Our client is a major company in the Australian engineering industry.


Brief

BLJ was tasked to rectify a gasket leak from flange joint flow element.


Solutions

To manage and repair the leak, BLJ we manufactured a leak sealing clamp and mobilised 2 technicians on site.

BLJ technicians were required to custom design and manufacture a mechanical retaining device (clamp) solution to meet clients specific application. They installed a 1-1/2” 600lb flange and injected compound to stop the leak and effect a seal. 

Leak Sealing is a temporary fix to get the plant through to the next scheduled shutdown when the item is repaired or replaced to work within the clients timeframe and resources. Clamps are designed to meet ASME VIII or AS1210 design codes 

Product: MP steam

Design Temperature: 260 degrees Celcius

Design Pressure: 540 PSI


Results

It was a clean leak seal with no downtime or disturbance - clients plant remained online during the repair process.
