Cooling Tower Pipe Repair

Carbon Fiber Strengthening & Flange Encapsulation of 36-inch Cooling Water Pipe

Problem vs Solution
  • A routine inspection discovered loose bolts in the flange
  • Tightening of the bolts caused cracking in the FRP header requiring an emergency shutdown of the cooling tower
  • ShapeShift™ high build filler was used to transition over the 3-inch step over the flange
  • CarbonSeal™ was applied to strengthen the transition and create a water tight seal over to prevent leaking
  • Emergency materials were ordered and shipped same day along with structural calculations
