StrongBack Pipeline Leak
Repair / Reinforcement
We do not stop at investigating the
extent of corrosion defects in pipelines; we effect the necessary
This is by means of an innovative
and highly efficient product called StrongBack
Composite Pipeline Reinforcement System. Manufactured by our
American partner Patchmasters International Corporation.
StrongBack is a resin impregnated fibre tape that sets to
rock-hardness minutes after being applied.
Unlike metal clamps and sleeves, it
is relatively weightless and non-conductive up to about 16,000
volts - an advantage in lines cathodically protected, by
preventing attenuations (current leakages and voltage losses). It
is economical, easy to apply. Heat resistant and practically not
affected by acids, pipeline products and other hydrocarbons.
The StrongBack System offers:
Repair and reinforcement of sub-sea pipelines and
other submerged structures without the need for special habitats
and without interrupting the line service.
Repair and reinforcement of on-shore and in-plant
pipelines without interrupting the line service.
Repair and coating of pipelines in just one
procedure thereby eliminating of welding, cut-outs, metal sleeves,
clamps and other conventional repair methods and many more
solutions for pipeline rehabilitation and corrosion.
