REDLINE SMARTPAD SYSTEM
Cogbill’s RedLine SmartPad System (patent pending) offers revolutionary corrosion protection to industrial piping systems. Millions are spent every year on lifting and re-coating pipe surfaces damaged by friction and metal-to-metal contact that lead to galvanic corrosion. Such corrosion at pipe support points not only eats away at budgets but can also lead to costly shutdowns and even catastrophic failures.
Our RedLine SmartPad System integrates the use of time-proven materials with the latest technologies to create faster, safer, smarter, and more efficient pipe supports, at a far greater value.
Installs in seconds
Does not require epoxy
Quick removal and reinstallation
Allows quick pipe inspection
underneath the pad
Reusable on Similar-size pipes
Offers NEMA 4 watertight seal
Can be installed on live lines
No welding permits or line shutdown required
Ideal for use in marine and coastal environments where salt, air, and moisture lead to billions of dollars in cost due to corrosion.
Prevents friction and wear to coated steel pipes.
Can be used as load-bearing thermal insulators in harsh cold or cryogenic applications.
Enables rapid removal, inspection, and reinstallation in a matter of seconds.
REDLINE SMARTPAD SYSTEM
Our SmartPad’s exoskeleton consists of a fiber-reinforced composite material that has a high load capacity rating with a low friction surface. This allows our SmartPad to effectively support and protect a pipe as it moves over a beam or support location. Our proprietary composite material is UV stable and load tested to ensure peak performance in the most demanding environments such as marine, off-shore, and other highly corrosive applications.
Our SmartPad’s Hydroseal gasket consists of a closed-cell structure resembling a memory-foam mattress for pipes. Once installed, the gasket compresses, cushions, and conforms to the pipe’s outer surface, effectively dampening vibration and improving impact resistance. The key feature of our Hydroseal gasket is the watertight NEMA 4 seal it creates between a pipe and our SmartPad’s exoskeleton. This has been a prevailing problem associated with similar composite wear pad systems that depend on epoxy for a watertight seal. Installer error in an epoxy-based system could lead to moisture traps and severe corrosion issues that could remain hidden and undetected for years; a problem our patented system remedies.
Grooves/Guides that guide the SmartBands and prevent them from sliding out of place
Sloped edges of the SmartPad help it slide off the edge of a support and maintain its position if the pipe moves over the support
Custom lengths, thicknesses, and widths available
Hydroseal gasket creates water-tight NEMA-4 seal between pipe and SmartPad
Prevents faulty installation
Dampens vibration and improves impact resistance
Our SmartBands are heavy-duty, smooth-surface, glass-fiber-reinforced polymer straps. They effectively secure the SmartPads to pipes, thus eliminating metal-to-metal contact. The system reduces installation time to seconds and eliminates the need to wait for adhesives to cure. This also allows the pads to be removed and reinstalled during inspections, or to be removed and reused elsewhere on similar-size pipes. This is not possible with permanent epoxy systems.
Heavy-duty fiberglass-reinforced polymer
Installs in seconds
Allows quick installation and removal
Non-metallic band and buckle
Non-metallic material prevents corrosion
Inner surface of band is designed to protect pipe coating
No cure time needed
Available in a variety of materials, sizes, and lengths
High load and long lifespan
Highly engineered tools used to easily install our SmartPads using our composite SmartBands. The tools are capable of applying high rates of mechanical force quickly and easily. This ensures the SmartPads do not slip and their Hydroseal gaskets create a NEMA 4 tight seal to prevent water from ever invading the protected side of the pipe and leading to corrosion. The tools have a built-in clipping mechanism to cut off excess banding material.
