Repairing a massive carbon steel pipe within 24 hours

A small leak under a metal sleeve at a 28” pipe is a problem and requests a fast and proper solution. The size of the sleeve basically would be considered as the defected area which required a repair of a reasonable size. By dropping the pressure in the pipeline the small leak was stopped and contained. Immediately after the leak was stopped the engineered carbon fiber epoxy based system was applied covering the sleeve and surrounding pipe area. The multi-layer carbon fiber solution will last for many years.

Challenge

The timeframe between starting preparation of the 100 kg repair kit, shipping from the Netherlands to Croatia, installing the wrap and curing of the epoxy was roughly 24 hours.
