Hydratite is a mechanical remediation for pipe joint repairs. Hydratite is an EPDM rubber seal held in place with an individualized custom made seal that is held in place by stainless steel retaining bands. The seals can be interlocked to span long lengths of pipe, or a backing plate utilized to remediate expansion. The backing plate is held in place on one side of joint by a third retaining band. This allows for expansion, in conjunction with maintaining a tight seal. While the Hydratite repair cost is significantly less than other direct replacements, the duration of installation is reduced to days instead of standard alternatives consisting of weeks, it also provides a long term, economical, and efficient alternative without having to replace the existing joint seal. Hydratite is most typically applied on Bell & Spigot joints, Flanged joints, and expansion joints within the power generation pipelines, storm drain sewer systems, gas pipelines, potable water storage & distribution, etc.
