 CIPP Equipment and Materials

1 // HammerHead Trenchless Bluelight LED CIPP Lining System
The Bluelight LED CIPP Lining System from HammerHead Trenchless is an advanced light-curing system for the rehabilitation of laterals and small drain pipes. The technology empowers CIPP installers by alleviating the time pressures of other lining systems. The specially formulated resin only cures under light in the blue wavelength (444-457 nm) giving installers virtually unlimited working time between liner wet-out and curing. Once the liner is in place, the automated curing system pulls the LED light head through the liner, curing the resin almost instantly — as fast as 5.4 feet per minute. Instead of waiting hours for the liner to cure, a 50-foot sewer line could be fully cured in under 10 minutes. The system has a touch-screen interface and three light head options to cure liners 3 to 10 inches in diameter. 800-331-6653;

2 // Hurricane Reinstatement Solutions Twister

It comes in both 110- and 240-volt models. Both units feature an open-air drum concept and are only 17.5 inches wide, allowing for tight areas. They come with Baldor Motors available in 1.5, 2 and 3 hp models and ABB drives with an internal clutch for safety of the user and longevity of the cable. Both units offer a cable distribution array allowing the cable to be positioned in multiple angles and positions while reducing the traditional weights of other tools. 702-376-1483;

3 // MaxLiner MaxLight
MaxLiner’s LED-based UV curing system, MaxLight, optimizes CIPP operations by increasing work efficiency.

6 // Pipeline Renewal Technologies SpeedyLight+
SpeedyLight+ from Pipeline Renewal Technologies is an LED-based UV solution for CIPP that cures at speeds ranging from 0.66 to 3.3 feet per minute. Because it’s compatible with felt (as well as invertible glass fiber), it can cure 90-degree bends in lines as small as 4 inches, as well as other challenging geometries like transitions and verticals. Free of styrene and amines (and the associated odor), UV-based cure technologies raise fewer objections from the public and a crew. The single-part vinyl ester resin requires no mixing and eliminates shelf life and working time challenges. It uses LED lamps to cure, drawing half the power of traditional UV technology while providing a more powerful cure. The integrated camera lets operators monitor the curing process in real time for optimal quality control. The highly portable design allows for access from even the most remote sites, curing up to 328 feet of liner in pipe 4 to 12 inches. 866-936-8476;

7 // Waterline Renewal Technologies LightRay LR3 LED UV System
The LightRay LR3 LED UV System from Waterline Renewal Technologies allows the operator complete control of the curing process. It can significantly reduce costs and risks compared to traditional thermo-setting or ambient-cured CIPP liners, creating new opportunities for plumbers and municipal contractors. It is both a pull-in-place and spot repair system that provides the flexibility to perform both operations by changing the double-strand cold LED repair packer. Non-VOC resin is pre-impregnated into the high-performance fiberglass liner and shipped ready to install for no-dig small-diameter pipe infrastructure repairs. Once the install site is prepped, casting times in less than 10 minutes can be achieved, eliminating the risk of premature or prolonged curing times due to temperature variations. It can be used to repair pipe diameters of 3, 4 or 6 inches, including transitions. The 100-foot hose couples with 5-, 10- or 20-foot packers to perform repairs. 866-336-2568;
