Where drains have multiple repair requirements Duke Utility Solutions provide a cured in place pipe work (CIPP) repair, also known as drain lining. Drain lining is where a resin impregnated carrier sleeve is installed into the defective pipe work. The reline sleeve can be inflated using air or water until it is calibrated to the interior of the pipe work. The resin undergoes a process called thermo reaction and undergoes a controlled cure to form a new pipe within the defective pipe. There are numerous installation and curing techniques however Duke Utility Solutions analyse the repair and client requirements to establish a suitable calculated CIPP installation that will be fully fit for purpose and be environmentally appropriate. Duke Utility Solutions also carry out localised CIPP patch relines. Where a drain only has localised issues it is not necessary to reline the whole of the drain. This saves costs and the need to reline the parts of the drains that are structurally acceptable. These sections can be repaired in 1 meter sections and once installed have a fifty year manufacturers guarantee.
Relining is the fastest and most cost-effective way to repair a damaged drain or sewer.
Drain relining can be carried out on pipes from as small as 100mm diameter right up to 1.5-metre culverts and, depending on access and logistical considerations, in single lengths or in aseries of shorter, overlapping liners. Patch liners can be installed in pipes as small as 60mm diameter up to 1.2-metres, which is the size of the largest packer currently available. Equipped with the latest technology and equipment and staffed by an unrivalled team of experts, our Sewer Renovation Division operates throughout the UK, so you have access to our specialist drain relining service wherever you are in the country.
