Mechanical Pipe Repair System
Because Nu Flow has the unique ability to fix both pressurized piping systems and non-pressurized piping systems using existing access points, Nu Flow offers the most viable and least disruptive option for pipe renewal.
Non-Pressurized Epoxy Lining (CIPP)
The cured in-place pipe restoration process is an economical and efficient alternative to traditional pipe system replacement. Our technology allows us to restore and Re-Nu aged, corroded piping systems to a “better than new” condition without removing them. The epoxy liner installed to the pipes’ interior will seal and protect the system from further deterioration, dramatically extending the life of the piping systems. The process can be used on a variety of piping materials, which include clay, concrete, metal, iron steel, PVC and fiberglass.
Nu Flow’s Pull-in-Place structural liner process is a patented, non-destructive technology that allows anyone occupying the building(s) to continue with their daily activities — preventing displacement, business closure and minimizing pipe system down time.
This innovative, cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) system creates a long-term, structural pipe inside the existing host pipe system without digging or destruction to buildings or landscape. The pipe is rehabilitated to a better-than-new condition, with an increased flow rate, eliminated weakened joints, sealed cracks and eradicating the chance of groundwater pollution. The Nu Flow structural lining technology is best suited for 2 cm to 30 cm in diameter. Specialty applications are available for larger pipe systems. Read More…
Pressurized (Epoxy Coating)
The epoxy coating process is an economical and efficient alternative to traditional pipe system replacement. Our technology restores aged, corroded piping systems and copper pipes that have pinhole leaks.
Our epoxy coating product and system is the result of over 7000 research hours dedicated to finding the perfect viscosity, air temperature cure time and equipment needed to achieve optimal pipe adherence that provides a longer-lasting piping solution. Once the epoxy coating is applied to the interior of the pipe, it will seal and protect the system from further deterioration, dramatically extending the system’s life. The process can be used on a variety of pipe materials, which include galvanized steel, cast/black iron, copper and lead.
Nu Flow’s blown-in epoxy coating process is unique and patented. This non-invasive procedure permits residents and workers to continue with their daily activities, preventing displacement, business closure and pipe system downtime.
We first drain the water out of the piping system and then run dry heated air through the pipes to ensure the removal of the moisture in the pipes. We then sand blast them clean removing all of the corrosion built up and create an anchor tooth for the epoxy to adhere to. Once the pipe is fully cleaned we then apply an epoxy coating system (approved by UL to NSF 61 standards) to the piping system with filter instrument quality air until the pipe is fully coated creating a barrier internal pipe coating between the water and the pipe eliminating future corrosion.
