An easy-to-fit steel repair clamp, sized to standard pipe diameters, has been designed so that live leaks can be sealed safely and reliably. It is recommended for use on Class 150 (20barg) systems, although can also perform at higher levels. Once the clamp is in place, the kit contains all you will need to profile the closing mechanism to enable the water-activated FurmaFast™ composite reinforcement to be applied.
Typically 12 layers of FurmaFast™ are all that is needed, with the specific requirements for the thickness and landing distance (overlap) clearly set out on the installation guide included. Fast-curing epoxy putty is provided and can be used on pin hole defects, external corrosion and in conjunction with the FurmaFast™ to strengthen lines where the clamp is not required. In addition to the repair items, the kit also includes a blank identity tag and fixing. This enables the user to record either the unique serial number from the kit or their own identification number, thus providing an easy reference for your temporary repair register.
The Emergency Repair Contingency Solution
• Emergency through wall clamp
• FurmaFast™ rolls – quantities equate to pipe diameter – and
• Basic tools required for installation
• Documentation CD – contains tutorial video, Leak Sealing brochure,
Leak Sealing/Composite data sheets, installation instructions & MSDS – Packaged into a rectangular container (for easy storage & for use during application)
As the temporary repair has no defined life time the system has been developed to be compatible with our range of fully engineered composites & clamps. This means that the repair can be upgraded to a designed lifetime solution using our engineered composite or leak sealing enclosures (clamps) subject to a design assessment or review. Copies of the Composite Repair and Clamp Specification sheets are available on the supplied CD or from Furmanite directly.
