This bulletin describes the DurcoShield(tm) pump safety accessory--a one-piece splash and shaft guard that envelops the open areas between the pump's bearing housing and the casing. Coated for improved corrosion resistance, this polycarbonate device deflects fluid spray from a malfunctioning seal and protects fingers and clothing from exposure to a pump's rotating shaft. The literature explains that the shield is designed for applications from -70 °F to 300 °F but is not designed as a containment or seal backup system. It is available for Mark II and III and Chemstar(r) pumps. The shield's transparency permits easy inspection of the seal area.
