Thermo-Wrap CF Repair of 2 x 4 Tee in Refinery

Thermo-Wrap CF Repair of 2 x 4 Tee in Refinery

Thermo-Wrap CF, NRI’s high temperature carbon fiber composite solution, was recently used within a refinery in Mexico. The pipeline is a 4″ tee that reduces to a 2″ line located in a tight and enclosed area. The 2″ pipe was heavily pitted and was experiencing a 55% wall loss. One of the advantages of NRI’s Thermo-Wrap CF is that there is no VOCs- making it user and environmentally friendly. Even in the enclosed space, it was not necessary for technicians to wear protective oxygen masks. With the assistance of NRI’s patented field saturation machine, The Resinator, the technicians were able to complete the entire composite repair in under 2 hours. Below you will find a few photos from this Refinery repair.
