The smallest BRAWOLINER® to date. For in-house rehabilitation In the past, defective flush-mounted small diameter pipes had to be repaired in open cut replacement. BRAWOLINER® is proud to announce a special liner for the rehabilitation of DN 50 sanitary pipes; for example from the shower to the wash basin, drain pipelines in the kitchen or industrial areas can now be rehabilitated easily with BRAWOLINER® DN 50. The seamless liner has the same product characteristics as the proven BRAWOLINER. It can be installed with a minimum pressure and up to 90 ° bends.

UV LINING AIDES MAJOR POWER STATION RENOVATION WORKS

AES Kilroot Power Station (KPS), near Carrickfergus, some 12 miles northeast of Belfast, is an oil and coal burning power station that produces around one third of Northern Ireland’s electricity. Being such an important power generator for the area, however, the current facility must be kept at its best efficiency and operational performance at all times. As part of the ongoing maintenance work to ensure this performance is achieved, a CCTV survey of the existing 420 mm diameter, steel, sea water pipelines which have been in use for over 30 years was undertaken. The survey showed signs of severe encrustation and corrosion, with, in places, up to 30% of the pipe cross section being obstructed. Corrosion had also removed a length of approximately 7.0 m in the invert of one pipe and there were also numerous small holes throughout the length of the pipes which allowed the ingress of water in the form of jets and seepage.

MULTI-DIAMETER AND EXTRA STRENGTH LINERS FOR THE UK RENOVATION MARKET

The rehabilitation of lateral connection pipes and service drains with in-built changes in diameter sometimes presents a major challenge for many existing rehabilitation technologies. Given the occurrence of such pipe structures, there has for some time been a need for a liner system that can accommodate such diameter fluctuations during the installation process without the need to excavate to access the diameter change location or design a liner with the diameter change in the ‘right position’ before installation. This is particularly the case where, in one single pipe length, large increases in diameter exist, for example from DN 100 to DN 150. The new BRAWOLINER® 3D liner system was developed especially
