Leakagetesting

Advantages by Using KaMOS® Patented RTJ Gasket:
••The flange is tested for leaks before the process pressure is applied
••Flanges that would not otherwise be leak or pressure tested (such as blind flanges to isolate spools) can be tested
••Certainty that the seal actually seals all contact surfaces (primary and secondary sides)
••Time of testing is significantly reduced, resulting in significantly less downtime due to leak testing
••KaMOS® Test Equipment is simple and easy to use
••Necessary volumes of nitrogen required for testing are minimal, which means that large quantities of test medium will be saved compared with conventional leak testing
••The method can also be used for continuous monitoring of seals by equipping the annular space with an indicator of gas pressure
••The pressurization line can be used to feed in liquid sealant in case of emergency
••Future surveillance for leakages of flanged connections
••The test will offer a safety benefit and an economic benefit because at an early stage it will detect flange connections which are basically leaky
••The KaMOS® method is DNV approved and is reported to have compared favour with conventional methods in test program run at the  Statoil F&U laboratory and has over the past year been adapted for a number of projects by Total, Cameron, BP and Shell UK and so on.
