Cable & Hose Thermal Protection
Many hoses in various industries run hot with steam or oil. In such cases there is often a need to insulate the hose to control heat loss and often provide protection to personnel that may come into contact with these hot hoses. In addition, cables / wiring running close to hot areas may require additional thermal protection.
One area where cables often need additional protection is steel works or other metal smelting facilities. In these situations it is essential to protect hose, pipes, and wiring from molten metal splash and reflective heat.
Where the hoses are already operating in situ and cannot be taken off line, Pyroglass offer retro-fit sleeves with hook and loop closures.
Pyroglass offer a range of solutions including high grade red oxide silicone coated glass sleeves sometimes referred to as Firesleeves. Other products in the range include thick wall knitted glass fibre or basalt sleeves, silicone coated glass tapes (to be used as a wrap) and self-amalgamating tapes for sealing the red oxide sleeve or taped ends.
