Clock Spring Leak Stop has again come to the rescue; being used to repair leaking pipelines in Australia. Unfortunately, not all corrosion can be detected before it causes a pipeline leak and potential product spill. Pipeline corrosion causing leaks may be either internal or external but the result is often the same; causing the pipeline to be shutdown and the loss of production.
Clock Spring Leak Stop is a pipeline leak solution that was used recently to repair such a leak. A pipeline failed due to corrosion; causing the pipeline to be shut-in and the loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars. After the pipeline was inspected; Clock Spring Leak Stop was chosen as the pipeline repair solution. With the pipeline drained, cleaned and Leak Stop installed; the defect area is then fitted with a Clock Spring Snap Wrap. Once cured for two hours, the pipeline was suitably rated to 35Bar operating pressure.
