Flange Band Protectors

Flange band protector and nut caps from Drake SpecialtiesFlange Band Protectors are designed to protect flange internal areas including the flange faces, stud bolts, and gaskets, from environmental elements that can cause corrosion. Flange protectors by Drake Specialties are used in the oil and gas industry, refining, gas distribution systems, and any place where it is necessary and desirable to protect flanges and joints from salt spray, chemicals, sand, debris, and other rust causing external factors.

NOTE: Flange Protectors do NOT prevent lateral spray-outs, and therefore should not be used as safety devices. Flange Spray Shields are designed for spray protection and containment; click on the link for more details.

For a complete flange protection system, we recommend including Drake Specialties Nut/Bolt Protector Caps and Corrosion Inhibitor Grease. The Nut/Bolt Protector Caps are plastic caps that snap tightly over nuts to protect stud ends and nuts from corrosion. The caps allow for easy unbolting of flanges and valves. Click our link here, Nut/Bolt Protector Caps, for additional details.

Filling the flange cavity and Nut Caps with non-conductive Corrosion Inhibitor Grease displaces air and moisture to provide extra corrosion protection. Grease is available in 14oz. cartridges and 5 gallon pails.
