Water transmission pipelines or large-diameter pressure pipes are strengthened using the Fibrwrap® system either internally or externally. Decades of continuous service of large-diameter buried pressure pipelines have led to deterioration that threatens the structural integrity of these lines.
Pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipelines (PCCP), which depend heavily on pre-stressing wires for strength and long term durability, are in a state of distress due to corrosion and other factors. Similarly, reinforced concrete pressure pipes, steel and ductile iron pipelines are also in need of structural renewal for extended service life.
The Tyfo® Fibrwrap® system application is a trenchless technology (for internal applications) that provides a full structural repair to these distressed pipe sections. This patented (US patent # 5,931,198) process has been successfully utilized worldwide for over a decade to rehabilitate many miles of pipelines ranging in diameter from 36 inches to 201 inches.
The Tyfo® Fibrwrap® system provides an NSF listing for usage in potable water environments.
