ASME B16.48 Ring Joint Male
Spectacle Blinds - Single Blinds - Ring Spacers


Spectacle Blind
  A combination of a Single Blind and a Ring Spacer fabricated, for field convenience, as a single unit. Weight limitations and the associated difficulty of handling heavy pieces in the field are the primary considerations in specifying a Spectacle or Figure 8 Blind over separate components.

Single Blind

  A positive shut-off device normally installed adjacent to, or in conjunction with, a valve. Their purpose is to prevent accidental flow through a pipeline or into a vessel.

Ring Spacer

  API 590 Designed Ring Spacers are bored to the outside diameter diameter of pipe and are of the same thickness as the Single Blind it replaces.
