Rehabilitating Aging Plant Pipelines with Minimal Operational Downtime, 20PEERS Conference

America’s aging infrastructure continues to be a hot topic for debate.  The consensus is that there is a need for replacement and rehabilitation, but the question is how; all while not disrupting socio-economic activity and reducing costs. As this nation continues to grow, the ability becomes more challenging with the growing populations and development over and adjacent to older infrastructure.   

The industrial market, including manufacturers and factories, faces similar challenges with aging infrastructure and the ability to address the aging components that are crucial aspects to the operation without having a costly and disruptive project.  Minimizing downtime and keeping operations moving forward is paramount.   

This was the case for the many plants with pressurized pipelines of all sizes that are fully deteriorated and required rehabilitation. Holes and voids may become visible, showing its deteriorated state and putting the plant's crucial operations at severe risk.   

One method is a trenchless rehabilitation technique using fiber-reinforced, polyurethane-coated cured-in-place pipe with epoxy resin. The system can pass pressure testing and put the plant back in operation with minimizing expensive downtime, and structurally restoring their pipelines with an AWWA Class IV design that was able to handle the operating pressures.
