CME Pipe Lining recognizes the importance of fast, clean and effective sewer and process pipe repairs in industrial complexes, and we have perfected the process for our customers in Cincinnati and the Tri State area. Cure-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining is the preferred method of industrial sewer and process pipe repair and maintenance because it is far more efficient and cost-efficient than traditional dig-and-replace methods.
Advantages of Industrial Sewer and Process Pipe Lining
Industrial buildings have unique sewer and process pipe repair needs: more often than not, these pipes lie beneath concrete production floors that house multiple pieces of functioning production equipment with long runs and/or around-the-clock operations. CME Sewer Repair recognizes pipe-lining as the preferred industrial-pipe repair method because it minimizes or even eliminates production downtime. Cincinnati and the Tri State area is home to many older facilities with aging pipes. CME Pipe Lining has the capacity to line pipes with diameters ranging from three inches all the way up to 54 inches, meaning that larger-than-usual industrial pipes are no issue for our pipe-lining services.
How To Tell If Your Facility’s Sewer or Process Pipes are Failing
If your industrial facility is experiencing sewer odors, clanging pipes, or frequent clogs that lead to backups in the system, it’s time to bring in an expert, and CME Pipe Lining is experienced in providing the solution you need. Our first course of action is to accurately diagnose the problem with our sewer inspection tools, which include a camera with video recording capabilities. An accurate diagnosis of the cause of the symptoms of failing pipes ensures that our work will be comprehensive and will completely remedy the problem to produce long-lasting, high-quality results.
This inspection is conducted from the inside of the pipe. The camera is generally inserted through a pre-existing nearby cleanout or other access point. It is then sent through the sewer line on a flexible cable and during this time our technicians take note of any damage found in the pipes; including cracks, leaks, misaligned pipeline joints, corrosion, or other issues that need to be addressed in order to maintain the integrity and proper function of the pipe and therefore of the facility.
The Cure-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Lining for Industrial Sewer and Process Pipe Repair
The CIPP lining process, be it for a sewer or a process pipe, involves inserting a flexible, inflatable liner saturated with an epoxy-resin directly into the failing pipe. The liner is then inflated using air or water forcing the resin-saturated liner-material forces against the inside of the pipe, molding itself to it. The epoxy-resin then cures for several hours under heat and pressure. Once the liner is fully cured, it creates a joint- and seam-free pipe molded to the inside of the failing pipe. This process offers a long-term solution to issues such as leaks, cracks, holes and/or erosion affecting the performance of the pipe. As a result of these qualities, the epoxy-based liners we install have a minimum life expectancy of 50 years, offering industrial facilities added security as they continue their business.
How High-Temperature Process-Pipe Lining Works
The lining materials for high-temperature process pipes are different than the standard materials used for sewer pipe repairs. High-temperature process pipes require materials than can withstand the flow of high-temperature water running through them. To achieve this, our technicians use a custom high-temperature, low pH-range vinyl-ester composite resin that can handle up to 285 degrees F and a pH-range of 13 to 2. This is a specialized solution that is reserved for repairing process-pipes in industrial facilities, that specifically manufacture products that require intense heat during their processing.
