spark-resistant”.

The spark-proof tools are made from various non-ferrous materials such as bronze, brass, Monel metal (copper-nickel alloy), copper-beryllium alloys (beryllium bronze), and copper-aluminum alloys (aluminum bronze). Today, the most used hand tools are created using steel alloys.

3 Reasons to Use Non-sparking Tools in an Acetylene Plant

The following are a few benefits of using spark-free tools in a chemical plant using acetylene equipment or acetylene gas.

1. Corrosion Resistance: Most non-sparking tools made from the fore mentioned metals exhibit strong corrosion resistance due to their material of construction. In addition to acetylene-laden environments, these tools are also ideal for applications where they may come in contact with alkali, acids, and various other types of chemicals.
