On Line Leak Sealing

Leaking components in industrial processing systems cause damage to the environment due to the nature of the leaking fluid (toxic, inflammable, explosive, acid, corrosive) or due to the conditions of the leak (high temperatures and / or noise).

 

A non-planned shut-down of a productive process, to eliminate leaks, implies in considerable financial losses.

 

On line leak sealing technology was developed to avoid losses and the principle of the service is that, after external damming a viscous resin is injected under pressure, through adequate equipment, into the empty space and thus obtaining the seal.

 

Once the leak is sealed, the injection system is removed. For high pressure leaks a small valve remains in position and is only removed if there is a system shut-down, when a permanent corrective repair should be done.
