Rehabilitation

Thermoflex® spoolable pipe can also be pulled through existing steel pipe.

Inserting Thermoflex® pipe in existing pipelines can dramatically reduce installation costs by eliminating the cost associated with trenching. Using this technique, the Thermoflex® sizing is dependent upon the restrictions in the steel pipe. It is advisable to run a pig with wireline to clear any restrictions before proceeding with Thermoflex® installation.

 

The pull through rehabilitation process makes it easy for Thermoflex® piping to be inserted and pulled through long distances inside of existing pipelines.

Pipe rehabilitation with Thermoflex® piping can be performed with minimal disruption to ongoing operations.

The benefits of using the pull through rehabilitation method include:

  • Reduced costs vs. installing new steel line

  • Shorter lead time and less downtime

  • Long term corrosion resistance 

  • Miniminal environmental disturbance
