STRAIGHT PIPE SECTION LEAK
A steam pipeline was leaking at the weld joint of a pipe straight section. SealXpert products were applied and the problem was solved successfully without shutdown.
The leak area was cleaned of dirt and loose debris from the pipe surface. Thereafter, Teflon gasketing material was applied onto the leak area along with a sheet metal and SealXpert Stainless Steel Pipe Clip.
Once the leak was arrested, SealXpert Repair Putty was applied onto the entire affected area. Thereafter, Wrap Seal PLUS Fiberglass Repair Tape was wrapped around the repair area to reinforce the elbow leak area.
