Why Copper Beryllium Is Hazardous ?

Beryllium causes a disease known as Chronic Beryllium Disease (CBD), which primarily affects the lungs and skin and can be fatal in several cases. There are over 2,500 cases of beryllium exposure reported in US. OSHA has regulated exposure to 0.2 ug/m3.

 

OSHA Guideline: For Hazardous Beryllium Material

Chronic beryllium disease (CBD) primarily affects the lungs. CBD may occur among people who are exposed to the dust or fumes from beryllium metal, metal oxides, alloys, ceramics or salts. CBD usually has a very slow onset, and even very small amounts of exposure to beryllium can cause the disease in some people. Some latest research suggests that skin can be a route of exposure and sensitization in chronic beryllium disease.

Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL)

OSHA estimates that the rule could prevent almost 100 deaths 50 serious illnesses each year


To date, the department has paid more than 500 million in compensation to nearly 2500 former or current workers who developed chronic beryllium disease after being exposed to beryllium

Risks associated with using CuBe Material

  • Skin disease

       A skin disease, which is characterized by poor wound healing and a rash or wart like bumps, can occur as a result of the         skin being exposed to beryllium dust.

  • Hazards of Corroded Copper Beryllium Items

       Tools being used in corrosive environment, will tend to corrode.

       Corroded Copper Beryllium could be as much as 135 times more toxic and harmful than Non Corroded Copper Beryllium.

USE COPPER TITANIUM ALLOY

QTi® Copper Titanium Alloy

Copper Titanium is a high-tech innovative technology developed by India.

 

Copper Titanium alloy is manufactured from high purity Copper and Titanium raw materials. It undergoes complex cycles of alloy manufacturing, heat treatments and mechanical processing to achieve its desired properties. 

Copper Titanium alloy was developed to replaced hazardous Copper Beryllium alloys. 

Copper Titanium alloy is ideal where you need a combination of strength coupled with good thermal or electrical conductivity. Copper Titanium alloys also exhibit excellent wear and corrosion resistance.
