Canusa's TBK-60 - Directional Drilling Kit is a high performance system designed to protect welded joints on 2 and 3-layer PE, PP and FBE coated pipelines in directional drills. The system consists of three components: a primary heat-shrinkable sleeve which provides corrosion protection at the joint; a secondary heat-shrinkable sleeve which functions as a sacrificial wear cone; and a high-build epoxy top coat at the ends to provide additional protection to the system. The system provides effective protection against abrasion and wear forces that occur during the pull-through operation. The system is fully compatible with cathodic protection systems, resists cathodic disbondment and is designed for a wide range of operating temperatures.
The Canusa Wrapid Sleeve™ Type TBK-60 is a one-piece wrap-around sleeve designed for corrosion protection of buried and exposed steel pipelines operating up to 60°C (140°F). Wrapid Sleeve™ Type TBK-60 consists of a cross-linked polyolefin backing, coated with a technologically advanced protective adhesive which effectively bonds to steel substrates and common pipeline coatings including polyethylene and fusion bonded epoxy.
