Flange Spray Guard Roll
Flange spray guards are used to protect personnel from uncontrolled spray out from a failing flange joint. They should always be considered when installing any piping system carrying toxic or corrosive chemicals. By controlling the leak and protecting personnel and surrounding plant equipment from chemical contact considerable cost savings can be made. They help to minimise accidents on plant preventing costly plant down time, unplanned absenteeism, HSE investigations etc.
The CRP Spray Guard roll has been designed to be very cost effective, manufactured from durable polypropylene it has very good chemical resistance, is UV resistant and can be reused.
Very easy to install, they are supplied as a roll, the correct length is cut from the roll and then wrapped around the flange joint, they are secured with a stainless steel self tapping screw.
If a spray out were to occur the spray is safely deflected diminishing the force of the spray.
The spray out is deflected not contained so the guard is never pressurised.
Three widths of flange shield will cover most piping installations
The Spray Guards are suitable for use on piping ranging from -40oC to +110oC.
Available in by the metre. The CRP Flange Guard Roll is available in 5 roll widths, 50mm, 70mm, 100mm, 140mm and 180 mm to cover flange joint sizes from ½” up to 24” nominal bore. Typically only 2 or 3 widths can cover most installations on site.
The table below shows the correct width required for typical flange joints and the cut length of Spray shield required for each flange nominal bore.
All data shown for ASME 150 flanges, CRP Flange Guard Roll can also be fitted to DIN flanged piping systems.
