Intertec now offers ‘1709’ fire-resistant shelters, designed to protect critical safety equipment from exposure to high temperature fires in hazardous areas on ships and on offshore drilling, processing and storage platforms. ‘1709’ shelters are constructed from a proprietary composite material comprising one or more layers of fire resistant mineral wool placed between sheets of advanced glass reinforced polyester (GRP). This material will keep contained valves, actuators and electronics below 60 degrees C (140 F) for 90 minutes. The shelters are passive, maintenance-free and impervious to a wide range of corrosive chemicals — including salt, sulphur dioxide and sour or acid gas. For maintenance purposes, shelters can incorporate removable panels which helps to minimize service time and costs.
