6”Ø Elbow 4mm Hole at Weld Heat Affected Zone
Arresting an air Leak Under 7.0 BarG Pressure.
Ear protection required due to high noise level.
Leak Arrested at 10 N.m Torque.
After air test the spool was filled with water and successfully tested at 80 BarG - 20 N.m Torque
Water Leak with Initial Pressure kept at 2.5 BarG. As the leak rate started to be reduced the pressure was gradually increased to 80.0 BarG to assess the STOPKIT performance.
40 N.m Torque Applied Pressure 80.0n BarG
Minor Leak - Tear
44 N.m Final Torque
Leak Permanently Arrested
25mm Hole on Plain Pipe Pressurized up to 36.0 BarG. Evidence of Leak at around 30.0 BarG.
Pressure Stabilized at 25.0 BarG – Leak Stopped
4mm Hole on Top of the Weld - Tested up to 36.0 BarG. No Evidence of Leaks
