The RidgeBack™ system, which is rated to 250°F, prevents pipe wall collapse with a mechanical solution that provides concentrated clamping force to stop active leaks up to 150 psi. Size-specific metallic compression bands and a unique ridged design fiber-reinforced plastic shell localize compressive forces for greater sealing capability.
