Trelleborg takes over pipe liner production line and customer base from TWE / Trelit
Dec 21, 2015
Trelleborg’s pipe seals operation has recently integrated additional pipe liner production capabilities at its manufacturing facility in Taurage, Lithuania. The new technology was obtained from TWE / Trelit along with its customer base, which has also been taken over by Trelleborg to ensure continued service.
The new manufacturing line is expected to commence production in mid-November and will see a new product added to Trelleborg’s pipe liner portfolio - the Drainliner PP.
Bill Hagenberg, Business Unit President for Trelleborg’s pipe seals operation, says: “Since implementing our own liner facility in Lithuania in February 2014, our liner production has increased in 2015 by 50 percent. We expect this speed of growth will continue next year, following the installation of this new technology and an extended customer base. The production line will enable us to significantly increase our output to fulfill the increasing demands from our customers and allow us to grow further within the pipe seals market.
“Additionally, as a result of acquiring this technology we will be able to supply our customers even faster. In fact, we expect production speed to increase by up to five times. We will also be able to provide liners of larger dimensions and thicknesses too. Our new offering will include pipe liners of up to DN 1,600 in dimension, with dual walls if required and an increased thickness from six to 24 millimeters.”
The Drainliner PP will be produced in Lithuania alongside Trelleborg’s other pipe seals solutions, the DrainPlusLiner 2.0, DrainFlexLiner, MtH Liner "Basic", DrainLCR Liner and Hatprofiles.
Trelleborg’s pipe rehabilitation solutions use a no-dig cured in place pipe (CIPP) lining method, meaning that disruptive roadworks are not required. This process uses a flexible tube liner of corrosion-proof synthetic and/or glass fibers, which is wetted inside with reaction resins and introduced into the host pipe through a manhole, access pit or access eye with the help of an inversion unit.
The new production line will enable Trelleborg to service the entire pipe cycle with its high performance solutions, technical support and expertise more effectively; ensuring projects are delivered successfully and on time.
