“Innovation is a strategic pillar at Clock Spring, and we pride ourselves on providing the industries we serve with elegantly designed and exceptionally effective products,” says Clock Spring CEO and President Matthew Boucher. “Our new Leak Stopper™ delivers a safe and simple repair that is easy to install and cost-effective to deploy across a broad range of applications.”
With clamping strength of 5929 lbf, the Clock Spring Leak Stopper is ideal for oil and gas pipelines, refineries and petrochemical plants, and municipal water and gas distribution lines, replacing costly and cumbersome bolt-on products and clamps that require more time to install and introduce greater risk.
In a matter of seconds, a trained technician using a gauged clamping device can tension the specialised strap securely over a leak with a low-profile buckle. The result is a reliable, durable temporary repair that can be overwrapped with one of Clock Spring’s industry-leading composite solutions.
According to Buddy Powers, Vice president of Product Management, exceptional engineering has once again produced a superior product.
“Extensive testing has verified the Leak Stopper band’s exceptional break strength, establishing this product as a valuable and much needed tool for mitigating environmental impact and restoring safe operations,” he says.
