Due to the nature of the application and high risk associated with hot work, Quickflange™ was selected as an alternative cold work solution to carry out a tie-in for a replacement spool in an onshore refinery.
Following the award of the scope from the client, ICR developed a virtual/online training course to train Seaharvest’s 2 technicians so they could carry out the repair. The client’s maintenance crew cut the pipe at 11am, and by 12 noon Seaharvest technicians had the flange installed. By 3pm the flange and been hydrotested to 50bar, the crew had completed the scope and left the site.
