Pipeline reinforcement is performed to increase the pipe wall thickness in non-leaking pipe defects. These defects occur due to external corrosion or damage, dents, gouges, fretting or wear at supports, internal corrosion and/ or erosion, manufacturing or fabrication defects. The Objective of pipeline reinforcement is to rebuild and increase the pipe wall thickness so that the resultant pipe mechanical strength is sufficient to withstand operating conditions.
Especially in industries where hot works are not easily permitted, the implementation of pipeline reinforcement via cold repair works are useful in the repair and rehabilitation works of pipelines.
Pipeline Data & Operating Conditions
Before carrying out an effective pipeline rehabilitation and reinforcement work, pipeline data and operating conditions are gathered. These data are reviewed and evaluated under international standards and guidelines such as ASME PCC2 and ISO 24817 standards and requirements, to design an effective and suitable pipeline repair and reinforcement solution.
