‘Sliplining’ refers to the insertion of a new ‘carrier’ pipe into an existing damaged, or deteriorated ‘host’ pipe. The ideal host pipes for slip lining are straight with no deformities.
There are two types of slip lining:
Continuous slip lining involves installing prefabricated piping to run the entire length of the pipe under repair. This lining can be installed in lengths of up to 1000m. Segmental sliplining comes in shorter lengths that are joined onsite until the job is complete.
- Cost-effective solution to pipe renovation where the current internal diameter of a pipe is larger than needed
- Quick Installation. Continuous sliplining can be installed at a rate of up to 50m per hour. Segmental sliplining can be fitted at 15m per hour
- Can be used in a wide variety of pipe sizes. Continuous sliplining can be used on pipes with diamteres between 63-1500mm
