Flange Guards are used in a variety of industries, where their primary application is the prevention of harmful spray-outs and mist formation from failing pipe joints, of toxic, corrosive and dangerous liquids such as acid, oil or steam.
Pipe joint failures have been responsible for a large number of high profile industrial incidents around the world. Acid, oil, and steam jet spray-outs have resulted in many severe personal injuries, either directly or through consequent fires and explosions. Industry regulators have recognized the importance of shielding pipe joints (flanges, valves, couplings, hoses) to prevent jet leaks or the formation of mist. Such spray-outs can have catastrophic effects, in many cases resulting in fire or explosions causing considerable plant downtime, capital expenditure and even loss of life
Smart Shield’s flange guards offer the last line of defense. They are not designed to contain the leak indefinitely, but to prevent the harmful spray out.
Smart Shield's Flange Guards can be used indoors and outdoors. They have undergone rigorous ultraviolet (UV) testing and performed without degradation for approximately 500 hours. This is equivalent to approximately four to five years of outdoor exposure in the tropics and even longer in a temperate zone.
The shields resist ignition and flame propagation.
We can make shielding for a wide variety of valves, expansion joints, pumps, and other non-standard items. Please contact us if you have any such shielding requirements and we will provide a quotation.
