Pikotek Flange Insulation Kits are designed to work in conjunction with the Pkotek VCS and PGE insulating gaskets to effect the complete electrical insulation of a flanged assembly.
The Insulation Kits consist of one full-length insulating sleeve, two insulating washers, and two steel washers for each of the bolts in the flange assembly. The purpose of the insulating sleeves is to electrically separate the bolts from each side of the flange, while the insulating washers provide electrical insulation for each of . the nuts attached to the bolts. This method of insulation provides the user with a high-reliability solution to complete the electrical insulation of a flanged joint.
Pikotek insulating kits/sets are designed to be used with Pikotek's specialty line of high-strength, high-reliability insulating gaskets and are available for use in all types of flanges including raised-face, flat-face and RTJ. The gaskets and kits are sized according to the relevant flange specification including ANSI, API, DIN, BS,AS, MSSP, etc. Special insulating set configurations can be manufactured upon request for custom requirements that don't conform to standard specifications.
