Stop liquid leaks with this emergency pipe-repair kit

By Chemical Engineering |

Miko Marine

This company has developed a kit that can be used to seal leaks in high-pressure pipes (photo). The system uses specially formulated rubber patches that are slid over a leak and held in place by ratchet straps. The kits can be used to seal leaks in pipes ranging from 2 to 20 in. in diameter, and can cover holes up to 1-in. across. Users who employ the correct application technique can successfully seal a leak through which liquid is escaping at pressures up to 10 bars. The kits can be used in storage-tank farms, as well as many areas of the offshore oil-and-gas, marine, chemical and construction industries. — Miko Marine AS, Oslo, Norway
