3X ENGINEERING, is a company leader in pipeline maintenance using composite technology.
Mainly operating in Oil & Gas industry, our expertise also includes Power Plants and Construction sector. For over 25 years, 3X has developed a large range of products for pipeline repair / pipeline protection and performed many successful composite repairs worldwide. At 3X we not only manufacture and commercialise our own products, but we also offer complete pipeline repair services, from the design of the repair to onsite installation.
Today represented by over 40 distributors all around the world, we are able to quickly operate onshore, offshore and subsea to reinforce and rehabilitate pipelines suffering from corrosion defects and mechanical damages.
3X products have been going through rigorous qualification and testing programs to ensure they are in meeting performance objectives in accordance with international standards. All products’ capabilities are certified by third party such as ABS, Bureau Veritas, TUV, Lloyd’s Register … and over 10 patents are pending or approved worldwide.
Designed according to ISO 24.817 & ASME PCC-2 international standards, R4D is a composite wrap repair system for pipelines and piping suffering from various defects (external corrosion, internal corrosion, severe abrasion, erosion, pitting, mechanical damages, dent, crack, leak, through wall defects, weld defect, pinhole…). Made of Kevlar® tape and epoxy resin, this solution is engineered to restore pipe original integrity without shutdown. It is an alternative to metal clamp, welded sleeve or pipe replacement. R4D is used for gas pipe repair, oil pipe repair and water pipe repair(onshore/offshore/subsea).
R4D-S is a permanent underwater pipe repair system. Based on R4D technology and using Kevlar® tape and ceramic reinforced subsea curing epoxy resin, this product reinforces subsea pipe and riser. It applies to both external and internal corrosion, dents and leaks in subsea environment.
TANKiT® and REINFORCEKiT® PATCH are two composite patch repair systems for damaged tanks and vessels suffering from internal or external corrosion and leaking defect.
TANKiT® is an emergency solution ready to be used in specific cases. REINFORCEKiT® PATCH is the solution for a lasting tank reinforcement and can be applied in all conditions after engineering and calculations.
STOPKiT® is the only efficient pipe repair system in the world able to seal a leak online in few minutes (application under pressure up to 80 bars, no shutdown required). STOPKiT® is used for gas pipeline repair, oil pipeline repair and water pipeline repair (onshore/offshore/subsea).
ROLLERKiT® is not only a preventive system for corrosion under support (CUS) but also a curative system that repairs the pipeline support thanks to the combination of three components (pad, fiberglass and epoxy resin).
ROLLERKiT® can be installed both on support (any kind of pipe support) or on pipe (diameters from 4’’ to 56’’), whether they are new or old installations.
REFLANGEKiT® is a SF6 leak sealing technique for flanges applicable online. The concept is based on a double shell system that encapsulates the leaking flange. This system is non-invasive and is easily removable without damage.
REINFORCEKiT® BEAM is a composite repair system that reinforces structures (beams, poles, catenary supports …) suffering from corrosion. Made of metal inserts, Kevlar® tape and epoxy resin this technology can be applied without stopping production or traffic.
DKiT® is a multilayer coating product designed to protect structures from corrosion. It avoids water infiltration, protects from climatic aggressions and impacts and thus ensures structure integrity and sustainability.
3X is the exclusive French distributor for Bristle Blaster® products. This MONTI technology is used to remove corrosion and coating, clean the surface and create a rough surface texture. The surface quality achieved is comparable to the one using other traditional grit blasting method.
