Standard Practice for Rehabilitation of Existing Pipelines and Conduits by the Pulled in Place Installation of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) Cured-in-Place Thermosetting Resin Pipe (CIPP)
|Publication Date:||1 September 2011|
This practice covers the procedures for the reconstruction of pipelines and conduits (4 to 60 in. (100 to 1500 mm) diameter) by the pulled-in place installation of a resin-impregnated, flexible fabric tube into an existing conduit followed by inflation with compressed air (see Fig. 1). The resin/fabric tube can be cured by either the flow through the fabric tube of mixed air and steam or hot water or by use of ultraviolet light. When cured, the finished cured-in-place pipe will be continuous and tight fitting. This reconstruction process can be used in a variety of gravity flow applications such as sanitary sewers, storm sewers, process piping, electrical conduits, ventilation systems, and pressure applications.
