Epoxy Box

Maintaining the integrity of pipelines, including flanges and valves in an Oil&Gas production facility is essential in a potential fire. Durable passive fire protection of pipelines is therefore critical to maintain the desired level of safety in plants containing highly flammable and explosive hydrocarbons under pressure.

The Benarx Epoxy box is ideally suited for passive fire protection of flanges and valves. The light weight construction of perforated stainless steel and intumescent epoxy coating is designed to withstand the toughest hydrocarbon and jet fire scenarios. The Benarx F Epoxy box can be custom made to fit any geometry around the valves or flanges. The prefabricated design with superior mechanical properties saves valuable installation time.

The modular solution with quick locks allows for fast and easy repeated disassembly and reassembly for inspection and maintenance. The Benarx Epoxy Box patented solution is tested and certified for various fire ratings, explosion scenarios, in addition to aging and anti-static requirements for passive fire protection of valves and flanges in an Oil&Gas facility. Designed to meet NORSOK R-004 Class 5 (fire) and various combination classes (fire and acoustic insulation)
