We specialize in repair and retrofit of large diameter pipes and PCCP with carbon and glass FRP and have won international awards for such projects. We hold the record for having repaired the world's largest pipeline with FRP-1.1 mile of an 84inch pipe in the mountainous terrains of Costa Rica in only 15 days.
SMALL DIAMETER PIPES
Some of our PipeMedic™ laminates are so flexible that they can be used to repair pipes as small as 3 inches in diameter. Even these flexible laminates have tensile strength of 60,000 psi, which is considerably stronger than mild steel. Installation can be performed with packer devices as shown here.
PRESSURE GAS PIPES
PipeMedic™ is the only FRP product that has been tested by the Gas Technology Institute and has been approved for repair of pressurized natural gas pipelines. The thin laminates can be remotely installed, allowing the pipe to resist internal pressures in excess of 250 psi.
We offer solutions for a wide range of pipe diameter sizes from 100mm to over 4.5 m. Most of these techniques are performed as trenchless, requiring zero or minimal excavation. QuakeWrap engineers will determine the number and orientation of fibers in each layer of the FRP fabric and will provide sealed engineering drawings for such repairs.
QUAKEWRAP® CARBON FRP PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN USED TO REPAIR LARGE DIAMETER PIPES IN THE NUCLEAR POWER INDUSTRY SINCE THE LATE 1990s AND CONTINUE TO PROVIDE MAINTENANCE FREE SERVICE AFTER 20 YEARS OF SERVICE
