Pipe repair products have been used by the likes of US Navy, Research vessels and Pipelines for quite some time. Neglected, however, have been its applications in everyday industry, such as Power plants and Water Treatment facilities.
Recently, Pumpcoat received an emergency call from a Co-Generation Plant regarding a leaky pipe. A service person was dispatched to fix the problem with a specialized Pipe Repair Pack. This pack includes a patented fiberglass wrapping product which is impregnated with a resin that activates when it comes into contact with fresh or salt water. It can be used under pressure or under water, and comes in a variety of sizes and types for different jobs like joints, straight pipes, corroded or broken pipes. Pumpcoat has customized its Repair Packs to include additional Pipe repair products a plant might need in an emergency.
President of Pumpcoat, Susan O'Leary, says she recommends that all plants keep a Pipe Repair Pack on hand for such an emergency. This versatile tool has simple instructions so that in most cases a plant's own personnel can apply them. Setting time takes 30 - 60 minutes and it cures totally in 24 hours for permanent damage repair.
Pumpcoat also distributes "The Mop-up pump", a versatile portable pump which can take gallons of water down to 1/12 of an inch, and can start up in a small puddle of liquid. These pumps are invaluable for removing standing water from flat roofs, garages, flooded areas or burst pipes.
For more information on Pipe Repair Kits, as well as Mop-up pumps to help clean up after a flood, please contact Mike O'Leary, Director of Sales at Pumpcoat, Inc.
