KELOWNA, BC — Magna-Skin Technologies Inc. has developed a magnetically fastened rubber pipe patch, which can temporarily patch holes in steel chutes, hoppers and pneumatic conveying systems. The Magna-Patch combines an abrasion-resistant rubber material and a robust magnet. The company says its central reasons for inventing the patching system was “to reduce downtime, material loss and cleanup costs associated with highly abrasive conveying systems” — such as pneumatic conveying, gravity feed and slurry piping. In short, the patch gives operators and maintenance workers a quick, secure way to repair holes in steel pipes, flat-back elbows and other steel-based equipment. The patch, placed over a worn-out area, is held in place magnetically, at least until the next scheduled downtime.
