Problem:
Provide a seal for a leaking high pressure connection.

Objective:
Provide a retro-fit seal solution for a leaking high pressure connection to a water silo.

Solution:
Flexseal supplied Pow-R Wrap, a fibreglass pipe repair product to seal the problem connection.

A farmer from Shropshire had a leaking inlet/outlet on his water silo, used to wash out cattle sheds.

The problem connection, needed a retro-fit solution which could be wrapped around the pipe to stop the leak.

Flexseal stock a range of fiberglass repair products, Pow-R Wrap. The product comprises of an epoxy putty and resin impregnated fiberglass sheet which sets extremely strong, up to 40 bar of pressure.

Pow-R Wrap was suggested by Flexseal to make a permanent retro-fit repair.

The contractor was able to fit the product without the need for any tools, just using the components provided in the Pow-R Wrap pack.

The wrap cured in 30 minutes, after which the seal was tested and subsequently passed and the contractor was able to sand the material and paint over it.
