Trenchless Pipeline Rehabilitation Technology is the set of method used to replace, repair, or rehabilitate the existing buried pipeline without excavation from above ground. Below are different types of solutions ENERCON offers depending on the nature of medium and substrate condition. There are several benefits associated with Trenchless Pipeline Rehabilitation Technology, such as.
Trenchless technology is economical as there are no open-cut excavation and refilling involved in the process.
If a repair is needed in a heavy trafficked street or road, conventional methods will pose a significant threat to local businesses and inconvenience in the traffic. However, using trenchless technology, also known as no-dig technology, no disruptions are caused to the surrounding neighborhoods, traffic, and local business.
Trenchless technology can accurately detect the damage area along with identifying what caused the damage. Using specialized tools such as particular type of camera inserted into the pipeline helps in detecting the exact damage location. Operators are informed of the exact damaged part, along with its reason, and they can directly start with what needs to be done.
Trenchless technology is far less time-consuming. One doesn’t have to carry out extensive surveys to inspect and identify the problem. Problem identification and its rectification can be done speedily and accurately with the help of cameras and robots.
Trenchless technology does not use plastic or metal. As an alternative, it utilizes Perma-liner and epoxy resin, which gives better performance and lasts longer for upto 50 years or more.
Safety & Environment Friendly:
Most important benefit of trenchless technology is ensuring safety of human lives and the infrastructure. It can avoid potential unknown factors such as unprotected electricity wires, hazardous chemicals, landslides, etc. Fewer disruptions are caused to underground soil, agricultural land, atmospheric air, and other wildlife habitats, which is benefiting environment.
ENERCON provides several NSF 61 approved liners for potable water, the choice of solution is fully dependent on the type of pipe, the operational pressure and the layout of the pipe, sometimes combinations of multiple solutions are used on the same project.
Tight Fit Lining System is a new and innovative technology developed by Applied pipeline services engineers with ENERCON as partner. TF-lining is a non-invasive solution for leaking underground water pipes with inside diameters from 4″ to 76″. This liner forms a continuous barrier between existing pipe and drinking water. The liner is pulled in place and can hold pressures up to 100 Bars. The liner can be installed in steel, copper, plastic, concrete, HDPE, and lead pipes. TF- liner often requires two small access pits only, saving sidewalks, and floors from demolition and civil works. The speedy and innovative TF liner process allows for many installations in a day and immediate return to service. Save 30-60% by ditching the traditional dig-&-replace method and upgrading to TF liner.
CIPP PATCH LINER:
ENERCON provides several WRC approved patches for the repair of Water, Sewage & Drainpipes. The choice of solution is fully dependent on the type of pipe, layout and sometimes combinations of multiple solutions are used on the same project depending on the situation.
CIPP (Cured in Place Pipe Lining) System is a new and innovative technology developed by Applied pipeline services engineers with ENERCON as Partner. CIPP-lining is a non-invasive solution for leaking underground water, sewage & drainpipes with inside diameters ranging from 2″ to 76″. CIPP forms a continuous barrier between existing pipe and the medium. The liner is pulled in place and cured in place, The liner can be installed in steel, copper, plastic, concrete, HDPE, and lead pipes. The patch- liner often requires two small access pit only, saving sidewalks and floors from demolition or civil works.
LIQUID EPOXY LINING:
Liquid epoxy Lining System is a non-invasive solution for leaking underground FIRE Suppression pipes with inside diameters ranging from 1⁄2″ to 4″.
SIPP Lining System is a new technology developed by Applied pipeline services engineers with ENERCON as Partner with the support of international manufacturers in the USA. SIPP is a non-invasive solution for leaking underground FIRE Suppression pipes with inside diameters ranging from 2″ to 18″.
OIL & GAS PIPES:
ENERCON provides several WRC approved liners for Oil & Gas pipes, the choice of solution is fully dependent on the type of pipe, medium, operational pressure, and the layout of the pipe. Please contact ENERCON representative for further information.
Closed Circuit Television Video (CCTV) has become one of the most widely used pipeline inspection methods nowadays. The combination of advanced cameras with robotics presents outstanding applications in the field of pipeline inspection. Since CCTV has mainstreamed, examining sewers, drains, and pipelines has become a much more comfortable, quicker, cost-effective, and infrastructure preserving task. Meanwhile, CCTV video cameras can help you find out the exact location of the sewer damage along with the following pipeline problems:
The remotely controlled CCTV cameras are inserted in the pipeline whose inspection is needed. Meanwhile, CCTV cameras are best source of inspection for the pipes with of 1.5inches to 72 inches.
Pipe Leak Detection:
ENERCON has a great arsenal of trenchless pipe leak detection technology in its toolbox that guarantees the location of the leak without any interruption of normal operations.
