What Is an RTJ Paddle Blind?

An RTJ paddle blind features a T-shaped handle connected to a circular paddle, with a look that’s similar to a skillet or frying pan. Unlike a flat-faced paddle blind, the RTJ blind features a raised face on each side with a machined groove just inside the edge of the face that accepts a round metallic seal.

When installed between two pipe flanges, the metal seals on each side deform to fit the grooves, creating tight, leak-free seals that withstand high temperatures, high pressures, and corrosive chemicals.

The paddle blind stops flow in the piping system to isolate that section or perform maintenance and repairs. The construction of an RTJ paddle blind is similar to a raised-face blind, with the addition of the sealing grooves.

RTJ paddle blinds are known in the industry by many different names, depending on the location and the application. These can include:

  • Paddle blind ring-type joint
  • Paddle blank RTJ
  • RTJ slip blind
  • RTJ spade blind
  • RTJ package blind
  • RTJ skillet blind
  • RTJ line blank
