CIPP refers to cured-in-place-piping. It’s a process where pipes are repaired or replaced without extensive excavation. It’s also a much more cost-effective solution than total pipe repair. We’ve all seen the disruption that traditional pipe repairs cause. Companies frequently have to tear up large sections of concrete or floors to get to the problem. There are certain scenarios in which pipe replacement is necessary, but more companies are turning to CIPP as a solution. With CIPP, no massive digging is necessary, and pipes don’t need to be fully replaced. Here’s a breakdown of what CIPP is and how it can help your business.
The Industrial CIPP Process
On a very basic level, CIPP allows for the repair of pipes with the use of epoxy. A tube with epoxy is inserted into an existing pipe that may be cracked or leaking. Then the tube inflates, pushing the epoxy out along the inner lining of the pipe. It hardens, leaving a pipe within a pipe. The new pipe solves the leak or break issues without having to dig up and replace damaged pipes. The faster solution enables companies to minimize disruption from leaks or pipe repairs. It helps avoid the added costs of traditional pipe repair caused by closures.
The Benefits of CIPP to Businesses
With CIPP, doors can stay open, employees can keep coming to work, and customers can still access stores. There’s nothing more painful to business owners than lost revenue – especially when it comes as a result of a faulty building as opposed to upgrade renovations. CIPP is an affordable solution with minimal disruption that keeps businesses in operation. Lower costs also help businesses stay profitable. Large pipe replacement projects can be a killer blow to companies depending on monthly cash flow to meet their obligations.
