FLEX Liner Method for Dealing with Aged PipesThe FLEX Liner Method is a method which is used for dealing with gas pipes which have been buried for a long period of time. The method is environmentally friendly and economical, cutting down on the amount of excavated soil and waste material produced as well as time required.
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.
FeaturesThis method renews aged pipes using PE pipes offering superior earthquake and corrosion resistance. Because PE is able to accommodate multiple bent pipes, this method perfoms well when used for gas pipes in a dense and complicated urban environment.
