ContraFlex® pool fire protection jackets can provide hydrocarbon pool fire protection for up to 180 minutes in line with UL 1709. The flexible insulation and protection system- can be easily removed and replaced for effective equipment maintenance.
Hydrocarbon pool fires reach temperatures of up to 1,100°C and test standards stipulate both insulation integrity and temperature limits of the equipment during the fire scenario. ContraFlex® hydrocarbon pool fire jackets have been tested on both structural steel and junction box assemblies and have been approved by ABS and DNV. The extensive range of testing means that ContraFlex® may be used on piping, flanges, ESDV valves and actuators, vessels, heat exchangers, pipe supports, junction boxes, cable trays and control panels.
- Flame retardant outer cloth, alkali free silicone polymer coated material.
- Hydrocarbon pool fire PFP Jackets range from 61mm to 65mm. The jacket infill depends on the fire scenario and can be built up from a mixture of insulation, jet fire resistant materials and SS304 mesh.
- Flame retardant inner cloth, alkali free silicone polymer coated material.
- Third party certification and inspection: ContraFlex® hydrocarbon pool fire jackets hold ABS and DNV certification
- Low maintenance and inspection time: ContraFlex® jackets can be safely and easily removed for ease of maintenance to the equipment and therefore keep downtime to a minimum. Furthermore, PFP jackets can be removed and refitted by maintenance personnel directly, excluding the requirement for specialist sub-contractors
- Low installation time: ContraFlex® jackets are flexible and therefore easier to handle and install in relation to conventional cladding and enclosure type systems, therefore reducing installation time
ContraFlex® hydrocarbon pool fire jackets have been tested to the following fire scenarios:
- H60 – Jacket minimum thickness 60mm – minimum weight per m2 13.1kg/m2
- H120 – Jacket minimum thickness 61mm – minimum weight per m2 13.1kg/m2
- H180 – Jacket minimum thickness 61mm – minimum weight per m2 13.1kg/m2
Individual material layers have been tested for Combustibility, Flammability and Toxicity in accordance with IMO MSC 307(88) Appendix 1, Part 1, 2 and 5.
