Glass lined vessel saved with Tantalum repair

This glass lined reactor had extensive damage in an inlet nozzle. The decision was made to blind the nozzle rather than repair. The charge line was moved to an alternate inlet. This repair was performed in a Phosgene enclosure for a Fortune 100 company using a tantalum patch. Our technicians are certified in confined space entry. In this case the technician is wearing a full face respirator with 5 minute escape pack.
