UVPC Pipe Joint Repair
A major Oil & Gas Refinery approached a Unique Polymer Systems distributor regarding a leaking UVPC Pipe Joint, the joint was leaking due to age & corrosion so needed a unique solution to solve the issue.
The job previously attempted using a competitor's product, however the repair failed. This gave the distributor an opportunity to show how Unique our range really is. (Unique Polymer Systems LTD)
The surface was cleaned using a mechanical wire brush and grinder - UPS Blister Blaster - to remove all loose debris and to create a good surface for the Unique products to adhere too.
Using a combination of UPS 105 EG Metal Repair Paste and
UPS 19007 GT Glass Tape the pipe joint was sealed.
As always, downtime is primary concern in the oil & gas industry. This repair was completed with minimal downtime, only taking 3 hours from start to finish
