Getting to know the CIPP Materials and Processes

Davie Florida

Pipeline Renewal Technologies (PRT), a pioneering distributor of pipeline repair tech, published a white paper explaining the process of cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) liners. The CIPP process entails the repair of damaged pipes using a liner that acts as a new pipe within the pipe. The CIPP sewer process has continued to develop and see remarkable improvements in the last three decades. Recent times have seen lots of options emerge like resin, liner material, and cure methods. Each of these methods has their pros in terms of cost efficiency, safety, ease-of-installation, and so on. The growth of the CIPP process as a preferred pipeline repair method has left industry experts amazed.

"CIPP is one of the most efficient and popular trenchless repair methods in existence. It is effective and improves liner performance. The truth is, CIPP comes with different options and combos. This allows users to choose the options that meet their needs. The options CIPP gives is second to none. Mind you, CIPP can be quite overwhelming for new users, but this white paper gives a detailed explanation of the process, variables, and other combinations," says Todd Morence, Midwest Territory, Account Manager for Pipeline Renewal Technologies.

The CIPP process can be employed to repair pipes ranging from 0.1 to 2.8 meters (2-110 inches) in length. The process has become an efficient repair method for pipe around the world. By the end of the repair process, any gaps or structural damage in the process piping are covered by the CIPP, thus removing leaks and other property issues. Cured-in-place pipe has a high resistance to chemicals, oil, and temperature changes. It offers an adequate solution for various issues.
