Project summary:

Inspectors at a sugar processing facility found frequent leaks in a critical cooling water pipe. A previous clamp repair had been installed but the entire section of pipe was extremely thin and required a long-term solution. Advanced FRP recommended a repair using a structurally independent, carbon fiber reinforcement system that would be installed around the existing pipe. This repair was ASME PCC-2 compliant, provided a 50-year life extension, and removed the need to drain the pipe and apply material to the inside.
