What Is an On-Line Leak Repair?

Leak repair is something you may not know much about, but it is very important when it comes to operating any type of plant. Being able to maintain effective corrosion management without shutting down helps keep many plant operations flowing without downtime.

What is an on-line leak repair? There are some on-line leak repair basics. Here is what you need to know.

Leak Repair

On-Line leak repair is sealing or repairing a leak or site that is about to leak, without having to shut down the plant. All the work gets done while the plant is still in operation. 

On-line leak repair basics can be described as using a part that is already made to make a dip or cavity that will contain the leak. A sealant is then injected into the cavity to seal up the leak. This repair is temporary and will keep the plant from shutting down. It allows time for permanent repairs to be planned out. 

This kind of on-line leak repair can work on any type of plastic or metal. It stops the leak while keeping important systems running. Once the leak gets fixed, the area is wrapped with a Composite Repair System to make the repair last longer and guarantee that it is sealed
