Heatshield introduces its Lava Tube thermal-barrier sleeve, designed to protect fluid lines from heat exposure, prevent vapor lock and shield wires from heat damage.
According to the company, the sleeve is made from a specially-formulated proprietary volcanic rock-based cloth engineered to withstand continuous heat of 1,200° F and up to 2,000° F of intermittent heat. The sleeve’s fibers are designed for added durability to help resist abrasions and chemical exposure. The company adds a high-temperature hook-and-loop fastening system helps simplify installation, including on lines, cables, wiring bundles and linkages.
The sleeve is available in four diameters ranging from 0.5 in. to 1.5 in. and in lengths of 3 ft. and 10 ft. that can be cut to fit, the company says.
