Project Details

A cooling tower at a chemical manufacturing facility was experiencing leaks on the fiberglass header pipe with a bell and spigot design. The leaks were mainly present at the joint of the pipe including areas where previously installed fiberglass-based repairs did not perform as expected. As the cooling tower was critical to the operation of the facility, it could not be taken offline and any repair needed to be completed with the pressurized pipes actively leaking cooling water.

Though the leaks on the bell and spigot joint coupled with the large diameter of the pipe presented a challenge, Advanced FRP Systems solved the problem with a two-part solution: a moisture-cured urethane wrap to stop the active leak on the pressurized piping system and a high-strength carbon fiber composite wrap to provide a permanent repair.
