Carbon Fiber Composite Repairs on Pressure Piping and Tanks
Our carbon fiber composites repair division develops repair plans in accordance with ASME PCC-2 code and are engineered repairs. Carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) are capable of restoring the structural integrity to a wide variety of applications. The repairs can be designed to be temporary or for 100% replacement value where our repair will replace the original component. We have the capability to restore 100% of a pipe’s structural integrity from the inside on large buried pipe and from the outside on unburied and small O.D. pipe. Econo Seal has rebuilt intake and discharge piping from the river to the plant with no excavation for a fraction of the downtime and cost compared to conventional replacement.
Other applications we frequently repair are tanks with diminished wall thickness. Such as fire protection tanks, condensate return lines, cooling water lines and potable water lines. Our temperature and pressure limits are industry leading, with patent pending resin formulas.
CFRP lend themselves well to the repair, restoration and upgrade of concrete structures. Applications include: Seismic upgrades, concrete tank restoration, deck reinforcements for load upgrades, columns, beams, slabs, walls, and building envelope reinforcement.
Run of 6” pipe with restored structural integrity by spiral wrapping with carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP)
Defective weld repaired with carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) spiral wrap.
Exchanger shell with diminished wall thickness restored with an engineered repair plan to ASME PCC-2 standards.
Thinning pipe saved with a carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) wrap for a fraction of replacement cost.
A Midwest chemical plant discovered wall loss while inspecting a large vessel. Econo Seal developed a repair plan to restore the full structural integrity to the vessel per ASME PCC-2. This saved our customer weeks of downtime, saving untold revenue and labor cost.
