Integrity assurance specialists Hydratight has partnered with adhesive sealants and functional coatings firm Henkel to be a provider for their LOCTITE composite repair system for pipelines, tanks and vessels.
The collaborative approach will enable Hydratight and Henkel to help customers avoid unscheduled and expensive plant downtime and increase asset life by delivering efficient and cost-effective engineered repairs.
Hydratight has collaborated with Henkel on numerous projects to date specifically working with large operators in petrochemical refineries across Europe and expanding into Asia, Africa, and the Middle East regions.
“Hydratight and Henkel have formed a strategic collaboration on a global scale to deliver innovative interim and permanent repair solutions, which we know will be beneficial to our customers. The alliance not only provides permanent, cost-effective pipeline repair technology, but is delivered by expertly trained and competent technicians in a variety of onshore and offshore projects,” said P J O’Connell, service commercial director at Hydratight.
Repairs designed for components range from straight, bend, reducer, T-Piece, flange, tanks, vessels to heat exchanger vessel shell.
The repair system has third party design certification with DNV GL, Lloyds and TUV for meeting the requirements of ISO 24817 for the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries.
