Pipeline isolating device: Is there anything newer or better?

Pipeline isolating device: Is there anything newer or better?

Pipeline isolating device: Is there anything newer or better?

(OP)
Hi everybody

I'm looking for the art's state about Pipeline isolating devices.
I see the typical and well known Monoblock joints and/or flanged joints, but someone knows about some improvement in this technical or any better or newer device to isolating catodically protected pipelines?

Thanks in advance

RE: Pipeline isolating device: Is there anything newer or better?

None I've come across but I'm willing to find out.

What sort of improvement or "better" did you have in mind?

I think these are in the box of "If it isn't broken why fix it?"

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

Thanks Littleinch.
I'm not looking for an specific improvement. But it has been the same for a long time.
I was reviewing the standards: NACE RP 0286 becomes SP0286 in 2007 and it has been all about it.

As you say: If it isn't broken why fix it?
