Team Commercializes New SmartStop Isolation Technology
TEAM's innovative SmartStop technology raises safety and productivity standards for hot tapping and line intervention applications to new heights.
FREMONT, CA: Team, a leading provider of integrated, digitally-enabled asset performance assurance and optimization solutions, has declared the commercial launch of its proprietary double block and bleed SmartStop Isolation Technology.
"We are excited to announce that after extensive in-house testing and several successful field tests, we have commercialized our new, patent pending SmartStop Isolation Technology," stated Chad Murray, TEAM's President of Mechanical and Onstream Services Group. "TEAM has a long track record of providing integrated solutions to our end markets, which drive safety, reliability, and productivity improvements for our clients' assets. This new integrated solution offering combines our engineering and manufacturing capabilities and provides material traceability and quality assurance. TEAM's research and development group spent several years developing and testing a new double block and bleed line isolation technology which increases isolation integrity and overall safety. This new technology reduces total project execution times and in turn, our clients' overall costs, further strengthening our competitive advantages in the hot tapping industry."
TEAM's innovative SmartStop technology raises safety and productivity standards for hot tapping and line intervention applications to new heights. The innovative technique incorporates a self-energizing, dual seal system within a single conventional line stop fitting, minimizing the number of pipe modifications required to securely execute a double block and bleed isolation. Furthermore, the patent-pending system makes use of a novel guide rail with fewer moving parts and degrees of freedom, resulting in more dependable isolation head insertion and retraction. These advancements minimize the need for sophisticated hydraulics or pivot points, which are common failure mechanisms in rival equipment. SmartStop outperforms competitive line stop solutions in terms of safety, dependability, and critical asset protection.
