Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Pipeline Infrastructure


This paper provides an introductory discussion on the rehabilitation of a deteriorated pipe structure by insertion renewal with continuous lengths of polyolefin pipe. This sliplining or insertion renewal procedure is a cost-effective means; by this a new pipeline is obtained with minimum property damage, minimum disruption of service, and minimum interference with surface traffic. An inherent benefit of this technology is the installation of a new, structurally sound, leak-free piping system with improved flow characteristics.
