12″ Fire Water Line

The 12″ line had suffered from severe external corrosion and resulted in a through wall defect.  The client required an engineered composite system which would seal the leak and give a long term design life.

The Problem

The fire water line had been suffering from severe external corrosion resulting in a large leaking defect at the 12 o clock position. Due to the high pressure, the clamp that was fitted by site personnel was unsuccessful.

The customer required a fast response and a long term solution to this safety critical equipment.

The Solution

Metalyte Pipeworks first applied their bespoke composite leak sealing system.
Once the leak was sealed, the technicians then prepped the full repair area and then applied the engineered composite system which will halt any further corrosion and keep the system in service.
