The most efficient alternative for power tool surface treatment in explosive areas. Cold Work Approved. No hot sparks. Low temperature. Low noise <85dB. Low vibration 2.5 m/s2.  

R.U.S.T. pneumatic grinding tools are tested according to EX directive for use in explosive atmospheres.

The energy level in the grinding prosess is kept very low due to the low rotating speed, the properties of the tungsten carbid studs and the use of cooling water, that prevent heated particles.

For safety reason it’s strongly recommended to use the water-cooling feature, when used in EX areas.

R.U.S.T. grinding tools for surface and mechanical treatment.

By using R.U.S.T. cold work grinders you will achieve the best preparation grade faster than any other EX mechanical tool in the marked. R.U.S.T. efficiently remove rust, coating (paint, chartek, silicone/rubber, bitumen etc.), scale, welding seams and weld spatter, salt and other contaminations on the surface.

Prepare the Surface for good adhesion, roughness and cleanliness.
Test results:

 Adhesion: 10-25 MPa (ISO 4624).
Surface roughness profile: 75 – 105 microns(2.9 – 4.1 mils).
Surface cleanliness preparation grade: SSPC-SP11to Bare Metal (American Standard) (After Swedish standard ISO 8501-1 most similar to St.3). Surface Preparation standards

R.U.S.T. offers a cost efficient alternative to the existing methods and other mechanical tools in the marked. Grinding disk and rotary burrs are made of tungsten carbide – long working lifetime. R.U.S.T. is perfect for small and medium- sized maintenance tasks, the power tools is easy and safe to operate.

RUST grinding tools for use in explosive atmospheres and hazardous environments. Ideal for work on offshore platforms, onshore, oil and gas refineries, chemical and pharmaceutical plants, tankers, gas carriers, power plant, Railway sector and more. 

The RUST Tool kit A contains: Two pneumatic machines (Angle & Straight), 4 x Tungsten Carbide rotating burrs, one grinding disc with 24 Tungsten Carbide studs + 7 spare studs, service tools and user manual. Weight: 8 kg
