Protecting marine-side rising main

Published:  10 September, 2019

On a recent Yorkshire Water contract J N Bentley of Skipton was faced with the complexity of replacing approximately 25m of a 350mm diameter rising main pipe at Whitby, which was situated within a shaft.

J N Bentley employed PMP Utilities of Burnley to install the rising main after

using WINN & COALES (DENSO) SeaShield 80 system to provide protection from the sea

water. To make the installation easier the SeaShield 80 was applied to the barrel lengths of the pipe prior to lifting the 25m long pipe into place. PMP Utilities then applied the system to the bolted flanges in-situ.

SeaShield 80 System comprises Denso S105 Paste, Denso Marine Piling Tape, Densoclad Tape and Denso SeaShield Smart Band. Densyl Mastic was also used to profile the joints.
