The Tyfo® fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) system are designed to increase the structural performance of existing PCCP, RC and steel pipes. Fibrwrap Construction, an Aegion company, is the exclusive installer of the Tyfo® FRP pipeline repair system for pipelines.
When Does FRP Pipeline Repair Become Necessary?
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 the loss of these wires from 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.
FRP pipeline repair on water transmission lines or other large-diameter pressure pipes can be performed by installing the Tyfo® system, either internally or externally.
What Is the Tyfo® System?
The Tyfo® system is a trenchless FRP pipeline repair technology that provides a fully structural repair to these distressed pipe sections. It is the only FRP pipeline repair system that has an ICC evaluation.
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 to 201 inches. The Tyfo® system provides an NSF listing for usage in potable water environments.
