In the past, rehabilitation of pipes was mostly reserved for sewerage and wastewater systems. Now that the technology has proved itself, municipalities and Water Boards are starting to embrace the lining of pipes for potable water supply systems as well. However, high pressure pipes require a solution that’s a bit different from regular pipe lining. Due to the high pressure of the water traveling through the pipes, there is a chance that it will get between the liner and the pipe.
Trelleborg Pipe Seals has developed two new seals that are lead-free and approved by the NSF for potable water pipes:
I-Lock-P™ Mechanical Seal
L-Lock-P™ Liner End Seal
Austin Milburn, Lead Installer for Trutest Seals, says:
“In the past, we’ve struggled to get the install tool wedged between the jacking pads of expansion bands, but Trelleborg’s design will make this process much easier.
Also, the install tool will be much easier to carry through the pipe. I really like that you can hold it with one hand and it can be disconnected from the pump and hose.”
