As part of Drainforce’s lining Framework with the Vale of Glamorgan Council a no dig solution was found to rehabilitate a problematic aged surface water drainage system with the least disruption to customers.
The Line in question was a 54m Gravity Surface Water Line. Pre CCTV Identified structural defects throughout the line.
The line began at a 450mm diameter at the inlet however changes in diameter throughout the line made it impossible to rehabilitate with standard lining techniques.
Through investigation and design Drainforce manufactured a venturi able to blow shingle around a liner within a pipe filling any voids.
Drainforce lined the pipe with a 450mm liner with a Diameter change to the smallest size of 375mm.
The larger sections of pipe above 450mm had small excavations exposed to allow Shingle to be blown around the annulus of the liner and pipe.
Drainforce used their specialist UV Lining PODS to UV Cure the liner in question.
Laterals were re connected to the main and our Robotic Cutter used to open the Laterals from the inside.
Once the Cutting and cleaning was complete Drainforce UV lined 5 sections of Drainage Runs down stream of the channel drainage installation.
