AIS launches re-engineered Jet Fire Pro suit

Health & Safety

UK’s Advanced Industrial Solutions (AIS) has introduced a 35mm fire protection jacket called Jet Fire Pro, designed to protect workers from fires and is specially meant for use in the oil and gas sector

The jacket is the thinnest and lightest fire protection jacket in the market currently, said AIS.

Based on industry feedback, the company has re-engineering its Jet Fire Pro fire protection jacketing system and enhanced its protective qualities. The new and improvised Jet Fire Pro, which has insulated pipes, valves, actuators and associated equipment, can withstand temperatures of up to 1,250°C for 90 minutes. The suit is designed to provide safety from hydrocarbon jet fires and help avert accidents onsite.

AIS technical head Chris Evans said, “The oil and gas industry is undergoing vast changes and the feedback from our clients suggests that innovation, efficiency and cost savings are key. Many operators were finding that existing PFP systems were over-engineered for their needs and they simply didn’t need 120 minutes of protection to maintain safety levels. In response, we’ve stripped back our existing Jet Fire Pro product to make it the thinnest and lightest in the market, at the same time as retaining its technical excellence.”

The thinner jacket fits well, is easy to maintain and transport – and is significantly cost-friendly. With an operating capacity ranging from -60°C to 1,250°C, the Jet Fire Pro has a special weather layer, which has super hydrophobic values to repel water. By preventing moisture from infiltrating pipe work, the system eliminates corrosion under insulation (CUI) and extends the life of the structure.

The Jet Fire Pro product has been extensively tested at the world’s leading fire test facilities and is type approved by global certification organisations Lloyds Register and DNV-GL.
