Pipe Leak Repair Clamp Design

Pipe Leak Repair Clamp Design

Can anyone suggest me the guidelines for pipeline leak repair clamp(split-sleeve type) design?
Looking for books which have detailed calculation method of these types of clamps.
Thank you!!

RE: Pipe Leak Repair Clamp Design

Generally the vendors will provide this if you ask nicely (as part of buying it!) It's the seals that are the real issue for the bolted designs and the welded type are just slightly bigger bits of pipe.

I wouldn't have thought it was worth you trying to design your own one if that's what you're trying to do.

These guys make some of the best.

@LittleInch: Thanks for your reply!

Actually one of our fabricator has consulted us for this.
He wants to supply these types of clamps as he has all the facilities for doing so.
He just wants us to design it for them and present the design calculations to the client.
Hence need details for the same.
API 6H provides the general guidelines and directs us to Sect VIII Div 2.
But I am not able to trace any particular design method for this.
