Tritorc Split Sleeve Repair Clamp (SSRC) offers emergency pipeline repair solutions which are economical, bolt-together fitting consisting of two halves which is designed to allow both temporary and permanent repairs to damaged pipelines. The SSRC clamp halves are joined by means of nearly tangential bolting, in such a manner as to produce a high integrity pressure vessel around the affected area of the damaged pipeline.
Primary sealing is provided by the highest quality molded elastomer seals appropriately selected for compatibility with the pipeline?s product, its environment, and the operating temperature range. The elastomeric sealing is accomplished via compression of two circumferential and two intersecting longitudinal packing seals, which, upon full compression, form a continuous pressure barrier. Seal material is retained in the seal grooves by utilization of a ?pre-compressed seal tension groove?design. This allows simplified replacement of the seals in the field thereby eliminating expensive factory seal replacements.
All our pipeline repair clamps are designed, manufactured and factory tested in accordance with ?Specification for End closures, Connectors and Swivels and ASME Section VIII Division 1&2.
The clamps are fully hydrostatically pressure tested to 1.5 x times the rated working pressure to check and prove integrity of connections and seals.
The clamps and fitted with 1⁄2?or 1?venting ports as per client requirements.
