in the Scope of Supply of the Coflexip Drinking Water Discharge System, to assure that tools and material will be readily
available. The Rilsan outer jacket repair kit is comprised of the following components:
- One hot air gun with air supply unit
- Three (3) air nozzles
- 1/2" Stainless steel bands with clamps and wrench
- Six (6) lbs. of Rilsan wire
- Tool box and consumables
Basically, the repair consists of melting the Rilsan material and applying it firmly, similarly to caulking. Both temperature
and pressure are required to make a proper repair.
The hot air gun should be set on 3, and held approximately one (1) inch from the repair area.
In most cases, it is not necessary to add Rilsan material; it is usually easier and better to melt Rilsan from around the
damage (cut, tear, etc...) and use that base material to fill in the damage.
If necessary, and depending on the size of the damage, stainless steel bands can be used to hold the Rilsan outer jacket
during and after the repair.
