Metal spray guard protects against spray-outs

22 October 2009

A new type of TUV-approved stainless-steel spray guard is said to protect against dangerous spray-outs of fuel oils such as kerosene, diesel and other flammable liquids from pipes and flanges

The spray guard has been introduced by Allison Engineering.

The design of the Allison safety shield incorporates a steel band and an internal stainless-steel mesh which wraps around flanges and valves. This is designed to sit against the flange, between it and an outer steel band and compresses against it to ensure sprays or leaks are dispersed, while preventing lateral spray.

The mesh acts as a seal which is ‘pinched’ in the middle to form a raised layer that squeezes in the small gap between the two flange faces.

The shield, which is TUV approved and has been pressure tested up to 50 bar, has a quick-release connection, it doesn't require tools or any knots to be tied, so installation and removal is quick and simple. It provides effective spray control on most flange configurations, round, oval or square and regardless of the flange gap, the internal stainless mesh adapts accordingly.
