Water and Waste Water

Improve water supply or collection system safety and integrity without disruption to commerce or traffic

Whether the need is to address lead-contaminated water systems or rehabilitate structurally compromised pipelines, PipeArmor® Manufactured-in-Place Pipe™ delivers the means to return critical drinking water systems or larger sewer force mains to design requirements efficiently and at a lower total overall cost. Manhole-to-manhole lining technology minimizes the detrimental impact typical construction causes local business and assures street traffic can keep flowing. Our articulated robots can rehabilitate the most challenging pipe configurations – under roadways, rail lines, canals, over mountains or in treatment plants. Once installed, PipeArmor® liners restore system integrity and deliver a long, maintenance-free useful service life.

The advantages of PipeArmor® for Water /Wastewater

LINER AND INSTALLATION TECHNOLOGY:

  • Service 8-inch to >174-inch diameters
  • Engineer from a barrier coating to structural liner; 0.020 inch to 1.5 inch construction in a single pass
  • Rehabilitates Carbon Steel, Ductile Iron, Cast Iron, PCCP, RCP, CFRP, FRP and more
  • Installs over many existing linings and coatings
  • Durability and high modulus flexural strength
  • ANSI/NSF 61, ASTM D3681 formulations / AWWA M 28 Class III and Class IV1
  • Manhole entry and remote managed installation minimizes cutouts along busy thoroughfares
  • No size-on-size constraints; installs through 90° bends
  • Laterals do not require remote reinstatement / valve removal may not be necessary
  • Service restoration can be done immediately after inspection

LIFECYCLE BENEFITS:

  • Stop water loss or effluent contaminations
  • Improve hydraulics and flow efficiency; impacts less than 5% of cross section
  • Stops degradation of host pipe; arrests corrosion and erosion
  • Seals cracks or perforations; monolithic construction negates leaking (lead) pipe wall or joints
  • Temperature, chemical, and abrasion resistant
  • No residual catalyst; maintenance-free engineering
  • Can improve water quality and taste

PipeArmor® in all its forms delivers a solution that solves the most challenging rehabilitation needs - delivering new options that relieve a significant stress on public capital budgets needed for aging pipeline replacement in the process. With PipeArmor® owners can significantly extend the service life of more linear feet of pipeline within the same budget, or apply the savings to reduce size of capital spend. The end result: Engineers, city budget directors and rate payers all have their needs met.

Applications of PipeArmor®

  • Water transmission lines
  • Distribution lines
  • Sewer Force Main (=>36")
  • Dams / Reservoirs
  • Water plants
