Launched at Offshore Europe, TSG Marine and SPS are delighted to announce a permanent class approved alternative to conventional ‘crop and replace’ pipework and tubular product renewal, undertaken whilst the pipe is in-service.
Designed and manufactured in the UK and offering huge potential for companies to reduce downtime and associated costs in many different industries.
An outer fabricated steel shell consisting of two clam shells encapsulates the damaged area of pipework. Inside, radial seals are fitted at each end of the clam shells and longitudinal seals are fitted to the longitudinal flanges. The clam shells are then bolted together and the elastomer injected to bond the clam shells and pipework together. This creates a permanent structural SPS repair. This SPS elastomer core becomes a permanent protective lining, creating a bond with the original pipework.
