Steps In Pipe Line Installation
It is just another sign that we’re moving forward with technological advancement. Modern technology helped in dealing with a number of different problems we have and created plans along 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.
Possibly, you are puzzled on how pipe lining is installed. If yes, then I recommend that you read the whole content of this article.
Number 1. Inspect the culvert first if you want to eliminate it; this is to ensure that the liner will be able to get through.
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. It is important that it is appropriately aligned to have an equal slope.
Number 3. For improved security, consider installing a water tight seal, which could be carried out by installing or positioning a gasket. It is advisable if you are going to install the gasket to the groove.
Number 4. When you are done, the next thing you should do is attach the chains and couplings. The chains must be double wrapped 2ft away from the coupling and on each side of coupling, hoist a chain.
Number 5. You can start snapping the liners at this stage. For the male bevel, see to it that it’s aligned to the female bevel. So, make sure to pull together the couplings, which will cause the female end to make way for male end as it 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. Be sure to keep on pushing and pulling it until it makes the alignment perfect. Snap the new piece of the pipe to the preceding and then again, push and pull it in an effort to fix the alignment in culvert. Leave enough space in every pipe that is inserted in culvert so they can join freely to each other.
Number 7. Culvert ends must be sealed and annular space must be grouted. Apart from that, the space between the pipe as well as the annular space should be grouted. This is intentionally done to fill empty spaces that have formed at time of previous washout.
