Canusa's TBK-60 - Directional Drilling Kit is a high performance system designed to protect welded joints on 2 and 3-layer PE, PP and FBE coated pipelines in directional drills. The system consists of three components: a primary heat-shrinkable sleeve which provides corrosion protection at the joint; a secondary heat-shrinkable sleeve which functions as a sacrificial wear cone; and a high-build epoxy top coat at the ends to provide additional protection to the system. The system provides effective protection against abrasion and wear forces that occur during the pull-through operation. The system is fully compatible with cathodic protection systems, resists cathodic disbondment and is designed for a wide range of operating temperatures.
The Canusa Wrapid Sleeve™ Type TBK-60 is a one-piece wrap-around sleeve designed for corrosion protection of buried and exposed steel pipelines operating up to 60°C (140°F). Wrapid Sleeve™ Type TBK-60 consists of a cross-linked polyolefin backing, coated with a technologically advanced protective adhesive which effectively bonds to steel substrates and common pipeline coatings including polyethylene and fusion bonded epoxy.
Features & Benefits
Long-Term Corrosion Protection: Canusa’s TBK - Directional Drilling Kit provides superior corrosion protection because of the protective shrink sleeve/epoxy primer combination. This primary sleeve provides excellent resistance to cathodic disbondment and excellent durability against abrasion and chemical attack. The result is effective, long term protection against corrosion. TBK’s are available in a wide range of high performance adhesive systems designed specifically for your application.
Superior Abrasion Resistance: Canusa’s TBK - Directional Drilling Kit utilizes multilayer sleeves coated with a heat activated adhesive. The inherent performance properties associated with the sleeve adhesive reduces damage of the coating during pipeline installation and provides excellent resistance to soil stresses and pipe movements. The narrow, epoxy coated sacrificial sleeve is applied to the leading edge of the primary sleeve. The hardened epoxy topcoat provides the additional abrasion and wear resistance to withstand the forces during directional drilling.
Convenient Epoxy Kit: Epoxy primer is supplied in kits with all tools required to apply this system. The convenient ready-to-mix epoxy packaging minimizes installation time and labor costs while promoting high production rates.
