Trenchless technology refers to the “no-dig” approach of replacing or rehabilitating existing pipelines. This conventional approach to pipeline rehabilitation has opened a whole new world to the way that construction is completed. With continuously improving and new innovative ideas popping up in the realm of trenchless technology, it can easily become overwhelming and confusing. Here is what’s new in trenchless technology.
The process of slip lining is a construction method that is used to install a new pipeline within an existing host pipeline. While slip lining reduces the inside diameter of the pipeline, this can actually have a positive effect on the pressure and flow of the pipeline. Slip lining also reduces the inflow and infiltration, creating a smooth finish that leaves you with an efficient pipeline system.
Pipe bursting provides some additional services to make existing trenchless technology work. When it comes to slipping lining, pipe bursting can help gain access to narrow or collapsed sections of the line. It also can be used to increase the diameter of the pipe. While slip lining replaces the existing pipeline, it does so at cost of the interior diameter. A decrease in the interior diameter is not ideal for moving some materials through pipelines, which is where pipe bursting comes in handy. Pipe bursting allows for the same trenchless technologies to repair damaged pipelines and increase the pipelines overall diameter.
One of the biggest and most popular methods of trenchless technology is CIPP or cured in place pipelining. CIPP technology utilizes an epoxy resin to repair pipelines, instead of traditional metal material. This creates a new pipeline inside the pre-existing pipeline that is durable and made to last. Just like all the other trenchless technology methods, CIPP helps to diminish unnecessary damage and destruction while still resulting in a new and functioning pipeline.
With so many reliable trenchless technology repair methods, there is a pipe repair method that fits your needs. When it comes to trenchless pipelining, Advanced Pipe Repair are the experts.
