FLEX Liner Method
The FLEX Liner Method is a method for inserting new PE pipe inside of gas pipes which have been buried for a long period of time aged pipes.
- PE Pipe Insertion Process
After being heated by a pipe warmer, the PE pipe is pulled through the pipe using a winch. During this process, a deformer is used to give the tube a "U" shape.
- PE Pipe Inflation Proces
Steam is used for heating and pressurization of the PE pipe to inflate it to its original shape. Cooling air is then blown through it.
