Posted in on Fri, Sep 27, 2013

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has issued an Advisory Bulletin to alert pipeline operators of a T.D. Williamson, Inc. (TDW) Leak Repair Clamp (LRC) recall issued by TDW on June 17, 2013.  The recall covers all TDW LRCs of any pressure class and any size. The LRCs may develop a dangerous leak due to a defective seal.  Hazardous liquid and natural gas pipeline operators should verify if they have any TDW LRCs subject to the recall by reviewing their records and equipment for installation of these LRCs. Operators with TDW LRCs should discontinue use immediately and contact TDW for further recall instructions. Operators can obtain recall information through TDW’s Web site at http://lrc.tdwilliamson.com/ or by calling TDW at 888-770-7085.  This document can be viewed on the PHMSA home page at: http://www.phmsa.dot.govhttp://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-08-28/html/2013-20910.htm
