The innovative Safety Spray Shield design from Flangeguards. Representing over twenty years experience and development, this new design significantly improves upon conventional shielding products
SUREBAND PDT (Pressure Diffusion Technology) uses a specially formulated multi-layered mesh that is held against the flange. The pressure is diffused in a controlled manor thus preventing formation of a mist / vapour cloud. At the point of exit from the shield, the leak takes the form of a safe, vertical drip or stream.
Our leak testing facility has proven that pressure diffusion is required to prevent spray and mist formation. However, many shield designs have no diffusion – and this can actually create a worse leak than no shield at all.
Installation time can often cost more than the shields themselves. SUREBAND is fitted within seconds (rather than minutes). This saves time and money, whilst maintaining maximum safety. Ongoing pipe maintenance requires shields to be removed. Gloves are generally mandatory, so pull-cord knots are typical cut off rendering conventional shields useless. With SUREBAND, operatives are much more likely to re-fit shields (shields are often used within hazardous area zoning calculations, thus failure to re-install the shields invalidates zone classification)
