Product Information

This Leak Repair Kit for Tankers/Railcars is the ideal emergency solution for temporary repair of large holes and gashes. It features a 13" x 23" patch with neoprene gasket facing that secures in place with a heavy-duty stainless steel support frame and bolts. Unlike other railcar leak kits, this puncture repair patch does not require wrapping any chains or cables around the vessel.

Contents of this kit come in a convenient and portable metal carry case. It is compact enough to fit on-board vehicles, store alongside other workplace spill kit equipment, and stage near areas of large volume container storage.

Prepare for Emergencies

This kit is a must-have for first responders to accident sites involving tankers or rail vehicles transporting large volumes of hazardous contents. It provides an efficient temporary repair option for minimizing spills due to puncture damage, or, when tanker trucks roll over.

The patch is suitable for use on flat or concave surfaces: its support frame tightens with bolts to conform to, and seal, the vessel. Its large patch area offers a good method for controlling leaks to prevent environmental contamination from spills.

Patch Installation Instructions

  1. Assemble: Select appropriate size T-bolt and insert through the neoprene patch facing (extra holes are provided in the patch/support unit to allow for puncture holes close to obstruction). Attach wing nut over back up plate and frame assembly. Thread 16 bolts along sides of the support frame.
  2. Apply: Insert T-bolt though the vessel hole and turn to straddle it. Run the wing nut down and tighten to install patch in place so it seals puncture site.
  3. Conform: Tighten the sixteen bolts around the support frame edges to conform the patch to the vessel, as necessary.
