This paper introduces trenchless repair of pressure pipes with Carbon FRP to the whole world in International No-Dig 2019 37th International Conference and Exhibition in Florence, Italy
A new FRP solution- StifPipe® for the reconstruction of deteriorated pipes and culverts is described with a couple of case studies in this paper to the whole trenchless world in International No-Dig 2019 37th International Conference and Exhibition in Florence, Italy
This corrugated metal pipe culvert at the Arc Terminal in Mobile, Alabama was completed in 2013. Thanks to StifPipe Technology, this project was easily completed.
A lower cost 3D structure provides stiffness for pipe. The costly carbon fabric is used only as skin reinforcement to resist internal pressure. A higher-quality product can save significant time and money in many pipe renovation projects.
A very thin and flexible PipeMedic® laminate is used to demonstrate how a leaking 100-plus-year-old, high-pressure cast iron gas pipe can be repaired.
The first project utilizing custom-manufactured StifPipe™ sections was completed in December 2012 to repair a 24-inch corroded corrugated metal pipe (CMP) culvert in Mobile Alabama.
In an amazing application PipeMedic® laminate is used to close a 24-inch gap in a natural gas pipe; the pipe was later tested successfully to a pressure of 250 psi!. The field application of this system for PSE&G received the 2011 Trenchless Technology Project of the Year Award.
