High pressure leak prevention—improved performance and reliability from anaerobic thread sealing compounds* [Full subscriber]

Abstract Anaerobic thread sealing compounds have been available for many years and proven to be highly effective when used in a wide variety of standard pipe joints, especially when used in conjunction with tapered thread forms. This paper describes recent improvements in process reliability by developing improved performance on oiled surfaces and resistance to thermal cycling at elevated temperatures. Data are also presented demonstrating sealing capability more than 138 MPa (20 000 psi) after one hour room temperature cure. The resultant outcome was greater plant reliability, flexibility and profitability by use of the anaerobic sealants. Introduction Transport of fluid media…
