Title: AN APPARATUS FOR REPAIRING A PRESSURISED HOSE
Abstract:
An assembly (100, 200, 300) for repairing a pressurised hose (at least temporarily) comprises: a pair of clamp elements (100), a tubular element (200), and at least one bladder element (300). Each clamp (100) has arched, central portion (104) defining a semi-circular channel (108), flat, lateral portions (106) respectively provided along sides of the central portion (104), and an inner surface of the central portion defines a recessed mid-section (110) and end sections each side of the midsection (110) which define gripping formations (114). When the pair of clamp elements (100) are placed together they form a circular channel. The hollow, tubular element (200) matched to the circular channel and has an outer surface which defines a raised mid-section (202) matched to the recessed mid-sections (110) of the clamp elements (100) and end sections either side of the raised mid-section which defines gripping formations. The bladder element (300) is configured to be accommodated within the recessed mid-sections (110) of one of the clamp elements (100).
