During the operation of underground pipelines, leaks occur from poor connections, corrosion and displacement of pipes, which lead to soil retreat, pollution of the aquifer from sewage pipelines, loss of drinking water, or the inflow of contaminants into the networks.
The Αποφράξεις Αναγνώστου Μεταμόρφωση makes it possible to eliminate leaks or inputs by repairing existing pipelines without surface excavation.
Methods of pipeline repair
Robotic pipeline repair system without excavation – POINT SYSTEM
During the operation of underground pipelines, leaks occur from poor connections, corrosion and displacement of pipes. This leads to soil retreat, pollution of the aquifer from sewage pipelines, loss of drinking water, or the inflow of contaminants into the networks.
The Point System makes it possible to eliminate leaks or inputs by repairing existing pipelines without surface excavation.
How to repair
In the event that damage or damage is detected in a pipeline, with a previous videotaping or leak test, a repair is made exactly at the problematic point. The robotic system enters from the shaft corresponding to the pipeline and is led to the repair point.
The robotic system carries a fiber-reinforced and impregnated membrane with special resins, which it applies to the site of the fault and which it restores. The resins used have high strength and elasticity, are ecological and health safe.
Advantages of the system
- Robotic system enters through the pipeline without requiring digging to repair the faulty conductor.
- Vehicles movements is not hindered during the repair process.
- The repair is done exactly at the problematic point, minimizing the time and cost of the required work.
- While repairing, the pipeline has a partial operation without any particular problem and is put into full operation in the network 2 hours after the operation.
- System can be applied when there is an inflow of external water in the pipeline even with high pressure.
The Point System is applied in drainage and water supply pipes made of cement, reinforced concrete, ceramic, plastic, cross section Φ100-Φ1200. Can be used for:
- Water penetration sealing
- Problematic links
- Root penetration
- Holes or cracks
- Prominent lateral connection
- Corrosion in the walls of the pipes
Pipeline rehabilitation without excavation – SPR Technologies
With the SPR method, fast, efficient and economical restoration of 100% sewer pipes is achieved without excavation.
Pipeline repair procedure
A specialized folding machine, which adapts to pipes of all sizes and shapes, enters an old pipe and builds a new one through the folding pipe method. The system is then solidified – embedded and ready for use.
- 100% No excavation
- 100% Static adequacy
- Installation on operating networks
- Application in conductors Φ150-Φ5500
- Construction of long pipes without intermediate wells
- Minimal traffic obstruction
- Minimal space and staffing requirements
- Savings in cost and time compared to conventional methods
- Worldwide application experience for over 20 years.
Universal inner pipe lining method – KRT Flexiliner
With the Flexiliner method of the company KRT, a universal internal lining of the circular profile drain pipe is achieved and DN 100 to DN 1250.
We insert an epoxy-coated polyester-reinforced fiberglass hose through a shaft into the duct under repair. Then we fill the pipe with the pressurized air. The rubber duct inflates and is applied directly on the old existing duct and at the same time solidifies permanently.
In this way we have fast, efficient and economical repair of pipeline sections up to 125m long.
Advantages of the system
- No excavation required
- Minimal traffic obstruction
- Short application time (one day per pipeline unit)
- Improving static strength
- Improving pipeline roughness
- Simple installation, mobile unit, possibility of application inside the buildings
- Minimum installation requirements
- Guaranteed lifespan 50 years
Robotic pipeline repair system with milling robot
The robotic system IMS TURBO cutter is used for work inside the pipeline where no human hand can enter. In case of damage or damage to a pipeline, surgery and repair is performed exactly at the problem point.
The robot operator monitors the process of working on the screen from the video camera located on the front of the robot and records them. The milling robot operates by design in water as well.
Prevents the pipeline from shutting down with the only possible cause being limited visibility when the water is too cloudy.
Milling robots are used to remove protruding obstacles such as (roots, protruding supplies, solidified deposits, etc.). Also, we use them for grinding, grinding, preparing the surface before repair with resins, cutting the inner lining at various points of supply, tasks.
Pipeline control with camera
Because the main sewer pipe is underground, it is difficult to access and see what is really going on. A drainage diagnosis with a camera can be valuable there.
A detector use a small camera that is sent through the sewer line, until it reaches the blockage.
This will tell the plumber where the blockages are and what problems they are causing. Checking the piping with a camera, also gives us valuable information.
This gives as recommendation on the most effective, least costly method to solve the problem.
Disconnection of the main pipeline
If the pipe is in good condition and has only an internal blockage, then the blockage company may unblock it without replacing the pipe (which requires excavation of your property).
We sent a special grade drill through the main sewer line. The screw head can break the blockage to open the flow of the pipe.
Blockage of a branch line
Sometimes it may not be a general duct obstruction and the obstruction may not be in the centerline of the basement but in a pipe through a toilet, bathtub or sink.
In this case, the unblocking company can use special flexible tools to dismantle the blockage in the industry line. This is usually the easiest and cheapest way to set up a backup sewer line.
Time to call a professional for pipeline repair
With so many running every day, people ignores what to throw in the sinks to avoid clogging and costs. It is no longer a surprise that your home’s pipeline system can become clogged and clogged over and over again.
Once you notice signs such as multiple pipes clogging at the same time, toilets not pumping water properly, or bubbles coming out of the drains, it’s time to call a reputable blockage company.
