Cured-in-place pipe lining solutions have been designed to address the complex challenges of pipe repair and maintenance without the need for excavation. CIPP products like those below not only simplify the rehabilitation process but also ensure long-term results, minimizing disruptions and maximizing efficiency.

Emagineered Solutions THE SHOOTER
THE SHOOTER from Emagineered Solutions is a continuous air-inverter for CIPP. THE SHOOTER 12 has a range of 4 to 12 inches and up to 15 inches with the conversion kit, and a knife gate for after the liner tail passes. It comes with either the self-lubricating hand truck or basic non-oiler cart. THE SHOOTER 24 for 15 to 24 inches is trailer-mounted and comes with a knife gate and remote operating station on the fender. An optional conversion kit expands its range from 6 to 24 inches. Additional equipment offered includes full steam packages with portable dry steam generators, steam hose, A and B stations, water cure flanges, and LED UV Y adapters. 541-504-0416; www.theshootercipp.com

FORMADRAIN Formapox 101
Formapox 101 from FORMADRAIN is a durable steam-cured liner that eliminates the mess and cost of traditional dig-and-replace methods. It is made from a watertight, thin, yet extremely strong composite material and a specially formulated resin. The liner is bright blue in color. It is the mainstay of the company’s pushed- or pulled-in-place, steam-cured, fiberglass and epoxy underground pipe repair system. It can be used in line sizes from 2 to 48 inches. The repair is so thin that pipes sustain their original flow capacities, even with a liner installed in such small diameters. 888-337-6764; www.formadrain.com

MaxLiner WovoGlass
WovoGlass from MaxLiner is designed to withstand extreme wear. Its seamless, circular-knitted construction combines polyester yarns with extensible fiberglass reinforcement to deliver superior physical properties. It is three times stronger than most CIPP liners with the ability to negotiate multiple bends up to 90 degrees and transition several pipe sizes including 4 to 6 inch. It easily wets-out, inverts and transitions with very low pressure so there’s no need for step inflation to exercise the liner. It can be cured by ambient, heat or LED light. 877-426-5948; www.maxlinerusa.com

Picote Solutions Dual-Color Epoxy Brush Coating System
The Dual-Color Epoxy Brush Coating System from Picote Solutions allows technicians to rehabilitate pipes from 1.25 to 12 inches for drains, sewers, water pipes, electrical conduits, and heat and air-conditioning ducts by brush-casting a coating. The coating resin forms a pipe inside the original pipe that is tested, safe and environmentally friendly. The new pipe is damp-proof, corrosion-resistant and wear-resistant. It is ASTM- and NSF-certified (NSF/ANSI 61-5). It is a 100% solids epoxy, and the method allows for clear visual verification during the application process. Apply to small areas or all drains in multistory buildings. The system is practical and easily fits in tight places. 219-440-1404; www.picotesolutions.com

Prime Resins PrimeCem MSM

PrimeCem MSM (Microsilica Mortar) from Prime Resins is a blend of Portland cement, graded silica sand, fibers and silica fume. The mortar may be hand- or spray-applied in a nominal thickness of 1/4 to 2 inches. Thicker applications can be achieved by applying it in successive lifts. Uses include repairing concrete walls, ceilings, lining brick or concrete manholes and lift stations, and horizontal pipe repair. Microsilica Mortar provides an extremely dense matrix and will accept coatings at earlier ages than typical Portland cement repair products. This product contains a migrating corrosion inhibitor. 800-321-7212; www.primeresins.com

Source One Environmental Thunder Drum 800

For high-capacity pipe lining repairs, Source One Environmental offers the Thunder Drum 800 — a versatile CIPP inversion lining drum that rehabilitates pipe diameters 12 inches and below. This range in sizing makes it ideal for sewer laterals or in-home residential repairs. Suitable for ambient, hot water, steam and UV light curing, it is also hand wheel-mountable on both sides, Storz compatible to quickly swap accessories, and has multiple windows to allow for maximum visibility of in-unit liner movement. Built from stainless steel and with premium fittings, it is made for a long service life.

Factory-controlled production with rigorous material testing ensures a consistent quality product that conforms to and exceeds the expected standards. The material is highly flexible, allowing it to expand and fit tightly to the host pipe, including changes in shape and dimensions. It is produced in sizes ranging from 4 to 36 inches in diameter, and the wall thickness can be varied according to the application.
