Portable CIPP Lining for Tough Locations

Posted: Friday 26th June 2009

Trenchless engineering contractor, Perco, has added portable UV-curing to its EcoCIPP cured-in-place-pipe lining fleet. The compact system enables relining of sewers and culverted watercourses in difficult terrain and access conditions.

Transportable in small vans, Perco’s portable ‘Bluetec’ UV rigs can also be easily moved on tracked, all-terrain vehicles and handling equipment. This offers an operating solution for narrow access situations and rough ground, that have previously either entailed extra cost to create access, or prevented relining altogether. As a result, culverts under railways, roads, rivers and canals are among the applications set to benefit.

Bluetec uses the same Brandenburger technology as Perco’s established EcoCIPP lining system. Installed GRP liners therefore possess the same outstanding characteristics of flexural strength, elasticity and water tightness. Environmentally the absence of hot water curing, noise and styrene pollution issues also makes it a low-impact option.

While UV-curing is already a fast and controllable method, reducing time on site, the Bluetec portable system has enhanced light sources and control, with online monitoring and documentation of the full curing process.

Using the portable equipment, Perco engineers can reline lengths of up to 250m per run. The system handles internal diameters of 250mm to 1200mm, while circular, egg-shaped and special profiles may be relined.
