AG’s Flange Spray Shields are safety devices that are designed to prevent hot, caustic or toxic chemicals from making contact with plant equipment or personnel and causing injury or harm. They wrap around the flange, effectively stopping wayward spray that can occur in the event of a gasket leak or blow-out such as the one pictured to the right.
