Fire-resistant fibreglass insulation sleeves

Distag QCS offers a range of high-quality Fire & heat resistant protective wrapping for hydraulic hoses, cables and welding leads.

Our Industrial grade Firesleeve withstands repeated exposures to molten steel, molten aluminium and molten glass up to 1650°C. The heavy coating of the iron oxide red silicone rubber compound sheds molten metal splash immediately, so very little heat transfer occurs. A cost-effective product that will minimise downtime and production losses for any industry relying on hydraulic machinery.

Our Industrial grade Firesleeve will withstand continuous exposure to 260°C; up to 1090°C for 15-20 minutes; up to 1650°C for 15-30 seconds.

Our Firesleeve is constructed from high bulk glass fibre knitted sleeve. Excellent modulus of elasticity makes it an excellent choice for bundling hoses, tubes and cables in a variety of hostile environments. Firesleeve insulation properties provide personnel with effective protection against burns from hot hoses and flexible streamlines while reducing heat energy losses.

It can be used for wrapping single hoses or multiple-hose looms. across a wide range of sectors such as: Steel Mills, Tunnelling, Drill rigs, Mining, Welding, Gas Construction, Offshore Oil, Marine, Sub-sea, Aerospace, Locomotive & Automotive.

THERMAL PROTECTION & INSULATION SOLUTION FOR LESS DEMANDING SITUATIONS

FLEXEQUIP Fiberglass Braided Sleeve is an economic thermal protection and insulation solution for less demanding situations. Made of texturized E-Glass fibre yarns, the sleeve is lightweight, flexible and durable,  exhibiting excellent dielectric strength and low thermal conductivity. It is a completely asbestos-free, non-hazardous insulation sleeve. E-glass fibre sleeve will not burn and resists most acids, alkalis, bleaches and solvents in a wide range of applications including protecting industrial hose, pipes, and ables. The expandable braided construction allows the sleeve to fit the irregular hoses and fittings.

Fiberglass Braided Sleeve can also be coated with binders or other coatings to minimize fray and increase abrasion resistance.

VELCRO FIRESLEEVE

FLEXEQUIP Velcro Firesleeve is easy and flexible for installation on the hoses, pipes, wires and cables, especially the non-detachable ones. There is no need to disassemble the hoses or cables when installing them.

Manufactured with high-grade E-glass fibre, silicone rubber coating and velcro closure, it is a good choice to protect hoses, pipes, wires and cables from hydraulic fluids, lubricating oils, fuels, etc., protecting employees from burns and allows “bundling” of wires, hoses, and cables, such as EAF cable cover. The thick formulation of silicone rubber sheds molten splash, slag, welding splatter, electrical or grinding sparks and contamination. It also provides protection from ozone, UV and abrasion.

SILICONE RUBBER SELF-FUSING FIRE TAPE

FLEXEQUIP Silicone Rubber Self-fusing Tape is a non-adhesive yet self-bonding to itself and other silicone rubber sleeve and tape. It withstands high temperature, occasional flame and molten splashes, and exhibits stable chemical properties with a resistance to fuel, oil, water, acids, and many other solvents. It’s typically used as an end wrap tape for fire sleeve, preventing hydraulic oils and contaminants leaking into the inside with better thermal insulation.

When wrapped in a ring or spiral pattern under tension (stretched by app. 250%), the tape can fuse to itself over time, no need to use heat or chemical sprays to set it. It’s easy to remove and leaves no sticky residue behind.

SILICONE COATED FIBREGLASS TAPE 

FLEXEQUIP Silicone Coated Fiberglass Tape, made of bulk fibreglass tape with silicone rubber coating, can protect hoses, wires and cables from the hazards of high temperature and occasional flame.

When exposed to flame, the silicone rubber coating transforms to a crust, creating a protective SiO2 refractory layer. The tape is usually used to wrap complex shapes or varied dimension tapered pipes. Typically, the tape is overlapped by 50% when winding. Also, it can be installed in situations where tubular fire sleeve cannot be used, and when hoses, wires and cables cannot be disconnected for sleeving.

Celebrating 50 years in Hydraulics

Distag QCS (UK) Ltd, previously known as Flexequip Ltd, was founded in July 1971 and began manufacturing hydraulic couplings to service a large home and export market across the world through a distribution network.

The Flexequip brand has been synonymous with designing and manufacturing high-quality hydraulic couplings for over 50 years. From the early days of re-usable couplings, and braised adapters, to the current range of one & two-piece fittings, the FH logo is widely recognised across Europe, UK, and the Middle East.

Following the acquisition by the Distag group in 2006, the company has continued to expand the product range and service provided, and today we carry over 10,000 active hydraulic component SKUs, including hose, fittings, adapters, QR couplings, valves, motors, cylinders, clamps & hose protection.

In addition to the components provided, Distag also manufacture hose assemblies, manipulated steel tube assemblies, and build hydraulic kits according to customer specification.

While the name may have changed, and the product range expanded, we are proud to have some members of the team still with us today, who have been on this journey with the company for over 30 and 40 years; and witnessed the continuous development and improvement in hydraulic couplings.

We welcome you to take a look at our new celebration catalogue, and see some of the products which will take us into next 50 years phase.
