Safety spray shields (or flange guards) are designed to contain and detect hazardous spray-outs. They are used to prevent injury to personnel or damage to equipment in the event of a leak or spray-out of acids, caustics, chlorine and other dangerous liquids at piping connections (such as flanges, valves or expansion joints). The spray shields offered by FT Pipeline Systems are made to order to suit your application and are constructed from PTFE, polypropylene, PVC, polyethylene and stainless steel. They are available for all ANSI, DIN, PN, BS flange sizes.
The PTFE cloth safety shields are manufactured from single and multi-layered clear cloth for easy visibility or a coloured cloth with a leak indicating patch. Weep holes located behind the sensitive pH indicating patch allow the indicator to immediately signal a leak and change colour to red in the presence of an acid or green if an alkali. The pH patch is also replaceable which allows the shield to be reused. The shields are UV stabilized and resistant to sun, rain, and fumes. They may be used indoors or outdoors. Our cloth shields are quickly and easily installed by one person without any tools by means of a Velcro fastener and drawstrings which are standard. They are fire and tear resistant with a broad range of chemical resistance.
The expansion joint shields are manufactured from single, clear, and standard PTFE only. They offer the same quality design as other cloth shields with a pH indicating patch to signal leaks and weep holes behind the patch allowing the indicator to change colour. Expansion joint shields are attached by Velcro fasteners and drawstrings and allow for movement of the expansion joint without any change in effectiveness. They are available for all brands and styles of expansion joints.
