CIPP Technology for Water Pipe Rehabilitation

In the past decade the need to specifically address aging and deteriorating water infrastructure has become more apparent*.  This webinar focuses on next generation cured-in-place pipe technology available today for water distribution and transmission main rehabilitation. 

Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) technology has been employed in gravity sewer pipe rehabilitation for over 40 years.  By 2007, CIPP was recognized as the most used rehab technology with estimates of over 10 million lineal feet of lining being performed in the USA per year and growing. The natural evolution of CIPP was to develop systems to perform as well in pressure pipe as it had been in gravity pipe.  The challenges include increased control during installation, non-shrink resins, long-term composite strength addressing both internal and external loads and the capability to meet stringent regulations for contact with potable water.

This webinar provides details on key standards and quality controls necessary for successful application of CIPP technology in water pipe.  Information including resin selection, liner materials, equipment meeting the first CIPP wet-out standard ASTM F2994, installation practices, service connections and testing will be presented.  Case histories on both small diameter distribution mains with robotic service reconnection and large diameter transmission lines provide valuable insight into the evolution of CIPP that will allow engineers to create a logical and cost-efficient strategy for the complete structural repair and preventative maintenance of aging and deteriorated water infrastructure. 

* According to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), as released in its 2013 Infrastructure Report Card, “…at the dawn of the 21st century, much of our drinking water infrastructure is nearing the end of its useful life.” There are an estimated 240,000 water main breaks per year (650+ per day) in the United States. Assuming every pipe would need to be replaced, the cost over the coming decades could reach more than $1 trillion, according to the American Water Works Association (AWWA).

Condition Assessment for Watermains

ConditionCondition assessment of critical infrastructure is an essential tool for the management of existing buried assets. To effectively maintain potable water systems, a proactive planning approach to existing and future needs is a much more responsible and cost effective course than reactively responding to costly emergency situations. The frequency of inspection and type of data collected can ensure that buried assets are more likely to achieve their desired life cycle when properly maintained.

This webinar will focus on the following topics:

  • Consequence of failure due to operational and environmental conditions
  • External and internal structural deterioration evaluation tools and technologies
  • Using information to prioritize inspection, rehabilitation and replacement programs

Reducing Corrosion, Costs and Extending the Life Cycle of a Pipe

FlowtiteTrenchless is the future of pipe installation and repair, and FRP is the new generation of material used to replace pipes put in the ground when baby boomers were in diapers.

Find out why more engineers are specifying FRP and how its reducing corrosion, costs and has a longer life cycle.

We'll show you recent case studies, and you'll learn how others have used FRP in trenchless applications. See what makes FLOWTITE unique, and get your questions answered in real time during our live Q&A.

Cured-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP)

Cured-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP) is a tried and true method for rehabilitating potable water, wastewater and gas pipelines. With no or limited excavation, engineered liners are inserted into host pipes creating a new pipe within an existing pipe. The liners are usually made from a polyester felt fabric and impregnated with polymer resin which is cured to fit tightly to the host pipe. Robotics are commonly used to clear laterals.

This webinar will focus on the following CIPP topics:

  • CIPP technologies
  • Industry standards
  • Cost value benefits

Engineering Effective I&I Reduction: Stopping Leakage Using CIPP & Grouting

AvantiThe single biggest sewer challenge facing engineers and municipalities is I&I. Current practices are installed in ways that promote structural repair and do not effectively reduce infiltration or exfiltration. The two most pervasive methods for I&I reduction projects are grouting and lining. The expert panel will explore where, when and how to employ these technologies to effectively remove leakage for the long term.

ENGINEER'S DECISION MATRIX:

Assess when to grout and when to line
Cost-based decisions, life-cycle costs
When to use both CIPP and chemical grout

GAIN NEW INSIGHT AND TAKEAWAYS:

How to sustain the collection system
Grouting and Lining are complementary technologies
Techniques to seal annulus space between host pipe and liner
How to grout/how to line to achieve long lasting solutions

This Live Learning Event is hosted by James Rush, Editor of Trenchless Technology magazine and promises to be interactive and informative...a must attend for the trenchless community.

NASTT’s Carbon Calculator

In order to promote trenchless technology as a green alternative, NASTT collaborated with a consortium of North American gas and electric utilities to develop a Carbon Calculator. This calibrated comparison tool allows users to input real project data and compare outcomes between traditional open cut construction and trenchless applications. NASTT's Carbon Calculator is a complementary benefit for all NASTT members.

During this webinar you will learn:

  • The basic operations of NASTT's Carbon Calculator
  • How to input project details into the Calculator
  • How to get access to NASTT's Carbon Calculator after the webinar

I & I Mitigation: Rehabilitation of Sewer Laterals and Sealing Their Connection to the Main

LMK Technologies, located in Ottawa, Illinois is recognized by municipalities and consulting engineers as a high quality innovator of trenchless renewal systems for sewer laterals, mainlines and manholes.  LMK has an extensive world-wide patent library relating to trenchless pipe renewal technologies.

Cities that are trying to reduce costs associated with excessive Infiltration/Inflow (I&I) are finding that rehabilitating manholes and city owned sewer pipes alone does not always produce the results they desire because the failing laterals remain an unmitigated source of clear water inflow. The focus of this webinar is on renewing lateral services using CIPP technology with special emphasis on restoring the connection of the lateral to the mainline sewer in accordance with the applicable ASTM standard (F2561).

Join Rick Gage, Vice president of Business Development, who will walk attendees through the history of lateral lining and its current place in today’s industry.  We will also discuss the following topics in regards to ASTM F2561:

  • Accessing the Lateral through an Outside Cleanout
  • Materials Used in Main-to-Lateral CIPP
  • Sealing the Annular Space between the Main and Host Pipe
  • Inserting, Inflating and Inverting the Liner
  • Curing and Final Inspection

Don't miss out on this educational opportunity for renewing and sealing the sewer system. Watch this Trenchless Technology webinar from the comfort of your own office. We hope to see you online this Wednesday!

Space is limited so register today!
