June 16, 2016 By    

titeflex-240x260Titeflex Corp. says more protection against lightning strikes has been built into protective-jacketed CSST products. The company’s FlashShield is a metallically shielded flexible gas piping system, which includes a three-layer protective jacket. The metallic shield is the workhorse when it comes to dissipating and mitigating unintended electrical arcs to its surface. The shield is sandwiched between two layers of plastic jacketing. The system design incorporates a metallic shield-to-fitting connection to establish electrical continuity for optimal performance.
