Steps In Pipe Line Installation
It is just another sign that we’re moving forward with technological advancement. Modern technology has helped us in resolving most of our problems and made plans together with equipment to accomplish tasks that were considered impossible once. And regardless of how big the problem is, it can be taken care of. Today, many of the pipeline leakage issues can be minimized as much as possible by installing quality pipe lining.
You may possibly be wondering on how pipe lining is installed. If yes, then I recommend that you read the whole content of this article.
Number 1. If you want to eliminate a culvert, then inspect it first to ensure that the liner will be able to get through it.
Number 2. There are a couple of ways of inserting the liner and it’s either done by pushing it or pulling it from the other side. It does not mean that you should do it manually since you can avail different equipment as well as techniques for it and do not forget to spare at least 5ft exposed portion. It is important that it is appropriately aligned to have an equal slope.
Number 3. For improved security, you may want to consider installing a water tight seal that can be done by installing or positioning a gasket. Installing the gasket to the groove will be recommended.
Number 4. When done, now’s the time to attach the chains and couplings. The chains must be double wrapped 2ft away from the coupling and on each side of coupling, hoist a chain.
Number 5. And at this stage, you may now snap the liners. The male bevel should be aligned in female bevel. So, make sure to pull together the couplings, which will cause the female end to make way for male end as it expands. Assuming that you’ve correctly done the alignment, the couplings are going to snap lock.
Number 6. Fused liners should be inserted in culvert by pushing it. Be sure to keep on pushing and pulling it until it makes the alignment perfect. Snap the new piece of the pipe to the preceding and then again, push and pull it in an effort to fix the alignment in culvert. Leave enough space in every pipe that is inserted in culvert so they can join freely to each other.
Number 7. Culvert ends need to be sealed and annular space must be grouted. In addition to that, the space between the annular space and the pipe lining must be grouted. This is to fill empty spaces that have formed at time of previous washout.
