Cured in Place Pipeline or CIPP (as it is commonly known), first originated in London England in 1977. Eric Wood, a local innovator, realized the need to reduce the cost, time and the site disturbances typically caused by sewer rehabilitation, and with this, CIPP was born.
CIPP rehabilitation can be executed and performed in a variety of ways depending on job specifics and site conditions, but the premise is generally the same. A cloth tube, typically made from a polyester felt, is impregnated with an epoxy or resin mixture.
The material is then inverted or pulled into the line segment where it is expanded against the pipe walls, where heat is then applied. Service connections are then robotically opened once the line segment has been properly cured. This process once complete essentially creates a new monolithic pipe inside the old broken or failing line segment, with a minimal reduction in capacity.
Here at APT we use this technology to save our customers time, money and the headaches caused by large scale dig and replace projects. CIPP repairs have been proven by the US Army Corp of Engineers to have a minimum service life of 50 years and are considered a permanent structural repair. CIPP repairs have also been proven to be one the most effective ways to reduce inflow and infiltration in your existing sewer systems. With this proven process, rehabilitation time is also drastically reduced by almost 95% depending on conditions.
