Title:
SPLIT TEST BOOT
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2013/049343
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A boot assembly (16) that reliably seals the secondary containment area utilizing a split boot device that can be installed without disconnecting the primary piping (10) is disclosed. The seal includes first and second containment housings (22), each supporting a pair of partial ring shaped seals (24). The containment housings can be positioned about the primary and secondary pipes (10, 12) from opposing sides thereof so that disconnection of the primary pipe is not required to secure the seal in place. A clamp (20) secures the first containment housing relative to the second containment housing in a secured position in which a first pair of partial ring seals associated with the first containment housing and a second pair of partial ring shaped seals associated with the second containment housing cooperate to form a pair of continuous ring shaped sealing surfaces.
