Pipeline Rehabilitation | Advanced Pipeline Services

By: Advanced Pipeline Services  06-Dec-2011

CIPP systems create a close-fit `pipe-within-a-pipe’ which has quantifiable structural strength and can be designed to suit various loading conditions. As well as minimising bore reduction, an inherent advantage of cured-in-place liners is their ability to conform to almost any shape of pipe, making them suitable for relining non-circular cross-sections.

In the systems offered by APS, the common feature is the use of a fabric tube impregnated with polyester, vinylester or epoxy resin. The tube is inserted into the existing pipeline and inflated against the pipe wall. It is then cured by re-circulating hot water or steam, or by applying ultra-violet light.

The two systems offered by APS have different characteristics which make them particularly suitable for different uses. Further information on all these products offered by APS is contained in the products section of this website.

Investigation and Source Detection | Advanced Pipeline Services

Once the obvious sources have been identified, our engineers will normally carry out a closed-circuit-television inspection of the pipe interior which will reveal any leak points underground. The first issues to be resolved when evaluating pipeline repair are determining what sort of leaks there are – either into our out of the pipe – and where they are in the system.

Maintenance and Repair | Advanced Pipeline Services

Most owners and operators of major pipeline systems understand that regular repairs and maintenance are necessary if their assets are to operate for long periods at the highest level of reliability. Advanced Pipeline Systems has the necessary skills and resources to ensure that our experienced professional teams can monitor your system on a regular basis.

Lateral Junction Repair | Advanced Pipeline Services

Although the various pipe rehabilitation systems used by APS will provide a total repair to the main pipe, it is often necessary to also repair the link between the main line and the lateral pipe connecting to individual properties. The extent of lateral repair and cleaning can usually be determined during the CCTV inspection of the main pipe before rehabilitation work starts.

Spot Repairs | Advanced Pipeline Services

Our standard repair process can just as easily be applied to short lengths of major damage, so long as we can get clear access to damage points through nearby manholes. Damage is often caused by such things as earthquake, unexpected application of heavy weights in local areas and even intrusion of contractor’s machinery. Not all of our repair services concentrate on long lengths of damaged pipe.

Manhole Rehabilitation | Advanced Pipeline Services

The nature of sewage pipelines is that they often create a chemically-active atmosphere which will contribute to the deterioration of not only the pipe, but also to the manholes which give access to the pipes. The process will normally involve cleaning the inside of the manhole, repairing any damage and leaks and re-sealing the interior with a protective mortar covering.
