Drill safely in flammable environments. These drill bits help you meet OSHA requirements in areas such as mines, refineries, and chemical plants where flammable materials are present.
Do not use these bits in direct contact with acetylene. Dust from beryllium copper can be toxic, so don't grind or sharpen them.
The tools used in explosion-hazardous places must be made of special materials that do not produce frictional sparks, impact sparks, or even hot, high-temperature surfaces. Such tools are called explosion-proof tools.
Explosion wrenches, explosion screwdrivers, and vices are often used together, causing "slip" problems. In order to prevent this problem, the blade of the screwdriver should be selected correctly, and the vise should ensure proper tightness.
Beryllium Bronze (aka Beryllium Copper) is high strength, non sparking, and non metallic
Specialized applications include: hazardous environments, aerospace, musical instruments, and precision measurement devices
