Online leak sealing
STOPKiT® is a revolutionary concept patented by 3X ENGINEERING to seal pipe leaks online.
It is today the only efficient leak repair system in the world which can be applied on high pressure leaks in few minutes.
Many O&G companies include the STOPKiT® in their EPRS (Emergency Pipe Repair System) stock for handling oil, gas or water leaks.
This revolutionary concept is an emergency response system and is available under several models (depending on hole diameter) and for various environments (onshore, offshore & subsea).
The system operates by concentrating all the needed stress in the pipe at the defect location. The hoop stress needed to stop the leak is brought by the technical strap and the screws. The strong fibers of the strap are temperature and stress resistant.
STOPKiT® Range Overview (from 4'' to 56'')
STOPKiT® Offshore has been designed specifically for offshore environment such as platforms or subsea conditions.
The belt of this model is not only lighter and more flexible but is also very resistant underwater. It will definitely improve the long-term product efficiency.
