Monolitic Isolation Fitting Specification
Monolithic isolation fittings shall be boltless and completely factory assembled in accordance with the appropriate requirements of ASTM, API, DIN and BS codes. All welds shall be butt weld construction. The dielectric isolation material shall be a thermosetting fiberglass epoxy material. Sealing shall be by two (2) static, self energized "0" ring seals housed in accurately machined grooves, fully protected from cavitation in full compliance with ASME design codes. Interior and exterior coating shall be a two part epoxy with a thickness of .010 to .012" (.25-.30mm) to within 2" of each end. Each unit shall be tested for Electrical (@5kv, 25 Mohm), Hydraulic (@ 1.5 x O.P.) and Weld (Ultrasonic/Magnetic Particle/Dye Penetrant). The Monolithic Isolation Fitting shall be the ElectroStop™ Isolation Fitting as manufactured by Pipeline Seal & Insulator, Inc., Houston, Texas.

Quality Assurance
Each monolithic isolation fitting shall be manufactured at a facility that has a Registered ISO 9001 :2000 Quality Management System. Copy of current ISO 9001 :2000 Registration shall be provided with material submittal.

The ElectroStopTM monolithic isolation fittings will serve as a positive leak proof, long lasting block against the flow of electric current in all piping systems. When you bury the ElectroStopTM isolation fitting you bury maintenance costs forever - an especially important feature for system operators and engineers.

Eliminates Short Circuits Bolts, sleeves and washers - the major source of short circuits in most isolation assemblies are eliminated with the ElectroStopTM isolation fitting.

Eliminates Field Assembly The ElectroStopTM isolation fitting is completely factory assembled and tested. There are no flanges, gaskets, nuts, bolts, sleeves or washers to handle and consequently no fluid leaks due to improper field assembly.

Is Less Expensive Purchase the ElectroStopTM isolation fitting for less than the cost of the component parts of insulated flange assemblies in most pipe sizes. Install the ElectroStopTM isolation fitting for less than the labor costs of installing an insulated flange assembly.

Is Coated Both Internally and Externally A two part epoxy is sprayed to a thickness of .010-.012" (.25 to .30mm) to within 2" (50.8mm) of each weld end.

Is 100% Hydrostatically Tested All ElectroStop fittings undergo hydrostatic and cyclic pressure tests at 1.5 times rated operating pressure in accordance with the latest ANSI standards. Testing is conducted between plates or end caps to ensure the most arduous conditions

Is 100% Electrically Tested All ElectroStop fittings undergo a electrical resistance and voltage test prior to shipping.

Is Completely Weld Inspected All ElectroStopTM fitting  undergo a weld inspection with combinations of ultrasonic (UT), magnetic partical (MT) and dye penetrant (LT) on all welds. In addition, X-ray tests can be conducted upon request.

Is Manufactured In Accordance With 150 9001 :2000 Quality Assurance Control over all stages of production is ensured by close adherence to an in-place and on going ISO 9001 :2000 quality assurance program which is constantly monitored and subject to periodic audit.
