Where pipes, pipelines and valves are used to transport gases and liquids under pressure, gaskets are used for sealing flanged connections. Spray shields or flange protectors are covers that are placed around pipeline flanges. This can be done to protect the material or to speed up the detection of leaks, using so-called indicative fabric. The Euro Manchetten spray shields can be used for the transport of liquids through pipes.
PREVENTING LEAKAGE WITH OUR SPRAY SHIELDS
Leaks in pipes are life-threatening, and can easily be caused by the operating pressure, vibration, wear and tear and/or chemical corrosion. Sealing a leak is a costly investment and, in addition to which, leaks can cause injuries to people or damage systems. In order to prevent significant corrosion, it is advisable to provide pipelines with spray shields. This enables the timely detection of leaks in order to repair them as quickly as possible.
Spray shields can be the ultimate solution in industries which use chemical fluids, and where temperatures in the system are extremely high. They are used in the chemical industry, oil refineries, paper processing, steel processing, and all industries where CIP cleaning is used, such as in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
OUR SPRAY SHIELDS CAN BE DIVIDED INTO TWO MAIN GROUPS, NAMELY:
- Chemical resistant and indicative spray shields
- High and low temperature resistant spray shields
CHEMICAL RESISTANT AND INDICATIVE SPRAY SHIELDS
Indicative spray shields serve as an indicator of leaks from flanged connections. This can prevent damage to people and equipment. The discolouration is visible from the outside, allowing rapid detection of a leaking gasket without having to open the covers. In addition, they prevent spray outs.
These types of flange connections are available in various colours and are made of an indicative fabric. The indicative fabric has a chemical resistance, and changes colour when the material comes into contact with certain chemicals, such as acids and alkalis.
They are mainly used in the chemical, food and pharmaceutical sectors.
HIGH AND LOW TEMPERATURE SPRAY SHIELDS
In addition to indicative flange protectors for the transport of liquids, there are also versions for extremely high and low temperatures. These versions are not indicative, but serve to protect the environment against product escaping at high velocity, and to absorb small amounts of product.
These heat or cold resistant spray shields prevent damage to your system or equipment. They also help to protect staff and the environment from the disastrous consequences caused by leaks.
This type of spray shield is mainly used in the energy sector, oil refineries and the steel and paper processing industries.
Our in-house production facilities enable us to manufacture custom designs based on information provided by the customer. These custom designs can be resistant to specific chemicals, certain temperatures or special circumstances. As a result, different sizes and shapes are also available with short delivery times.
At Euro Manchetten, your spray shields are not only made according to DIN and ASA standards, but also according to your specifications, to ensure that all your pipes can be given the necessary protection. Assembly takes place by tightening and tying an integrated cord, which is not only chemically resistant but also able to withstand higher temperatures.
