Cable, hose & heat protection – Safety for the steel industry
Cables and hoses (hydraulic hoses, cooling water hoses) used on blast furnaces, electric arc furnaces, induction furnaces or any other heavy machinery equipment can be exposed to extreme thermal radiation, sparks or even liquid metal splashes.
The purpose of protecting those crucial parts against heat is not only for the reason off reducing downtime and making your production process more efficient while saving costs. It is even more important, it is a matter of safety in a hazardous and potentially dangerous environment.
Heat protection, especially covering hydraulic hoses and cooling water hoses should be mandatory to keep this rough environment more safe and protecting the biggest value of each company – their employees.
High pressure hoses bursting can generate a high risk and powerful whip-effect, liquids can find the way into the molten splash which can cause a deflagration.
Anamet offers a wide range of heat protection products, such as sleeves, tapes, wraps, blankets and gaskets in order to protect your equipment and employees. Tailor made items such as curtains (to protect against welding sparks or liquid metal splash) with for example eyelets when needed, cushions and pillows filled with rockwool can be produced in a short period of time.
Our flexible liquid tight conduit solutions can be used for mechanical and thermal protection, furthermore our fitting & cable gland range prohibits ingress of water and dust on your switchgears, sensors, junction boxes or multi connector. We offer special halogen free liquid tight conduits made of Polyurethan to protect cables under cold rolling mills, where they are exposed to chemicals like aggressive oil & emulsion.
Our industrial hose department is offering assemblies of corrugated metal hoses, each individually engineered and designed together with our customers, if necessary already equipped with heat protection and supplied with the right connections such as flanges and nipples to transport your liquids & gases maintaining a safe environment and process.
