Defender Fire Safe Insulating Set

The DEFENDER FS™ sealing/isolating gasket is designed to withstand the rigorous API standard 6FB (Third Edition) test and therefore provides a solution for those who want to electrically isolate their flange while also requiring protection against the introduction of fire in and around the flange.

Results concluded that the DEFENDER FS™  Gasket was able to maintain its fire safe characteristics throughout the entirety of the test. During the 30 minute burn and 30 minute cool down period, the measured leakage was 0 ml/min versus the allowable rate of 22.765 ml/min. The leakage rate during the re-pressurization cycle was 5 ml/min versus the allowable rate of 22.765 ml/min. These results exceed the performance of other brands.

Based on years of technological experience, the DEFENDER FS™ sealing/isolating gasket not only meets but exceeds the pressure-containing capabilities in standard 6FB (Third Edition) as outlined by API.

The DEFENDER FS™ is a fire safe product that allows a work force at production facilities and offshore platforms extra time to prevent devastation and harm. Seconds count when valves and flanged applications need to be shut down in emergency situations.

The DEFENDER FS™is used by many of our clients to mitigate the effect of galvanic corrosion in dissimilar metal applications.   It is also used where flanges needs to be isolated in conjunction with cathodic protection systems.

Alba Gaskets are the exclusive agent for the DEFENDER FS™ and hold large stocks.
