Berylco Safety Tools will not emit sparks that can ignite volatile materials, chemicals or gasses.Tests have shown that our tools cannot produce a spark to ignite carbon disulfide, which has the lowest ignition point of any substance. Berylco Safety Tools are certified nonsparking by the Factory Mutual Research Corporation.
Berylco Safety Tools are made of high strength beryllium copper which is a copper-based alloy containing approximately 1.8% beryllium. The alloy can be heat treated to hardness ranges of Rockwell C35-45, with tensile strengths up to 190,000 p.s.i. This allows our tools to be precisely forged, cast, formed, machined and hardened to strength levels that cannot be achieved in tools made from aluminum, bronze or brass.
As a result, Berylco Safety Tools provide maximum torque and shear strength plus exceptional wear-resistance.

Nonmagnetic Berylco Safety Tools are nonmagnetic as defined by MIL-M-19595. They are ideal for applications where magnetic disturbances must be avoided and eddy current effects must be minimized. Using our tools near or with precision magnetic equipment will not induce or aggravate electrical disturbances, or disrupt instrument settings.

Corrosion Resistant Berylco Safety Tools are durable in severe corrosive environments. They exhibit excellent resistance to corrosion in chemical, acidic, alkaline and atmospheric conditions that can compromise the performance of steel or iron-based tools. Our tools are ideal for marine applications where corrosion resistance to saltwater and nonsparking capabilities around explosive vapors on ships are critical considerations.

Berylco Tools Are Safe Normal daily use and handling of Berylco Safety Tools presents no known health hazards to your workers. If you have questions or concerns about employing beryllium copper tools in your operation, please feel free to call our safety representative at 1-800-523-8268.
