Dangerous, hot or pressurised media are transported through pipelines in many branches of industry. Wherever these pipelines are connected to each other with bolted flanges, there is a danger that a leakage of the dangerous medium will occur, leading to an accident.
This can involve acids or alkalis, high-pressure steam or boiling water, high-pressure hydraulic oil or heat-carrying oil, compressed air or water, to name the most important sources of danger.
Design and operation
Splatter-shield strips in Profile BWQ are made from 0.2 mm thick stainless steel strip of material 1.4541. They are corrugated at right angles to the length. When used with a flange connection, the corrugation along the strip creates many small openings to the outside.
This means that the dangerous medium cannot stream out directly onto a person standing in front of the flange connection. Instead, the stream of acid, alkali or water will hit the interior of the splatter-shield strip and then flow at low pressure through the opening.
