The LE-RAP packaging system is a reusable pipe packaging
system which integrates lifting eves designed to handle
pipe packages of up to 6 metric tonne within an ambient
temperature of -10 oc < 14 °Fl.
The LE-RAP packaging system is composed of rugged galvanized steel structures called frames. The frames contain high density polyethylene segments reinforced with galvanized rectangular steel tubing. Like all RAP systems, each package requires four frames. In the case of the LE-RAP'" packaging system, the center frames have lifting eves.
Each joint of pipe is placed in its own matching diameter recess. This feature reduces the risk of corrosion and impact damage.
After assembly, the package is secured by bolts linking the bottom member of the structure to the ends of the solid bars which extend through the top segments of each frame. The package is secured by applying a make-up torque of 70 ft-lb <95 Nm> to the bolts using a properly calibrated torque wrench, not by estimation.
The package is designed to be lifted with hooks attached to the lifting eves, but can also be lifted by forklift or slings. The LE-RAP'" packaging system is available for tubular sizes ranging from 2 3/8" through 9 5/8".
