An emerging technology that was introduced about 20 years ago and has been used quite extensively is CIPP. Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) lining is a method of trenchless rehabilitation and restoration used in the repair of existing pipes. Similar to our Sprayed-in-Place-Pipe (SIPP) method, however, unlike SIPP which offers a limited warranty, CIPP is 100% warrantied and is recognized for lasting 50+ years when repaired correctly. CIPP lining uses a polymer impregnated felt tube that is inserted into the end of a pipe section and formed in place to the existing pipe using hot air or hot water.

HOW CURED-IN PLACE PIPE WORKS:

The process begins with the wet-out stage. During this stage, the textile liner is impregnated with the resin mixture, an epoxy base with a  predetermined gardner. The typical polymer systems are either epoxy or vinyl ester-based materials. 

Next, the liner is inserted into the pipe with air pressure. The resin will now be on the outside of the liner against the existing host pipe wall. 

After inversion, a calibration tube is inverted inside the liner which can be ambient, hot water, or steam cured. During this period, the curing agent activates the resin causing it to harden, creating a fitted smooth and corrosion-resistant new pipe wall. 

If necessary, a robotic cutting device will be inserted into the newly lined pipe to resonate with any branch line connections.  

As a trenchless technology, CIPP does not require excavation to rehabilitate a pipeline that is either leaking or structurally unsound. The liner is often installed through a manhole or other existing access points. CIPP has a smooth interior and no joints. CIPP can effectively reduce infiltration and leaks in pipeline systems without digging or causing other environmental stressors.
