COMPOSITE REPAIRS SOLVE AN EXPLOSIVE SITUATION

A major battle faced by asset owners and operators is to maintain the integrity of pipework. As main conduits for processed fluids, pipes are susceptible to corrosion, erosion and mechanical damage. Indeed, piping systems and pipework can fail in several ways. The most commonly experienced failures are associated with either internal or external corrosion of the pipe wall. They can result in metal loss, cracking or even leakage. A small crack may be difficult to identify, but it can damage the pipeline sufficiently enough to cause a catastrophic failure.

Clamp-on for quick best value solutions

Trying to get a grip on the water, energy flows or process flows within process and water industry systems can be a daunting task. What’s flowing where? How do we control or monitor that? Are the questions to be answered and starting with a clean sheet would be great but in practice we’re faced with old systems, limited drawings and a confusing and tangled mess to sort out.
