Protection Applications for flanges and asset interiors during Abrasive Blasting
Shot blasting and sand blasting flanged spools and valves places the critical flange sealing surface at risk if not properly covered. Traditionally, tape masking is used to cover the critical flange face sealing surface during the blast process. Tape masking is extremely time consuming and leaves the potential for portions of the flange face not to be not properly covered. Additionally, not covering the flange opening when blasting valves can allow blast media to find its way onto your valve seats.
Leaking valves equals lost time and money. Precision Piping Products offers specific ANSI rated (peel and stick) flangeDOTS+VCI for all your blast needs. Peel and stick equal a simple, effective solution!
Our flange protection products provide protection for a variety of sandblasting methods including, soda, steel grit, glass bead, bristle, and silica sand or silicon dioxide.
