Flange Safety Spray Guards
Flange spray guards are used to protect personnel from uncontrolled spray out from a failing flange joint.
CRP’s PTFE lined products are mainly used to convey very corrosive products, safety regulations stipulate that consideration must be made for reducing the effects of leaks to the environment and personnel, CRP safety shields are a recommended addition to any piping system and should be considered in any site safety reviews.
Whilst our safety shields are not designed to contain the line pressure of a leak they are utilised to dissipate the force of any liquid spray-out or emitted vapour mist allowing the leak to be more readily contained and managed.
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.
CRP offer two types of flange guard, a PTFE coated fibre glass fabric tied type and a cost effective Spray Guard Roll which can be cut to length on site and fitted around the flange joint. As well as flange spray shields we stock Bellows Guards to suit our range of FluoroFlow expansion bellows.
Both types of flange shield are very easy to install.
If a spray out were to occur the spray is safely deflected diminishing the force of the spray.
CRP recommend that flange safety spray shields should be fitted to all lined pipe flange joints.
