High Temperature Flange Shields
Flange spray guards have the important function of protecting personnel from uncontrolled spray out from failing flange joints.
Spray guards are suitable for high pressure piping systems operating up to 2900 PSI, and at temperatures of up to 2012°F. We can supply stainless steel flange guards that can be quickly and securely installed with an adjustable stainless steel clamp. A layer of stainless steel netting is held around the flange to dissipate the line pressure in the event of a leaking joint.
These shields are often used on hot oil systems, and can be commonly found on ships. Most shops use flange shields in their engine rooms to protect crew members from accidental media spray out.
CRP can supply shields for large diameter flanges up to class 600.
