This shield is generally used for applications where sight of the flange/joint must not be obscured. Thus, liquid releases can be seen within the shield, providing visual indication. It should be noted however, that we do not recommend this shield for applications where external liquid/condensation may result in a false indication of leakage.
The shield is suitable for a range of corrosive chemicals due to the technical fabric and Teflon/Kevlar thread used for stitching. See our ‘chemical resistance guide’ for further clarification. For strong acids and higher temperatures and pressures, please consider the standard PTFE or ST/ST shield.
Typically used for acids, caustics, solvents, fuel, lubrication and seal oil applications. In addition to the pipe joint types listed on this website, the PTFE-CLEAR shield can be made to fit a wide range of other fittings such as valves, pumps, expansion joints and hoses (contact us for further details).
