Oil & Gas Passive Fire Protection
Danger and damage from fire at offshore installations, refineries and petrochemical plants can be minimised by efficient protection of critical control systems. Darchem's approved passive fire protection solutions have been installed in oil field locations all over the world and for many different equipment types.

Flexible Passive Fire Protection Systems
The DarmattTM passive fire protection system offers a removable, flexible and compact system which has been tested and certified to provide protection of flow control and other safety equipment against Hydrocarbon Fire and Jet Fire Conditions. Fire loss or damage can be dramatically reduced by allowing a controlled shutdown of critical facilities.

Radiant Heat and Wind Shielding
Darchem Thermal Protection offers two types of heat shield solutions, Darflare and Darscreen, based upon the incidental heat flux levels and the required reduction. Applications include flare stacks, walkways, staircases, lifeboat stations amd muster areas. Darscreen vertical woven mesh shielding can also be used as an effective wind or weather barrier.
Principal features of Darflare and Darscreen
Lightweight: Load bearing heat shields have a weight of circa 38 kg/m2 and the non load bearing shields have a weight of circa 20 kg/m2.
Cost Effective: Darflare and Darscreen heat shields are competitively priced compared with solid systems. The system can be designed and manufactured using both stainless steel and incoloy steel.
Maintenance Free: The systems are designed to be completely maintenance and corrosion free during the project life of installation, even when subjected to severe thermal cycling from the operational flares and other extreme environmental conditions.
Heat Dissipation: The systems have a greater heat dissipation than solid systems. In the case of Darscreen a solid plate barrier would have a greater touch surface temperature than the Darchem woven wire based system.
See-through Venting: Darscreen has excellent see-through properties and is naturally venting. Solid systems prevent natural light and could trap gas that may permeate from the adjacent process plant.

Testing and Certification
Thermal Protection's DarmattTM and DarshieldTM solutions have been extensively tested by industry recognised and accredited bodies, with certified approvals received from Lloyds and certificates of compliance from DNV and other specialist authorities.
Importantly, our solutions are TYPE APPROVED FOR FIRE PROTECTION ENCLOSURE SYSTEMS. This means that our test samples represent real life installations with corners and edges to be protected and not just the testing of flat panels or wrapping around pipe sections as seen with the test approval of other similar solutions.
Equipment being protected must be operational and remain below failure temperature throughout the prescribed protection period. A passive fire protection system can pass a fire test but the equipment being protected will have reached its failure temperature and will not work! The design of DarmattTM and DarshieldTM is computer generated using our own unique Lloyds Certified Programme to ensure failure is prevented.
