Steps In Pipe Line Installation
It is another sign that we really are on an upward spiral with technology. Modern technology helps in resolving so many of our problems and created 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. These days, there are many pipeline leakage problems that could be minimize as by way of installing quality pipe lining.
You may possibly be wondering on how pipe lining is installed. I suggest that you keep on reading if you want to know more about this.
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. And to have an equal slope, it is vital that you have it aligned correctly.
Number 3. Consider installing a water tight seal for improved security, which can be done by installing or positioning a gasket. It’ll be recommended if the gasket is installed to the groove.
Number 4. When done, now’s the time to attach the chains and couplings. As for the chains, make sure that it is double wrapped 2 ft away from coupling and on each side of coupling, hoist a chain.
Number 5. At this stage, you can start snapping the liners. Male bevel has to be aligned in the female bevel. So be sure that you pull together the couplings which cause female end to make way for male end as this expands. The couplings will snap lock assuming that you’ve correctly done the alignment.
Number 6. The fused liners ought to be inserted in culvert by pushing it. See to it that you keep pushing and pulling it until it makes the alignment perfect. Snap new piece of pipe to the preceding and once again, push and pull it to be able to fix the alignment in culvert. Leave enough space in each pipe that’s inserted in the culvert so by that, they can freely join each other.
Number 7. Culvert ends need to be sealed and annular space must be grouted. Not only that, the space between annular space and the pipe lining must be grouted. This is done to be able to fill empty spaces that have formed at time of previous washout.
