Pipe Repair for Gas Mains
03-07-2019

Our pipe repair products can be used for a wide range of applications, including for the transportation of water and air.

 

While our sleeves are most commonly used for the repair of sewer pipes post-trenchless pipe replacement, we also offer products for gas mains and pressure pipes.

 

Trenchless vs. Traditional Pipe Repair

The use of no-dig pipe repair products for gas mains can result in the reduction of costs associated with pipe replacement and procedures for strengthening corroded pipe walls. Trenchless pipe replacement and no-dig repair products also allow for the repair of underground infrastructure without damaging property and creating traffic disruptions. Traditional gas main repair procedures may take several days to complete, while in one case our products have been used to repair 46 joints in a gas main, with the supply back in service within 8 hours.

 

Our Gas Sealer Sleeve

In collaboration with Consolidated Edison, KeySpan Energy and NYGAS, we have engineered and patented a pipe repair product for gas mains: the Gas Sealer Sleeve. Here are the features and benefits of this product:

 

  • Made of durable, stainless steel material
  • Long-term sealing of leaks, cracks, corroded areas and joints
  • Installation can be completed in just 30 minutes
  • Comes in a range of diameters, lengths and steel core thicknesses
  • Can be used for pipes from 4” to 54” in diameter
  • Cast iron sleeves available for repair of low (0.25-0.5 psi) to medium (15 psi) pressure  pipe systems, and steel sleeves available for high (up to 150 psi) pressure systems

 

At Link-Pipe, we offer a range of pipe repair products for use after trenchless pipe replacement. Our inventory includes grouting sleeves, end sealers and pressure seals—all of which are our own patented technology. With nearly four decades of experience in the industry, we can guarantee that we have the expertise to recommend the ideal repair product for your applications. Contact us today for quality no-dig pipe repair products and excellent service!
