BlackDiamond was designed by ClockSpring|NRI to provide pipeline owners and operators with a cost effective solution and alternative to repair clamps, welded sleeves and pipeline replacement. Unlike fiberglass repair systems, BlackDiamond offers reduced thickness solutions. BlackDiamond exhibits minimal creep and its stiffness approaches that of the steel.
Due to the flexibility of the design of the system and various kit options, BlackDiamond can accommodate nearly any installation environment. Limited excavation space and clearance only highlights the use of BlackDiamond, due to the simplistic installation procedure of the product. BlackDiamond can be installed on horizontal and vertical pipe with ease. Damp conditions do not affect the product. Pipe temperatures can range from –20F to 180F for application of BlackDiamond. For instances of severe pitting, ClockSpring|NRI has a proprietary epoxy based filler that can be pre applied so that loads are evenly transferred to the wrap system.
All materials specified in an engineering assessment come to the job site precut to length and packaged in pre-measured containers. ClockSpring|NRI QC program ensures that kits arrive with all the materials necessary to complete the job. No additional tools are required.
BlackDiamond is compliant to DOT regulation, ASME B31, .8, .4, .G and PCC-2 Art 4.1, 4.2 and API 570. Please refer to API 570, Section 8.1.4 – Non-welding Repairs (On-Stream)
