Pipe Rehabilitation With Stainless Steel Sleeve

The next ISTT educational webinar (available only to ISTT members) will be given by Christopher Rings and Mark André Haebler of Uhrig Kanaltechnik GmbH. This webinar is organized by the ISTT Technology and Education Committee. ISTT plans more webinars in the coming months as our usual face-to-face meetings are on hold.

Pipe rehabilitation and repair with stainless steel sleeve is a purely mechanically installation system made of stainless steel and an EPDM compression seal for all common sewer, well, drinking water, and industrial pipes. The stainless-steel sleeve can be used for many different applications. Besides normal cracks, fragmented pipes, or in- & exfiltration you can also use it for root penetration or leaking joints. If the damage is longer than the sealing area of a single sleeve, it can be installed in serial as well.

The system seals and stabilizes the damage completely by mechanical, that means without any chemicals. Furthermore, the system is suitable for all common pipe materials (concrete, plastic and so on). The locking system – which is placed in the inside of the stainless-steel sleeve – ensures that the sleeve stays permanently in position. To expand the sleeve a special packer or special assembly tools are necessary. After the rehabilitation, the sleeve has its own static capability and absorbs the natural tectonic movements of the pipe. And the WHY, we will explain during the presentation. This will not be a commercial webinar; we also reflect to the IKT report of partial repair and the DWA and EN standards.
