Flexible fire protection coating - ProFlex
The product consists of preformed pads with layers of mineral fibers wrapped in special technical fabrics covered with a protective skin to ensure thermal insulation against high temperatures from hydrocarbon flames, as well as resistance to weather, chemicals and UV rays. Heat-resistant stainless steel straps, washers, brackets and springs are used to make the structure airtight to prevent the ingress of combustion products in the event of a fire. Custom molded to the protected equipment, ProFlex is suitable for applications where space and weight are limited and require fire protection systems that are closely matched to equipment size and dimensions.
ProFlex fire protection systems can be entirely designed on specific customer requirements and modeled based on plant drawings (or after a site inspection, when needed). Exit penetrations for position indicators, plug for electrical cables and pipes, adjustment levers for manually operated pumps, declutch devices, stems and hand-wheels. All those additional features can be supplied as recommended by API 2218 standards. Surface color can also be customized according to plant identification, policies and other accessories (i.e. heatproof grids to assist internal ventilation available upon request).
