Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Inversion
Enviro-flow's most common pipe lining process is the inversion method. This method inverts a resin impregnated liner through the existing pipe, then holds the liner under pressure to keep it expanded against the host pipe so it can cure. After curing, the resin hardens to the strength of a newly installed pipe. There are many applications where CIPP can be utilized, if you're not sure if CIPP will work for your project, don't hesitate to give us a call. Save your money and your time.
CIPP is rapidly growing in popularity due to its many benefits:
- Little or no excavation, little clean up work/time
- Cost Effective, can save the customer 50%+
- Fast and Efficient Installation
- Helps eliminate future water infiltration/root intrusion
- Environmentally Friendly
Sprayed-in-Place-Pipe (SIPP) is part of the trenchless rehabilitation family. Similar to CIPP, SIPP begins with televising the to-be-lined pipe and cleaning. What makes SIPP different is how the pipe is lined. After inspection and cleaning, a spray tool that is specially designed for SIPP is inserted in the damaged pipe and a heavy-duty coating is sprayed to line the pipe. The coating seals all cracks, root infestations, and breaks in the pipe. Oftentimes, SIPP can be completed in one day allowing for a quick return to service. SIPP has an NSF-61 approval, making the water that runs through the SIPP lined pipe safe to drink.
A Reinstatement Cutter is a robotic lining reinstatement cutter specially designed for opening branches of lined pipes; meaning if your lining project has a tee or a fitting, Enviro-Flow® can line through the pipe, and then cut an opening for the branch line. This results in a smooth professional branch line reinstatement finish. Cutters can also be used to remove unwanted obstacles in the pipe (i.e. concrete, hard scale, foreign objects protruding into the pipe). Enviro-flow® offers branch line reinstatements from 3” to 24”.
The NSF-61 approved Neofit®+Plus Potable Pipe Lining System is a non-invasive option for leaking water service pipes with inside diameters from ½” to 2”. The Neofit® liner forms a continuous barrier between existing pipe and drinking water – ideal for Lead Replacement Programs. The liner can be installed in steel, copper, plastic, and lead pipes, and in lengths up to 300 ft. The smooth bore and thin-wall liner provides the same or increased flow capacity. Neofit®+Plus often only requires a single small access pit, saving yards, sidewalks, floors, and more, from demolition. The speedy efficient Neofit®+Plus process allows for many installations a day and immediate return to service.
Flow-Liner Winch-in-Place-Pipe (WIPP) Lining
WIPP® is a flexible sliplining solution for the trenchless rehabilitation of pressure pipes. The system consists of a flexible Kevlar® reinforced liner and specially developed end fittings. Our WIPP liner is not bonded to the host pipe and is self-supporting. An annulus remains between liner and the host pipe. Developed by experienced engineers, the system is suitable for different media as well as various application needs and has already proven itself in numerous projects. Our WIPP system handles 6"-20" pipe diameters. See below for more information on WATER, OIL and GAS applications.
Televising and Inspection
How do you find problems in your sewer system without costly guesswork and excavation? Our specially designed color cameras pinpoint problems in pipes as small as 2” in diameter to as large as 96” in diameter. Trouble spots, such as cracked or broken tiles, offset joints, and blockages are quickly and precisely located without excavation. Service includes audio-video tape and computer-generated report of the inspection. Enviro-Flow’s television inspection service can also help you meet the EPA guidelines for your newly installed sewer lines.
