Stopping Infiltration At A Power Station
HydraTite® (Internal Joint Seal System)
Excessive water was entering through pipe joints and required constant water pumping at a Generating Station in Pennsylvania.
The proposed solution utilized the custom HydraTite Box Internal Joint Seal. This is a custom-manufactured seal frequently used to repair defective joints in box culverts, tunnels, and conduits with rectangular or non-circular cross-sections. It is also suitable for gravity and pressure applications.
After cleaning and prepping, each joint location was repaired with a HydraTite Box Seal. Eight joints were repaired with box seals; four on the cold-water side and four on the hot-water side.
The project was completed at a fraction of the time and cost it would have taken for pipe replacement.
