Sewer and rainwater pipes can get damaged for a number of different reasons that can then make them become unfit for purpose and in some cases end up causing damage to the environment. Replacing the damaged pipe could involve digging trenches which can come with a lot of inconveniences and also expense. McBreen Environmental save you that hassle by simply relining the pipe without having to break ground.
The most efficient and well-known way of pipe relining is UV Lining. McBreen Environmental have successfully used UV Pipe Lining to repair pipes and drains for many industrial clients over the years and have a highly qualified team of technicians dedicated solely to UV lining.
A cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) is a trenchless rehabilitation method we use to repair existing pipelines. CIPP is a jointless, seamless, pipe-within-a-pipe with the capability to rehabilitate pipes ranging in diameter from 0.1 to 2.8 meters (4–110 inches). As one of the most widely used rehabilitation methods, CIPP has application in water, sewer, gas, and chemical pipelines. This method has led to amazing, cost-effective results with minimum disruption or excavations needed.
UV Pipe Relining is the process in which a pipe liner is installed within an existing damaged pipe with a GRP (glass reinforced plastic) type of material, which when cured, is actually stronger than original pipe it lines. The new pipe material is fed into the existing pipe from one opening and when cured, fits tight to the wall of the original pipe, creating a tough, strong and durable lining, dramatically increasing the life span of the pipe. Because we cut the lining to fit the pipe diameter prior to installation, the loss of cross section is as low as 5% in some cases. Therefore we don’t compromise the integrity of the original flow capacity.
