In response to the BP oil spill, a small Canadian company called Rampart Detection Systems developed the ultimate failsafe for the oil and natural gas industry.
Rampart Detection Systems is a small Canadian company that specializes in the development of products for the police; security; counter terrorism and industry using advanced electromagnetic technologies.
After the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, scientists at Rampart were determined to prevent the possible recurrence of another similar disaster. So, they invented a long-term, failsafe solution capable of practical application to existing and future oil and gas production no matter the location.
The idea was inspired by natural phenomena that occurred over a century ago. In 1905 a lightning conductor on top of a chimneystack at Hartley Vale was struck by lightning. The lightning pinched the copper conductor shut. It took researchers several decades to determine that magnetic forces were the sole cause of the conductor crimping. Rampart’s scientists were familiar with this obscure event and used the phenomena as the basis for creating their novel, patent pending Magnetic Crimping technology.
In the case of a garden hose, there are two ways to stop water from gushing out of the nozzle: one is to shut it off manually and the other is to crimp it.
Unfortunately, what works with rubber does not apply to steel. Any attempt to stop oil or gas gushing out of a typical industry steel pipe by crimping it will generally result in the pipe cracking above and below the crimp.
Rampart designed a revolutionary new magnetic crimping technology. This patent pending system uses the extraordinary power of intense magnetic forces to permanently crimp most forms of metal pipes, including the steel pipes commonly used throughout the oil and gas industry. Rampart can accomplish this without any risk of cracking.
The new technology could not only have effectively stopped the Deepwater Horizon leak but it will also provide the ultimate failsafe for controlling similar blow-out disasters from happening again within the global oil and natural gas industry.
This is how it works:
First, a proprietary Rampart magnetic crimp collar covers the circumference of the pipe. Then, very intense magnetic fields are generated within the pipe casing. And finally, highly interactive electric currents are injected into the casing.
Massive electrodynamic interactions cause an instantaneous crimping effect with very little heat generated. The magnetic forces affect the atomic structure of the pipe so that the crimping energy being generated causes the pipe walls to momentarily act like soft plastic thus ensuring a leak proof permanent seal. And because the magnetic forces are evenly distributed throughout the whole interior of the pipe wall there is no risk of cracking.
The entire magnetic crimping development process is self-funded. And a new corporate entity was created called Rampart Environmental Solutions to develop magnetic crimping technology as the ultimate failsafe application in preventing uncontrollable oil and gas blow-outs and leaks. In a time where serious environmental, social, and economic problems are never ending, Rampart is offering a proven scientific solution to the most pressing environmental problem of the day.
