Emergency Pipe Leak Repair
This 48 inch suction piping for the return sludge pumps at a waste water treatment plant had sprung this large leak and several smaller leaks.
Luckily for the client, the USI Team had an Emergency Repair Kit in stock, along with extra Resimac Resimetal 106 Metal Repair Paste XF and Resimac Resimetal 101 Metal Repair Paste, and USI was able to fix the problem.
Once the fluid source was cut off, the pipe surface was manually cleaned to an
SSPC-SP10 finish. A form was manufactured to cover the leak area, and Resimac Resimetal 106 Metal Repair Paste XF was used
to fix it in place. A reinforcing strap was used for added security, and 125 mils of Resimac Resimetal 101 Metal Repair Paste was applied. Reinforcing Mesh was embedded into the product followed by another 125 mils of Resimac Resimetal 101 Metal Repair Paste. This provided a cold weld, corrosion resistant repair.
