PLCS Metal Mold Encapsulation

Metal Mold (PDF)

To seal leaks at pressures above 25 psi, it is necessary to use a metal mold.

Step 1: PLCS designs these on our CAD system. They are usually custom fabricated from steel in two halves, which are bolted together on the pipe.

Step 2: Pipe is prepared by grit blasting and priming

Step 3: The sealant is mixed and poured into the mold.

Step 4: The mold is capped and then pressurized with bottled nitrogen to above mains pressure. A gauge registers the sealant pressure. The nitrogen pressure is left on for 24-48 hours and then the mold is removed.

The steel mold belongs to the customer and can be reused many times. With a little care it will last many years. The whole operation is very simple and easy to learn by your own employees.

Field technicians are available for on-site instruction and supervision.
