In a large New York City office building, a leak had developed close to the ‘Y’ connection on the header of this condenser discharge pipe. With the hopes to avoid total replacement, which would cause major inconvenience to the facility, they reached out to our ENECON to find an economical, fast and durable solution.
The pipe was first abraded to remove any damage and loose materials. Next, DurAlloy along with multiple layers of reinforcement cloth were used to repair the leak site. To provide added strength to this area of the pipe, it was decided to prime the pipe with DuraWrap Primer, and apply the DuraWrap Carbon Fiber Pipe Wrap System. Sheets of carbon fiber fabric were thoroughly wetted-out with the DuraWrap polymer, and wrapped around the piping to create a durable layer for years to come.
The building’s engineers were extremely pleased with the outcome of the repair, and continue to rely on ENECON for efficient solutions to all future repair and maintenance needs.
