Flange Guard Safety Shields

Pipe safety shields also known as flange guards are used in a variety of industries, where their primary application is the prevention of harmful spray-outs and mist formation from failing pipe joints, of toxic, corrosive and dangerous liquids such as acid, oil or steam.

Safety or spray shields offer the last line of defence. They are not designed to contain the leak indefinitely, but to prevent the harmful spray outs resulting in fire or explosions causing considerable plant down time, capital expenditure and even loss of life.

Installing our safety shields is both simple and quick, requiring no tools.

Novus Sealing can assist you identify Safety Shield solutions for applications such as:
  • Acid and Alkali
  • Steam
  • Oil Mist
  • Thermal Oil
  • Liquified Natural Gas (LNG)
  • Mono-ethylene glycol (MEG)
Flange Guards
SUREBAND STEEL shields use only the highest quality materials. This simple design outlasts all other shield types/materials due to rigorous pressure testing. All 316 ST/ST banding and mesh. Suitable for high pressure and temperature applications. Most important is the internal multi-layered steel mesh, which effectively diffuses pressure releases – thus preventing spray and mist formation. Sureband Steel safety shields are recommended for LNG applications.
All PTFE shield with Pressure Diffusion Technology (PDT) incorporating multi-layered PTFE mesh. No pull-cords, quick connection. Litmus indicator patch included
The PTFE shield is manufactured from three layers of woven Teflon coated fibreglass fabric with a central Teflon scrim for strength. This material is inherently resistant to Ultra-Violet radiation. There is a litmus leak indicator patch contained within a clear Teflon window.
The PVC guard is manufactured from two layers of Polyvinyl chloride laminate and includes a "litmus" leak indicator patch contacted within a clear window. Thus, any leaks will be visually detected.
The PTFE-Clear shield is manufactured from Teflon coated fibreglass, with wide central band of clear Teflon (ECTFE). This permits visual inspection of the valve and any leaking fluid.
