FireNut - Topside Protection - Topside - Trelleborg Offshore

FireNut™

In refineries, offshore oil installations or wherever hydrocarbons are transported, the pipes are flanged and held together with nuts and bolts. In case of fire, the flanges and pipes should maintain the same level of integrity to avoid escalation. Traditional protection is to capsule the whole valve and flanges in a fire-insulated metal box - a bulky, heavy and expensive solution. The box also creates challenges during inspection and maintenance. Trelleborg has developed a jet fire protection for bolted connections to extend service life in the event of a fire. The easy to install FireNut resists both jet fire and pool fire and is tailor made to accommodate almost any bolt size. The rigid and tough design means that FireNut has extremely good resistance to mechanical damage when installed.
