The patented FOAMBAG™ system was developed by Steve Vick International as a safe and effective method of sealing off gas mains for abandonment and has become a gas industry standard technique.
The procedure has been adapted and successfully implemented to seal contaminated pipes of varying sizes, shapes and orientations at a number of sites including Sellafield and Chapelcross.
SVI manufacture FOAMBAG™ kits suitable for sealing diameters from 5mm to 36” and these kits are available for purchase where appropriate. Alternatively we can design bespoke FOAMBAGS™ for individual projects, to seal larger diameters and non-standard shapes.
The National Nuclear Laboratory has carried out tests on the cured foam used in Steve Vick International’s FOAMBAG™ and associated systems and have rated it as having an 8-10 year lifespan in an area with a background radiation level of 7–9Sv.
