Slide Blind Multi
The Slide Blind Multi is another innovative product developed by Vast Energy Services. Based around the design of the original Slide Blind, which replaces traditional line blind variants such as the spectacle and slip blind and reduces operation time by up to 50%, the Slide Blind Multi is particularly convenient for larger format applications.
Flange surfaces are manufactured out of 516 70n boiler plate, or stainless steel while the connective material is manufactured out of cheaper and lighter materials which can reduce the blind weight for increased ease of installation.
The multi piece design allows the blind to be manufactured in smaller components, allowing assembly to be done on site with more cost efficiency as well as increased ease of handling and transportation.
The dual lifting eyes are designed with smooth edges to accommodate lifting straps and avoid fraying or cutting. The Slide Blind Multi can be custom manufactured to the producers specifications and desired materials
The Vast Energy Slide Blind is ABSA Approved and falls under ASME B16.48 Line Blind Standards. It can be custom manufactured to customer specifications, including stainless steel. All manufacturing information is printed on the handle of the slide blind.
The Slide Blind requires the operator to:
- Loosen all Studs
