Advance Products & Systems Flange Band Protectors

Flange Band Protectors Prevent Debris from Lodging Between Two Flange Surfaces. This helps ensure Cathodic Isolation and Prevent Stray Current Corrosion.

Flange Band Protectors

Flanges, the most common trouble area, need to be sealed properly to prevent leakage and must also be cathodically isolated to prevent stray currents which cause undo corrosion and eventual breakdown of the metal. Advance Products & Systems manufactures and maintains a supply of quality products and materials which help solve most flange sealing problems, therefore preventing subsequent corrosion and saving the integrity of the pipeline.
Flange Corrosion

Corrosion costs more than just money

Advance Flange Protectors are designed to protect studs and gaskets on raised face and ring type joint flanges from atmospheric corrosion encountered in chemical plants, refineries, gas plants, offshore platforms, onshore oil fields, ships, paper mills and underground pipelines.

Flange Protector Types

This system totally eliminates any possibility of foreign matter lodging between the faces of your flange or corrosion bridging across and creating a short.
Stainless steel or plastic models are available in all sizes for preventing corrosion between flanges on piping systems. Advance Flange Protectors are manufactured according to ANSI B16.5 specifications up to 24″. Above 24″, please provide the specifications of your flange including the circumference. Technical assistance is available upon request.


Flange Band Protector

NEW Kleerband® Flange Protectors are the quick, easy, and effective way to apply protection and prevent corrosion. Why protect flanges the old way when APS has the new, clear advantage to prevent corrosion? Kleerband Flange Protectors are manufactured with 100% virgin vinyl compound, which allows visual inspection of the flange surface without removing the flange protector.

Stainless Steel Flange Protector

For high temperature applications

Advance Flange Protectors are manufactured with 22 gauge 304 or 316 stainless steel band, stainless steel worm-gear strap, and grease fitting. An exclusive positive loading relief vent and plug assures the complete loading of flange cavities, plus allows you to visually inspect the flange without removal of the protector, as is standard. The gasket is made of 3/16″ closed cell neoprene for positive seal. (Other gasket material available upon request).

Kleergel® Inhibitor Grease

Heavy duty synthetic grease used in conjunction with Kleerband Flange Protectors to prevent corrosion and protect your pipeline. A high performance synthetic grease is non-staining, non-toxic, multipurpose lubricant which outperforms other petroleum based grease.
Kleergel® Inhibitor Grease contains no impurities, making it more durable than the leading petroleum based lubricant. In addition, Kleergel® isn’t easily prone to oxidation, emulsification, and other destructive chemical reactions.
