PFP Panels

Introduction to PFP Panels

Passive Fire Protection (PFP) Panels are engineered to provide protection against hydrocarbon jet and pool fires. It’s low thermal conductivity value prevents heat transfer from one side of the panel to the other, offering further protection from radiant heat.

Features of PFP Panels

  • Fast installation
  • Protection against hydrocarbon jet and pool fires
  • Insulation properties provides protection from radiant heat
  • Lightweight

Applications of PFP Panels

PFP Panels are used industries which includes:

  • Offshore & Onshore
  • Marine
  • LNG
  • Oil & Gas
  • Petrochemical
  • Power Plants and others

PFP Panels are used industries which includes:

  • Escape routes/pathways
  • High pressured vessels and pipelines
  • Flare systems and others

Comparison between PFP Panels and Conventional Method

PFP Panels Conventional
Customizable pre-shaped panels Utilizes intumescent spray

The conventional method requires a wall structure to be coated the intumescent spray. If the required area to be fireproofed is too large and the structure is not in place, it must be constructed before the coating can be done. Construction of a new wall structure is difficult to be performed at an existing offshore facility. Furthermore, intumescent coating will also expand once in contact with fire, making it unideal for congested areas and escape route where the foam could be in contact with personnel. Constant exposure to the weather and mechanical vibrations also will deteriorate the coatings further over time and increases the maintenance costs with frequent recoating.

Unlike intumescent coatings, PFP Panels do not require a wall to be attached to. The panels are typically attached to structures surrounding it. The lightweight panels will not expand in contact with fire and will not release harmful foam that will be in touch with the personnel. The panels will also not deteriorate over time and no retouching is required.
