Foam in Place Testing & Inspection Port
At Access Plug Flange, Inc., we pride ourselves on listening to our customers' needs and being flexible enough to help provide solutions when others can't. Over the years, APF has designed inspection ports for specialized applications and worked with numerous customers to provide solutions that have become industry standards today.
AS SHOWN IN THE IMAGES, ONE SUCH APPLICATION IS THE FOAM-IN-PLACE APPLICATION.
Our customer had a need for an inspection port to be mounted on a tank that was insulated with a polyurethane spray on insulation without any jacketing. APF designed what we call the Flanged Spool Inspection Port Assembly (FS-1), nicknamed the 'spool'. It is a double flanged inspection port that can be mounted to the tank surface using either silicone or mastic and then have the polyurethane sprayed around it. Once the foam hardens, a permanent inspection hole was created giving the customer a cost-effective solution for future inspections.
The FS-1 can be configured to almost any thickness since we cut the sleeve prior to press fitting the flanges to it. Once the flanges have been press-fitted to the sleeve, a permanent solution is created.
|Part Number||Description||Working Hole Size for Inspectors||Minimum Temp Range||Max Temp Range||Flange Material||Stopper Material|
|SP1||2 1/2 Spool Assembly, Aluminum Flat Flange, Red Silicone Access Plug w/Copper Sleeve, Variable Length Standoff Tube||2 1/2"||33°F||500°F||Aluminum||Silicone|
The FS-1 comes standard in the 2 1/2", 500°F configuration but other configurations can be designed around your needs. Any of our inspection ports can be configured to work with this application. Click here to see the Installation Video

Our inspection ports were specifically designed to protect against port failure from just such an event.
Cryogenic service inspection ports carry APF's technology as a most insulation effective, maximum inspection area, and most reliable sealing mechanism on market.
By matching the inspection port to your process temperature, you can protect the integrity of the system from failure due to the loss of the insulation core.
Access Plug Flange, Inc. offers inspection ports with effective insulation, maximum inspection area, and reliable sealing mechanism across multiple industries.
