High pressure steam leaks have been responsible for severe personal injury. It is critically important to use only safety shields suitable for the temperature and pressure. Additionally, the design must have the ability to diffuse high pressure.
For steam applications we recommend the following materials;
More than any other shield in our range, beware of cheap copies without adequate mesh or any form of testing. Our 316 st/st guard is well suited to Steam, Fuel oil, Lube oil, Diesel. All our designs are tested on our hydrostatic pressure test facility, test certificates are available on request.
Multi-layered steel mesh
Critical for safety, to avoid spray and unwanted mist formation (which is a consequence of ill-fitting shields with no mesh). The mesh effectively diffuses a pressure release, creating a safe vertical drip.
Provides quick and easy fitting & removal without any special tools. This is very useful for harsh environments where gloves, chem-suits and other conditions make installation difficult
All 316 stainless steel as standard
No weak points, 3.1b material certificates available on request.
