Oil Rig Blast Protection
Every two to three weeks, all offshore rigs are required to perform BOP/Manifold pressure tests. As a result, high pressure testing requires rig floor operations to shut down which is costly for rig contractors and operators.
Introducing, all new for 2018, SB72FM Series blast curtains and blast blankets engineered specifically for high pressure testing blast protection on gas and oil rigs. With up to hundreds of hours lost to testing every year, the SB Series is designed to reduce the time that rig operations are shut down.
High Pressure Testing Blast Protection
The SB72FM Series is effective against both deformable and non-deformable threats, which are more prevalent and lethal than bullets. Similarly, SB Series blast curtains and blast blankets are UL752 tested to levels 1, 2, 2+, 3 and 3+. Because the SB Series is able to survive ballistics, frag, fire and arc flash protection, it is also employed by USA military and police forces for protection against gunfire and explosions.
BlastTac blast curtains and blast blankets are lightweight, mobile and also durable providing long lasting waterproof protection. The SB72FM Series is equipped to provide reliable safety barriers against high pressure projectiles, blasts and fragments.
FireMax® Fireproof Protection
For high-temperature and fire protection, the SB72FM Series features new FireMax 777 technology. This woven fabric is designed to survive fire, heat and arc flash using a single blast curtain. Because it is truly non-flammable, FireMax material will not burn, melt or ignite and will also shed molten metal, certain chemicals, flammable liquids and other molten substances. Similarly, it is breathable, water resistant and durable in harsh weather conditions.
Independently tested and certified by Chesapeake Testing Labs, located in North Carolina, BlastTac blast curtains and blast blankets are tested in accordance with U.S. Military, UL standards and ASTM International Test Standards. An independent assessment was also performed by DNV GL to confirm that the SB Series is equipped to provide oil rig blast protection.
The BlastTac Line
BlastTac blast curtains and blast blankets are incredibly lightweight and more effective than steel. Every blast curtain and blast blanket is also military grade and manufactured at Breton Industries in Amsterdam, NY. Breton Industries is a U.S. Military Contractor established in 1949.
