Specifically designed for marine and offshore installations and with all major classification society approvals, the RISE System can be used to seal multi-cable penetrations or pipe penetrations. RISE consists of two different components:
• Rubber insert sleeves
• Silicone-based fire resistant and water repellent sealant
Manufactured by Beele Engineering, when RISE is exposed to heat, the rubber sleeves expand five to ten times their original volume, creating a strong rubber mass within the penetration. The sealant, which is applied to both sides of the penetration, also cures to a rubber-like mass that withstands tremendous pressures, enabling it to achieve its gas and watertight ratings. RISE is tested and approved for A-0 up to A-60 classification and has recently been successfully tested to 7 bar pressure. However, in the event of a leak, catastrophic failure of the entire transit is virtually impossible, unlike the block systems. Cable changes require no disassembly of the entire transit. Only the area being modified in the transit is opened for insertion of additional cables. Block systems require disassembly and replacement of all transit components following any alteration for additional cable passages in pressurized applications. There is no potential for missing components. RISE Sealing-System installation on new or existing platforms requires 60% less labor in terms of pre-engineering, preparation, installation and test-cycle completion. Results may vary with specific application, and references are available upon request to CSD Sealing Systems–North America and/or W&O Supply, Inc.
RISE is Type Approved for cable and pipe transits by ABS, BV, US Navy, China Classification Society, DNV, Germanischer Lloyd, Lloyd’s Register, Korean Register of Shipping, Nippon Haji Kyokai, Registro Italiano Navale, Transport Canada and U.S. Coast Guard. RISE holds EC Wheelmark Certificates issued by Bureau Veritas.
