We are all in all very satisfied with the tools we saved about a week's worth of work.. Bj rn Erik Dahl Aker Offshore Partner, Material Coordinator Introduction summary Safety Tools Allmet specializes in unique cold work surface preparation and cutting tools. Our equipment follows ATEX guidelines and is safe to use in Ex zones 1. and 2 without a hot work permit. Safety Tools have been safely used around the world for over a decade and offer substantial health safety & environmental benefits. Introduction / 5. there must be a better way . 6 \ Introduction Safety Tools Allmet One day in 1986 Reidar Olsen, founder and CEO the Norwegian Offshore sector. This was done of Safety Tools, was inspecting a large tank from following strict ATEX directives and EU standards. a fishing vessel that had recently been resurfaced. The tool was so revolutionary just categorizing it The tank was riddled with small corrosion points for certification proved a bit difficult - there was no from conventional grinding and welding work that category for it.
4 Was just completed. Hot sparks had burned through and damaged the new surface. The exposed steel Safety Tools soon after introduced their Cutting underneath was corroding and the tank needed to & Weld Seem removal solutions. They were also be completely resurfaced. authorized by the DNV as cold work tools. They have been an important addition to the Safety Those sparks ignited Reidar's quest to find a safe, Tools revolution and are used around the world effective way to manage maintenance and surface cutting cost, increasing productivity and making the preparation work in the North Sea. workplace safer Not to mention avoiding those costly shutdowns. He knew, there must be a better way . Tested by experts Reidar connected with his old friend and engineer Safety Tools were independently tested by the Kaj Sorensen in Denmark. Together they set out to leading offshore explosion experts at GexCon find a new and better way. Many years were spent (subsidiary of Christian Michelsen). They are known engineering a cold solution that would be safe &.
5 Around the globe for their renowned FLACS program and effective. There were many challenges, but - that simulates a highly combustible environment. with hard work and persistence they designed a tool The test involved grinding and cutting different that would change the way surface preparation and types of steel over a wide range of heated explosive maintenance is done around the globe. mixtures. None of the test produced an ignition source strong enough to create combustion or an Statoil became very interested in the cool . explosion. No Hot Sparks! concept after a demonstration. They saw so many possibilities and entered Safety Tools into Statoil's product development program - LUP. Successful Health Safety and the Environment testing was done on Gullfaks C platform in the There are many Health and Safety advantages Northsea. Safety Tools Allmet was further on its way when using Safety Tools. They include; low vibration, to engineering the coolest cutting edge technology low noise, no toxic fumes released (isocyanides) and in the world.
