Sapeg RUST ATEX Grinder

RUST ATEX Grinding Tools for surface treatment in explosive atmosphere.
No explosive danger. No hot sparks. Low temperature.




RUST ATEX pneumatic grinding tools are self-certified by SAPEG, based on independent test reports and a technical file lodged with DNV GL Presafe. This is in accordance with the ATEX Directive for non-electrical equipment. ExII2GcIIAT3
The energy level in the grinding process is kept very low due to the low rotation speed on the grinder and the properties of the tungsten carbide studs, preventing heated particles.

RUST ATEX Grinding tools for surface and mechanical treatment.
By using RUST™ cold work grinders you will achieve the best preparation grade faster than any other ATEX approved mechanical tool in the market. RUST™ efficiently removes 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-SP11 to Bare Metal (American Standard)
(After Swedish standard ISO 8501-1 most similar to St.3).
