The VPG Rapid Response Clamp was engineered to contain leakage from damaged pipework under pressure faster and with less potential for harm to the operator than all competitive systems on the market. The RRP is by far the fastest method to repair a pipe under pressure. Developed originally for use in combat vessels, the Pipe Repair Technology is now available in three variants.

The Clamp has application across a variety of industries including energy, oil and gas, mining, refining, aviation, maritime, chemical and food industries. A major design advantage is that each clamp covers a wide diameter range. Only 8 different sizes are required to span the standard range 38mm to 930mm. Clamps to suit larger diameters are available on request.

Each Clamp can be ordered with either Nitrile as a Sealing material, ( covers 90%+ of applications including drinking water ), or High-performance HNBR for higher temperature applications eg steam pipes).

 

✔️ Increased Personnel and Asset Survivability.

✔️ Reduction in Potential Environmental Damage

✔️ Improved Protection of Assets

✔️ Improved Ability to Maintain Production

✔️ Lower Total Cost of Ownership

Instructions for Use

The VPG Rapid Response Clamp is fully self contained and is designed to be operated by one person with no requirement for additional tools.

Extensive evaluation by personnel from Damage Control / Combat Survivability arms of the Australian, Canadian and US Navies as well as leading mining, oil and gas and chemical companies has shown that within a few uses, the VPG Rapid Response Clamp can be applied 5-6 times faster than Jubilee or Banding type patches with less leakage.

Pressure Handling

COMMERCIAL

The VPG Commercial Rapid Response Clamp was developed in response to customer demand for a more economical Rapid Response Clamp, utilising the same patented features. The Commercial Clamp has reduced thickness Seal material 3/16" inch ( 4mm ) and incorporates a high strength, glass reinforced Handle. This Rapid Response Clamp will seal to 147 psi ( 10Bar )*

MILSPEC

Original VPG Rapid Response Clamp was developed to improve Combat Survivability of Australian Navy assets. It is fully constructed from premium high stainless strength steels and can cope with sealing over up to 1/8" inch ( 3mm ) weld due to its 9/32" inch ( 7mm ) thick Labyrinth Seal. This Rapid Response Clamp will seal to 294 psi ( 20Bar )*

HP 40

The VPG Rapid Response Clamp - HP 40 was developed in response to customer demand for increased pressure and temperature handling capabilities utilising the same patented features. The HP 40 Clamp has significantly increased strength but maintains the same easy to use, quick action features. Developed primarily for high pressure steam and certain Oil and Gas market applications. This Rapid Response Clamp will seal to a maximum 600 psi ( 40Bar ) *
