Low Injection-Pressure Sealants

When injecting a clamp, enclosure or gland packing the less stress applied to the valve, flange or pipe the better.

These are live lines and already under pressure – so by using a LIP Sealant – Low Injection Pressure – we place as little additional stress as possible.

We have tested the pressure required for our compound to travel around a void inside a clamp.

20 PSI IS ALL THAT’S REQUIRED

Then we increase the pressure inside until it is just above line pressure – this forces the leak back and holds it.

Please watch the video clip and take note of the compound traveling around the outside of the gasket.

It fills all the bolt cavities and carries on.

The front face is made of Perspex It also has a crack in Perspex – before the injection starts? And yet because we are using a Low Injection Pressure – NO FURTHER DAMAGE is caused to the Perspex.
