ON STREAM LEAK SEALING

If left unaddressed, piping system threats such as leaks, corrosion, or wall thinning can be costly. Laminar offers on stream leak sealing services and mechanical repair in Singapore and worldwide for all types of pressure repair.

On-Stream Leak Repair or Underpressure Leak Sealing is a technique to achieve a seal with specialized compounds and/or a mechanical repairing device. This is a temporary solution to fix leaks until the leak issue can be repaired or replaced at the next scheduled plant shutdown. This repair can be done without interruption to daily operations and provides a temporary fix without incurring high costs and loss of production. 

Each leak repair case is assessed on its own to identify whether composite repair or mechanical solution is more suited to solve the problem. A detailed analysis of defects including pipeline dents and cracking can be provided. For the repairs, third-party repair systems that meet the qualification requirements of the reference standards will be used. When required, third-party calculations can be checked and verified.

Our team is qualified to provide efficient service for pipeline repairs and reinforcements for pipe systems operating up to 100 MPa at temperatures between -70°C and +160°C, subject to external/internal corrosion, leaks, dents and mechanical damages.

At Laminar, we provide custom solutions to any integrity threat, from the most conventional valve-packing leak to the most sophisticated high-pressure hydrocarbon-piping repair and reinforcement. We collaborate with global leaders in sealing composites and fittings manufacturers. Our local technicians repair all leak sources with our global engineering partners.

We assure our clients that we will provide the appropriate solutions to resolve any pipe, valve, or flange leak repairs, ensuring a prompt response.

INJECTABLE LEAK SEALING

A special combination of clamp (casing) and unique composites can seal a pipe leak. The clamp is customized based on pipe material, temperature, fluid, pressure, and type.

After identifying the leak location, the installed clamp will create a sealed envelope. Using a high-pressure hydraulic tool, the operator inserts a new sealing composite to create a seal around the leak. This technique is helpful in industrial settings to prevent production losses and environmental damage. 

To inject our sealing compounds, we use a customized hydraulic tools set developed by Laminar. We offer various combinations according to the project conditions.

The reason we would choose to use an injectable sealant such as PTFE is because it can be used to seal any water leaks on-gland packings, valve bonnets and flange joints– under-pressure with no shutdown required and is an ideal material for sealing your pipework. WRAS approved injectable sealant for sealing operational potable water leaks are available with no cure time required, making it ideal for a potable water network, cooling towers and semiconductor plants.

TECHNOLOGY

01 : Preparatory Stage

11

Preparation and reinforcement of the damaged area of ​​the pipeline for further work (replacement of fasteners, installation of ring adapters, installation of a clamp for additional tightening of the flange connection).

02: Localisation of The Leak Area

22

Depending on the pressure of the conveyed fluid and the leak/crack area size, one can use various methods without disrupting the process or causing a costly shutdown.

03: Preparation for Compound Introduction

33

Installation of injection adapters at the leak zone for subsequent composite injection.

04: Compound Introduction

44

Injection of a composite (depending on the nature of the fluid in the piping system) using an injection gun.

FAQ's

Online leak sealing is a cost-effective technique to repair pipeline leaks and prevent further damage. It involves applying specialised materials or compounds to seal leaks without shutting down the entire system.

This method allows quick and effective repairs, minimising downtime and reducing operational costs. It involves identifying the leak location and applying suitable sealants or compounds to the leaking area using innovative tools and equipment. Online leak sealing saves time and ensures pipelines remain functional during repairs.

Pipeline leakage is a severe problem caused by various factors, such as wear and tear, corrosion, and natural disasters. These factors can result in small leaks that are often hard to detect until they have caused significant damage.

Moreover, high-pressure changes and temperature fluctuations can lead to pipe leakage, causing decreased efficiency, energy loss, and product contamination. Poorly designed joints or connections and improperly installed valves may contribute to the problem, leading to excessive back pressure and leaks. Additionally, foreign objects or debris in the pipeline can cause wear and tear on the pipe walls, resulting in leakage.
