Firetex Pipe Penetration Seals
MCL Unitex Limited are specialist manufacturers of flexible and rigid passive fire protection systems and have extensive experience in the design, construction and installation of fire seals and fireproof enclosures for the oil, gas, petrochemical and refining industries worldwide. Their pipe penetration seals are in use across the globe and have a reputation for reliability and longevity.
Firetex seals and enclosures, and their metallic enclosure systems are multi-component systems made up from high temperature resistant cloths, glass cloths, insulation felts and blankets, metal foils, silica-aerogel panels and high grade stainless steels. Silicate fibre products are employed which have a patented fibre formulation giving enhanced solubility characteristics in the human body.
To provide protection against harsh environments such as those experienced offshore, MCL’s flexible systems have an elastomeric membrane coating which has been tested to DIN53436H.
MCL’s seal and enclosure systems are independently tested following the hydrocarbon fire time vs. temperature curve for a period of two hours in accordance with the Department of Energy Specification – Issue 1: 1990, adopting the appropriate procedures of the exchange of notes and the International Conference on the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), as amplified by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). Throughout testing, MCL’s systems have maintained their integrity, stability and insulation properties and accordingly carry certification issued by either Lloyds Register or Det Norske Veritas. In addition to fire testing, the Firetex range of penetration seal systems have been subjected to independent blast over pressure testing and have proved their ability to maintain stability and integrity in blasts of up to 1.3 bar g.

ESSVE offers complete solutions for all types of land-based fire sealing problems, i.e. fire sealing that meets Swedish building regulations. Our fire sealing system is designed to be as simple as possible to install, adjust and supplement. ESSVE’s fire sealing system is marketed under the brand name FireSeal.
FireSeal – a fireproof concept
Effective fire sealing can prevent the spread of fire, smoke, gas and water. It must also be able to withstand the tough conditions that in fires such as violent movements and vibrations in the sealed units.
Fire sealing system
Our wide range of market-leading products is carefully designed to meet our customers’ needs.
The products in our fire sealing system can be divided into four categories, based on the type of lead-through element:
1. Cable lead-through
2. Steel pipe lead-through
3. Ventilation lead-through
4. Plastic pipe lead-through
Within these four categories we have different types of fire sealing systems that are developed for quick and effective installation. One of our most popular systems, squeezer, is designed to seal both cables and plastic pipes. Kniparen has a coating on the inside that swells when heated, leading to an effective seal against fire, smoke and gas. Kniparen is easy to install and you can add and remove cables and plastic pipes even after installation.
