Trenchless pipe lining is a method of restoring damaged or old pipes without digging or excavation. It is a cost-effective, eco-friendly, and efficient solution for sewer line repair and drain lining. In this blog, we will explain the materials and equipment used for the trenchless pipe repair process.
The main material used for trenchless drain lining is a resin-based composite that forms a new pipe inside the old one. The resin is a mixture of chemicals that hardens when exposed to heat or light. The resin can be applied to different types of liners, such as:
- Felt liners: These are flexible tubes made of polyester or fiberglass that are impregnated with resin and inserted into the pipe. They are then inflated and cured to form a new pipe.
- Fiberglass liners: These are rigid tubes made of fiberglass that are coated with resin and inserted into the pipe. They are then expanded and cured to form a new pipe.
- Spiral wound liners: These are strips of plastic or metal that are wound into a pipe shape and inserted into the pipe. They are then locked and sealed with resin to form a new pipe.
The equipment used for trenchless pipe lining varies depending on the method and the pipe size. Some of the common equipment are:
- Camera: This is a device that is attached to a cable and inserted into the pipe to inspect the condition and measure the diameter of the pipe.
- Bladder: This is a device that is inserted into the pipe along with the liner to inflate and press the liner against the pipe wall.
- Curing unit: This is a device that is connected to the pipe and provides heat or light to cure the resin and harden the liner.
- Cutting tool: This is a device that is inserted into the pipe to cut off any excess liner or reopen any connections or branches during the sewer line repair process.
