Pipeline and Manhole Rehabilitation
Prism provides no-dig solutions for both structures and pipelines. Deteriorated structures allow the transport of sediments, which can lead to sinkholes. Our cementitious or epoxy products allow us to effectively seal the structure while greatly improving its structural capacity and lifespan. Failing pipes create the same set of problems in addition to affecting pipe capacity. Prism offers cured-in-place (CIP) point repairs and comprehensive cured-in-place (CIPP) for small and large diameter pipes. Our CIPP solutions are an excellent alternative to dig and replace and in many cases are a more cost-effective solution. In addition, this method of trenchless repair brings optimal performance back to water and sewer systems without disruption above ground.
Mainline Cured-in-Place Rehab
Mainline Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) rehabilitation is a highly effective and viable repair method used to fix costly mainline pipe failures. The Mainline CIPP process works by inserting a thick felt material into an existing mainline pipe. This felt material is coated on the outside with an epoxy resin. Once it is inserted, the material hardens against the existing pipeline walls and seals any flaws. This process not only repairs mainline problems but also helps prevent any future damage. Mainline CIPP rehab can help reduce costs with minimal disruption of operations compared to other traditional repair methods, making it a preferred option for many companies.
Lateral Cured-in-Place Pipe Rehab
Lateral Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) rehabilitation is a cutting-edge approach to pipe repair and restoration. Lateral lines allow water to flow into sewers, and lateral CIPP involves creating new pipes inside existing lateral pipelines. The process starts with clearing out a lateral pipe, then lining it with an epoxy resin tube that solidifies when heated. This process forms a new, high-grade hydraulic pipeline that is more durable than traditional pipe repairs. During the installation, a camera monitors the process so technicians can ensure proper placement of the pipes. Additionally, Lateral CIPP rehab typically takes less time than traditional techniques, causing minimal disruption to property owners. All of these features make this method particularly appealing for those whose sewage lines are old or damaged from corrosion or root intrusion.
Trenchless Point Repairs
Rausch Quick Lock Point Repair
Rausch Quick Lock Point Repair is a trenchless rehabilitation technology that uses resin to fix pipes with limited access. This method was developed by Rausch USA, and it is becoming increasingly popular around the world. This trenchless point repair technique includes placing a flat, circular base over a damaged section of pipe, then bonding it to the pipe with a special resin. From there, a roller will compact the area, forming a shape that allows for a secure hold. Once complete, a UV light or steam-curing technique is used to harden the resin and permanently affix it to the pipe in need of repair. This cured-in-place installation technique requires no excavation or removal of existing pipelines, making it an excellent choice for carbon fiber or trenchless repairs when safe access isn't available.
Manhole rehabilitation is vital to ensure safe and effective utility access in our communities. As manholes age, castings can erode, causing safety hazards and decreased flow capacity. Traditional manhole repair often involves significant road excavation surrounding the manhole structure. To avoid this costly measure, manhole rehabilitation utilizes trenchless technology to both restore manhole components, saving time, money, and other resources. By using specialized methods such as structural shotcrete plastering or epoxy cementitious injection grouting, manholes can be repaired without the need for large-scale excavation. Through manhole rehabilitation, we can ensure that our utility systems are maintained effectively without disrupting daily traffic patterns.
