QTi® Copper Titanium Non-Sparking Gas Cylinder Keys

Copper Titanium Non-Sparking Gas Cylinder Keys are designed for safe working with a cylinder containing flammable gases. Steel keys can create spark and lead to an explosion of the cylinder. Copper Titanium cylinder keys are available in various sizes to suit all types of valves.

Why use Non-Sparking Gas Cylinder Keys?

Gases that have a lower flash point (less than 37.8 C or 100 F) are classified as flammable gases that will ignite in the presence of ignition source.  Flammable Gases stored under pressure in cylinders increases the risk of an explosion. Steel Tools or Cylinder Keys when struck create a high ignition spark sufficient to ignite even small traces of flammable vapors present in its surroundings. 

Non-Sparking Cylinder Keys are manufactured from special high strength Copper Titanium alloy, which is certified for use with flammable gases.
