Pipe & Drain Repairs
Pipe and drain repairs tend to fall into two categories, volatile and non-volatile. If you are in the former, then you may well operate in a sector where there is the on-going daily threat of explosion risk. If so, go to our CONDUCTORLINER tab on the website!
Perhaps you span both categories? If so, take time to read each website section, they’re relevant to YOU!
CIPP (Cure in Place Pipe)
Used for the lining of longer pipes, CIPP involves the insertion of a polyester felt sock, impregnated with resin, along the length of the pipe. Once in place the resin is activated by a flow of hot water, steam or a UV light train. As the resin goes off it hardens and seals the damaged pipe.
Pipe Patching (also known as a ‘Localised Liner’)
Unlike longer pipe repairs, where water or another method is used to activate the resin impregnated into the polyester sock, this method allows for a localised patch to be dragged along a pipe and put into position around the ‘damaged / deteriorating’ area, ahead of a balloon inflating and pressing the resin soaked patch against the damaged area of the pipe. As it dries / hardens the pipe is repaired by the hardening patch.
- Eliminates the need for excavation.
- Reduces disruption.
- Cost-effective solution
- Provides a durable and watertight seal
- Can be used to repair various pipe materials & diameters ranging from 50mm up to 2000mm.
