Internal pipe coating of wastewater pipes
A local German Municipality was undertaking a major refurbishment of their waste water treatment facility and was looking for innovative ways to extend the usable life of their existing infrastructure. Extending the life of existing infrastructure was a more economical option than replacing with new infrastructure. VIP and approved VIP Applicator RIW Industrie Service proposed lining the main pipes in the plant with a highly abrasion resistant, flexible spray applied membrane that was potable waterapproved. After careful consideration of the alternatives VIP`s QuickSpray Supreme W was specified for the internal lining of all the existing main water transfer pipes. RIW Industrie Services used specialised application equipment to spray apply the instant curing membrane to the internal surfaces of the pipes. Due to the spray applied application processand the instant curing characteristics of the VIP lining the pipes were completed in just a few days and the whole project was completed from start to finish in 1 ½ weeks greatly reducing the down time of the facility.
