Stronger than steel.
RESTORE MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE OPERATING PRESSURE WITHOUT SYSTEM SHUTDOWN.
Hydra Dragon® kits are engineered to provide strength that enables a pipe to be restored to maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) without system shutdown. The system is comprised of water curing urethane resin impregnated in a biaxial fiberglass, thoroughly and independently tested at both the university and international laboratory levels.
The first component, and most exclusive feature of the Hydra Dragon system, is the selection of Biaxial Fiberglass material, which provides reinforcement in the hoop and axial directions and is among the strongest available non-metallic repair material on the market. The second component is the binding force in the system. This system is an impregnated urethane resin, which allows for uniform loading throughout the entire wrap. Our third component, for repairs that require surfaces to be modified (e.g. heavy pitting or irregular shapes); the high modulus filler can be applied. These components form a composite system that is stronger than steel. The structural system forms a pipe around a pipe, and each successive wrap increases the pressure rating. Minimal creep ensures a long service life.
Hydra Dragon kits require an engineering assessment to compile service information such as substrate material, wall loss, operating temperature, pressure ranges and environment exposure. Our software analyzes this information to determine the number of wraps required for each pipe repair.
See it in action.
Hydra Dragon is the premier fiberglass wrap system used to rehabilitate and restore original operational strength to damaged, corroded and eroded piping systems.
Hydra Dragon kits can be installed on tees, elbows, straight runs of pipe, confined spaces and irregular surfaces that require structural reinforcement or leak containment. The adhesive properties of the urethane allow it to be applied to most substrates.
Hydra Dragon kits are compliant to DOT regulation, ASME PCC-2 Article 4.1, 4.2 ANSI ISO-24817.
