WITH MEASURABLE RESULTS
Water Treatment Plant
A section of piping that was immersed in a treatment tank had several deteriorated areas that required repair.
The customer requested that the pipe system be reinforced and brought back to its original design condition and that the repair be made with a very quick turnaround.
The HydraWrap® composite repair was designed to reinforce an 8″ diameter carbon steel supply pipe with a maximum design pressure of 90 psi. The design of the HydraWrap® was based on limiting the strain in the composite repair to the allowable strains recommended by ASME. After applying the HydraWrap® system to the pipe, the composite repair was top coated with HydraTech’s NSF61 8001 Waterline epoxy. The project took less than a week to complete.
