XHAB™ Pipeline Rehabilitation Technology
X-HAB™ Pipeline Rehabilitation Technology is an automated system for the external coating of damaged and and/or corroded pipelines over long distances while the pipeline remains in operation. The X-HAB™ process involves helically wrapping multiple layers of an Ultra-High Strength Steel (UHSS) over an existing pipeline, using a fully automated wrapping machine. X-HAB™ technology has multiple benefits including; enabling operators to proactively reduce their risk profile by reducing leakage rates on pipelines, avoids soil contamination when compared to pipeline replacement, a single solution for multiple types on anomaly repairs, and can be used to reduce hoop stress in an operating pipeline to meet class-change requirements.
