What Does Lining With Discrete Pipes Mean?
Lining with discrete pipes is a method of lining a pipe with a series of shorter pipes. It is a form of sliplining that involves the pushing or pulling of multiple pipe segments through a host pipe. Slipling is used in trenchless rehabilitation to extend the life of older pipes that have become defective over time.
Trenchlesspedia Explains Lining With Discrete Pipes
One method for rehabilitation of a defective pipe is to use a lining with discrete pipes. These individual pipe segments are inserted one after another until they extend the full length of the host pipe. Grout is used to fill the annular space.
Lining with discrete pipes is used to line straight pipes that may be suffering from infiltration or other defects. The method takes advantage of the latest advancements in glass-reinforced plastic, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), or other durable materials.
