Cured in place pipes (CIPP) technology continuously evolves for the better, offering unique solutions and products for vendors and their customers. The following is a brief look at cured in place pipes, ahead-of-trend materials and tools for CIPP, and reasons to consider CIPP materials and tools.
Quick, Efficient Repair With Minimal to No Disruption
Open cut and trenchless rehab are two predominant methods of pipe repair, with the latter presenting the least disruption of service to end users. CIPP, a form of trenchless rehab, lets you renew and repair existing pipes while they remain in place.
CIPP effectively lines the walls of pipes with synthetic material that’s manufactured and cured in place to provide a precise fit as well as optimal, lasting reinforcement of compromised or eroded pipe structures.
What Makes CIPP Possible
Technical innovations in CIPP include equipment engineered specifically for the task. Pipe liners, or liner guns for example, use specially created composites of felt tubing and epoxy ambient or silicate-based cure resin.
The liner immediately repairs leaking joints, breaks and pipe defects through the inversion of liner into a cleanout connection to a sewer line, a lateral from a property line, or even fairly inaccessible lines requiring attention.
The liner includes the inverter machine, hoses, adapters, and a control unit. It folds up for storage or transport, and it’s lightweight enough not to stress your pickup’s payload capacity. Essential peripherals like digital scales, calibration rollers, and vacuum pumps help you conduct each CIPP job with timeliness and efficiency.
Why CIPP Makes Sense for the Present & the Future
CIPP eliminates the need to replace pipes, offering a viable solution when repair of hard-to-reach pipes is crucial. Hardware, machines and tools necessary for the process are lightweight yet extremely sturdy, transporting easily between jobs.
CIPP is inherently low maintenance, requiring fewer workers to complete a given lining job. Despite requiring fewer workers, efficiency remains high, helping to maximize labor dollars as you provide the highest standard of service to customers and address diverse pipe rehab scenarios with ease, confidence, and swiftness.
