Manual vs. Electric Calibration Roller Systems

Posted by Jordan Fues on Jul 8, 2022 5:41:55 PM

A calibration roller system is used to evenly distribute resin in the liners used in CIPP repairs. It works by feeding the liner onto a roller while the resin simultaneously fills the liner. This process is known as the “wet-out” stage of CIPP rehabilitation. While the new manual and electric rollers from PRT both fulfill this purpose, they operate in slightly different ways.

Maintenance Is King: How To Keep Your Pipe Rehab Gear at Peak Performance

Posted by Jordan Fues on Feb 11, 2022 12:08:36 PM

The power of routine maintenance cannot be overstated, especially when it comes to sewer rehab and repair equipment. These tools experience serious wear and tear, and sewer lines are often dirty and unpredictable. While this technology is built to withstand rough environments, it isn’t infallible; just a few minutes of cleaning and care per day can help protect your equipment down the road. Looking after your gear helps to extend its service life, avoids downtime from unexpected damage, and can lower overall cost of ownership.

Curing During Active Infiltration: Which Cure Works Best?

Posted by Jordan Fues on Nov 3, 2021 3:47:41 PM

Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) installation is made more difficult by active infiltration, which occurs when groundwater seeps through cracks, joints or manholes into sewer pipes. New CIPPs should be tight-fitting and jointless to seal off any possible points of entry for infiltration. Unfortunately, CIPP does not eliminate infiltration from entering the existing host pipe. Infiltration is dangerous to the installation process because too much flow can wash the resin off of the new liner and/or prevent the liner from installing correctly. However, the type of cure used for installation can make a difference in the effects of infiltration.

What CIPP Testers Do

Posted by Allison Symonds on Aug 20, 2021 5:55:08 PM

When a pipe rehab crew installs a CIPP liner, they typically do the job in just a few hours, and then move on to the next project. But that’s not the end of the story. CIPP is designed to last for decades, and the wastewater systems that use it need to be confident in its efficacy. In most cases, installers are required to submit a sample of every liner installed for third-party testing. Only once testing is complete and the results are approved and reported is the job really “done.”
