STOPKiT®

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).

 
 
 

 

USES

  • Emergency leak repairs
  • Seal pipe leaks online up to 10mm and 80 bars (1160 psi)
  • Seal pipe leaks online up to 50mm and 30 bars (435 psi)

APPLICATIONS

  • Onshore, Offshore and Subsea
  • Suitable for weld, elbow, oval pipe ...
  • Diameters from 4" to 56"
  • Temperature from -20°C to +80°C

BENEFITS

  • No shutdown required
  • No additional load on pipe (light product)
  • Quick installation by a single person
  • Easy to store & no expiry date

 

STOPKiT® Concept

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® Implementation Steps

1
Clean the pipe and set-up the 1st part of the positioner
2
Install the STOPKiT®
and slide it over the leak
3
Set-up the 2nd part
of the positioner
4
Tighten up to 40Nm
5
Remove the positioner
STOPKiT® installed.

 

STOPKiT® Positioner

STOPKiT® is easily applicable thanks to the STOPKiT® Positioner tool. This special device allows to center the patch on the leak and prevents slipping during tightening
