On-Line Leak Sealing & Repair


On-Line Leak Repair & Sealing

Industrial Leak Repair – Taking the Pressure off You

Pioneering leak-sealing technology and unrivaled on-site service. It’s this unique combination that gives Furmanite the edge and enables you to partner with ‘The Standard’ in leak sealing.

Since 1929, we’ve created groundbreaking and patented industrial leak sealing technology; and we consistently provide these solutions with the highest level of service to customers around the world. We have millions of leak sealing man-hours under our belts and extensive engineering field support facilities with written procedures that conform to all international quality standards. Because of that truly unique expertise, Furmanite has long been the world’s preferred engineering support partner for sealing every type of leak in every industry sector.

Keeping Assets Earning

The priority for every industrial plant is to stay on-line. At Furmanite we help maximize up-time by sealing leaks on-line, on-site and under pressure. This means you keep producing the ‘product’ while we solve your leak problems. You save time, energy and – most importantly – you save money. All this, while simultaneously reducing noise and emission levels, erosion damage, as well as improving plant safety.

On-site Specialists – Whatever the Process or Problem, We can Help

Whether it’s steam, hydrocarbons or gas – including over 300 types of chemical – at temperatures ranging from sub-zero to 1112°F (600°C), and at pressures up to 5,076 psi (350 bar g), Furmanite offers a leak-sealing solution. From low cost banding or peened wire for narrow gap flanges and bonnets to solutions based on ring clamps or engineered enclosures, we’ll offer up the most effective and cost-efficient solution. And if there isn’t an immediate solution, we’ll create one. In fact, almost every leak sealing technique used today was first developed by Furmanite.

Working for a Better Environment

At Furmanite, we take our commitment to protect the environment as seriously and our commitment to the customer:

  • Our solutions maintain the integrity of your process systems.
  • Keeping systems on-line reduce the amount of potentially harmful and polluting fugitive emissions released into the atmosphere.
  • Our goal is to extend the life of your plant components. ‘Repair rather than replace’ enables you to avoid the unnecessary re-manufacturing and replacement of equipment
