Stainless steel tools cut rust contamination risk, making them ideal for maintenance in health care, food processing, life sciences, electronics manufacturing, pharmaceutical work, marine applications, aerospace facilities and chemical plants.

Four sizes of corrosion-resistant adjustable wrenches expand the selection of maintenance tools that Aven, Inc. supplies for industrial, scientific and health care users.

The newly added 400 series stainless steel models, available with or without PVC grips, are the first adjustable choices from the Michigan-based firm. Sizes are 6 inches (150 mm), 8 inches (200 mm), 10 inches (250 mm) and 12 inches (300 mm).

Aven Adjustable Wrenches lock into position when the user applies pressure, assuring the knurls (thumbscrews) won't loosen and the jaws won't slip. The hardened steel can be autoclaved and tolerates caustic cleaning solutions.

Stainless steel tools reduce ferrous contamination risk and are suitable for machinery maintenance in health care, food processing, biotechnology and other life sciences, electronics manufacturing, pharmaceutical labs or plants, marine applications, aerospace facilities and chemical production. Using materials-compatible tools is an essential element of good manufacturing practice in sensitive environments.

"An ordinary carbon steel wrench could compromise aseptic conditions on stainless steel equipment in critical areas," explains Mike Shahpurwala, president of Aven". "Like our dozens of other stainless hand tools, these are designed for settings where it's essential to avoid rust, chrome particles and other contamination."
