The Steel Cylinder Reinforcement (SCR) system for repairing structurally deficient pipelines or upgrading existing pipelines includes installing two half pipe sections around the host pipeline to create a flexible cylinder enclosing the pipeline. A seal ring will be inserted at each end of the enclosure to seal between the host pipeline and new enclosure. The annular space will then be filled with an expansive grout then pressurized to cause rounding of the enclosure and maintained until the grout has set. The seal rings and system are specifically designed to allow for this rounding despite the host pipeline being out-of-round or having irregularities. Rounding of the enclosure is very important in order to optimize/minimize the required enclosure plate thickness and assure the host pipe stresses are transferred symmetrically to the new enclosure.
The system can be utilized for a single section repair or incorporate a continuous welded/sealed enclosure on a contiguous host pipeline. The work may be phased as the design allows reinforced sections to be terminated then resumed at a later date without the need for modification.
