Steps In Pipe Line Installation

It is just another sign that we’re moving forward with technological advancement. Modern technology has helped us in resolving most of our problems and made plans together with equipment to accomplish tasks that were considered impossible once. From small to serious issues, everything can be taken care of. Today, many of the pipeline leakage issues can be minimized as much as possible by installing quality pipe lining.

Possibly, you are puzzled on how pipe lining is installed. If you want to know more about this, then I suggest that you keep on reading.

Number 1. If you want to eliminate a culvert, then inspect it first to ensure that the liner will be able to get through it.

Number 2. There are a couple of ways of inserting the liner and it’s either done by pushing it or pulling it from the other side. On the other hand, it doesn’t mean that you ought to do the entire process manually since you can avail different equipment as well as techniques for it and do not forget to spare at least 5ft exposed portion. It is essential to have it aligned appropriately to have an equal slope.

Number 3. For improved security, consider installing a water tight seal, which could be carried out by installing or positioning a gasket. It is advisable if you are going to install the gasket to the groove.

Number 4. Now is the time to attach chains and couplings when you are done. The chains must be double wrapped 2ft away from the coupling and on each side of coupling, hoist a chain.

Number 5. You can start snapping the liners at this stage. The male bevel should be aligned in female bevel. So be sure that you pull together the couplings which cause female end to make way for male end as this expands. The couplings are going to snap lock assuming that you have correctly done the alignment.

Number 6. The fused liners ought to be inserted in culvert by pushing it. Just keep pushing and pulling it until it makes the alignment perfect. Snap the new piece of pipe to the preceding and again, push and pull it in order to fix the alignment in culvert. Leave enough space in every pipe that is inserted in culvert so they can join freely to each other.

Number 7. Culvert ends need to be sealed and annular space must be grouted. Not only that, the space between annular space and the pipe lining must be grouted. This is intentionally done to fill empty spaces that have formed at time of previous washout.
