FT Pipeline Systems is the exclusive distributor in the UK for the Shawcor company Canusa-CPS.
Our range of high quality heat shrink sleeves ( jointing sleeves) form a permanently bonded watertight seal on all diameters of pipe. Their flexibility ensures perfect seals on straight runs, junctions and bends and have been used in the UK for over 30 years.
In recent years we have begun to market some of their other corrosion protection products to suit different customer needs. Examples of installations include:
- A large installation in the north of the country involved the supply of the traditional Canusa heat shrink sleeves – CanusaWrap K-60 – with over 2000 field joints protected. The same scheme also used 450 bulk rolls of Canusa’s cold applied tapes, WrapidBond™ and WrapidCoat™ on the pipe to fitting connections. This option removes the preheat requirements seen with the traditional sleeves and takes out the risk to mainline coatings associated with pre-heating.
- Another 25km scheme for a large diameter steel main used Canusa’s GTS-PE three layer shrink sleeve, a high performance sleeve with EPrimer. 2500 field joints were protected.
- Following on closely to this was the first phase of a project in northern England for the construction of a new steel main which also used the K60 heat shrink sleeves for 1400 welded steel joints. The second phase will be supplied in 2018 and will see over double the number of sleeves to complete the job.
Canusa’s mainline repair products were used on all three of these schemes to fix any damage found on the mainline coatings.
Another scheme of note involved the supply of GTS-PP sleeves. This is a specialist high performance polypropylene shrink sleeves solution using EPrimer and requiring induction blankets to ensure a high quality installation. As with all the schemes supplied, FTPS and Canusa CPS worked together to provide accurate and relevant information and training on site as required.
