Flange Spray Shields
Flange spray shields are used to protect personnel from spray or drips that might occur at a leaking pipeline joint.
The construction materials consist of Teflon® coated flexible fiberglass cloth, thread and braided reinforced rope. Velcro fasteners are adhered to each end at the overlap to hold the flange spray shield in position while being tied.
Flange spray shields are tailored for each individual flange to allow a minimum of two inches of overlap at the ends and can be drawn down snugly over studs and nuts to the outside diameter of the pipe.
Flange spray shields are often used to cover gasketed joints and unions of pipelines conveying acid, caustics and most hazardous media that Teflon® and glass are impervious to.
