Temporary/permanent pipe repair - Guidelines

This document provides guidance on the applicability of a range of pipe repair clamps and pipe connectors to a range of pipe repair scenarios. These repair scenarios cover the most common types of damage/deterioration to piping systems, such as internal and external corrosion, and also cover situations where the damage is extensive. Repair clamps are typically used where the damage is localised and pipe connectors are used where the damage is more extensive. Examples of the different types of damage/deterioration are explained and the different types of clamps and connectors that are commonly used are illustrated.

Some of these research reports are very large, for information about expected download times please see our FAQs pages.
