UV Relining

UV pipe relining offers a modern twist on traditional cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) relining. The key difference lies in the curing process: instead of relying on hot water, steam, or ambient conditions, UV pipe relining utilises UV light to cure the resin. This innovative method provides more flexibility during installation, as there’s no rush to complete the process before the resin sets.

Benefits of Regular Pressure Testing

One of the major headaches in traditional relining methods is the risk of the epoxy resin curing prematurely, leading to costly and labour-intensive fixes. UV pipe relining significantly mitigates this risk, sparing installers from potential disasters.

Here are some notable benefits of Ultra-Violet pipe relining:

  • Speedy Installation: UV curing accelerates the curing process, allowing for faster installation compared to traditional UV relining methods.
  • Reduced Downtime: With quicker curing times, there’s less disruption to your sewer or stormwater system, minimising downtime.
  • Environmental Friendliness: UV relining eliminates the discharge of toxic resin into the environment, unlike ambient, hot water, or steam curing methods.
  • Lower Installation Risk: The UV curing process reduces the likelihood of installation failures, providing added assurance to both installers and clients.

When Do We Need UV Pipe Relining?

UV pipe relining shines in several scenarios where traditional methods might fall short.

Time Sensitivity

When time is of the essence, UV pipe relining is a game-changer. Traditional methods can take hours to cure, but UV liners can be ready in minutes. For instance, a 30-meter UV liner of 150mm diameter can cure in about 30 minutes, compared to 3 to 4 hours with hot water curing and over 6 hours with ambient techniques.

Weight Constraints

If your pipes are suspended or weight is a concern, UV relining offers a lightweight solution. Traditional methods relying on hot water curing can impose significant weight on the system, risking collapse and property damage. UV-cured liners, on the other hand, only require light for curing, eliminating the risk of structural issues due to excessive weight.

Large Diameter Pipelines

Dealing with larger-diameter pipelines? UV pipe relining simplifies the process by requiring minimal equipment compared to traditional methods. This not only saves time but also reduces space restrictions and minimises disruptions to your home or workplace infrastructure.

Advantages of UV Drain Relining

Durability

UV drain relining boasts a Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) liner known for its exceptional durability, with a potential lifespan of up to 70 years. This longevity surpasses other solutions, making it a reliable choice. Plus, it’s ten times stronger than conventional CIPP lining, ensuring robust performance.

No Deep Excavations

Say goodbye to extensive digging and pipe replacements. UV relining creates a sturdy pipe within the existing one, eliminating the need for disruptive excavations. It’s a hassle-free solution that saves time and preserves your property.

Environmentally Friendly

Concerned about environmental impact? UV lining is the answer. It’s an eco-friendly option that avoids the risk of pollution. With no disposal of styrene-contaminated water, it’s safe for use in both rural and urban areas, offering peace of mind.

Versatile Equipment

The portable nature of UV lining equipment means it can tackle even the trickiest locations with ease. Whether it’s tight spaces or awkward corners, the equipment’s manoeuvrability ensures efficient and effective relining wherever it’s needed.

Minimal Pipe Diameter Reduction

Unlike some methods that may lead to a reduction in pipe diameter, UV relining minimises this issue thanks to its reduced liner thickness. This means your pipes maintain their original dimensions, ensuring optimal flow and functionality.
