Stop It Pipe Repair System - Saving Time & Money

On a recent feedermain installation in the City of Winnipeg, a threaded outlet on a custom made pressure test plug cracked. Because the plug was custom made, the delivery time for a new one was long and the cost was also very high. This seemed like a perfect application for the Stop It Pipe Repair System.

The threaded outlet surface was prepared by scraping and sanding down the surface to give a good surface for the repair tape to bond do. A hole was drilled at the end of crack to ensure the crack would not propagate any further. The hole, crack, and threaded outlet were filled with the FIX STIX epoxy and the entire outlet was wrapped in the fiberglass tape. Within 1 hour of starting, the repair tape had hardened and the plug was ready for testing. It passed the pressure test and the contractor was able to continue on with the feedermain install saving weeks of lost time and money.

National Skills Competition 2017

From May 31 to June 3rd the National Skills competition was held here, in Winnipeg, MB. We were able to help support UA Canada with the various mechanical building products that we offer. The students were able to demonstrate their skills in the Steam/Pipe Fitting category by installing gas piping systems that incorporated gas fired unit heaters. We were able to provide the Beacon Morris line of unit heaters for this category, and were very happy with its performance. Congratulations to all those who participated in the skills competition!
