RELINEAPTEC offers solutions for the rehabilitation of pressure sewer and gas pipes as well as pipes in potable water networks with UV-cured GRP pipe liners
RELINEAPTEC GmbH is a newly founded company within the RELINE UV® Group. The company offers non-excavation rehabilitation systems for sewage pipes with UV-cured GRP pipe liners. The development also covers solutions for the rehabilitation of pressure gas pipes and pipes in potable water networks.
“The sector of pressure pipe rehabilitation is different from the non-excavation rehabilitation with pipe liners in the mirror area,” says RELINEEUROPE Director Christian Noll, who has also taken over management of RELINEAPTEC GmbH. “In many cases we are dealing with different structures, both in terms of project development and customer groups.” This is the focus of the new company. RELINEAPTEC will sell UV-cured GRP pipe liners, which have been specially developed for the rehabilitation of different pressure pipes with custom solutions that have been tailored to this market. The suffix “APTEC” stands for “Advanced Liner Technology for pressure pipes”.
RELINEAPTEC will introduce a Total Quality Management (TQM) system, in which its customers are also integrated. This will oversee agreements concerning product delivery and consulting services as well as the fulfilment of specifications regarding the implementation of rehabilitation projects, says Noll. This project contracting is intended to ensure that the rehabilitated pipes conform to the highest quality standards. “TQM - Total Quality Management, since its foundation we have pursued a holistic management concept at RELINEEUROPE for continuous and extensive quality improvements of the liners installed on the construction site.”
With the AlphalinerPN in its various versions, RELINEAPTEC already offers a specially designed static and self-supporting pipe liners for the rehabilitation of pressure drainage pipes. In particular, the Alphaliner stands out thanks to its highly durable, seamless thermoplastic inner lining. In the “Darmstadt tipping trough test”, the abrasion resistance of the AlphalinerPN was barely measurable (0.06 mm). Additionally, material samples also showed no visual changes during high-pressure purging with a load intensity of 450 W/mm². The AlphalinerPN thus fulfils all standard requirements. The AlphalinerPN is a pressure pipe liner in accordance with Class A of DIN EN ISO 11295. In the future, the Alphaliner will be offered for the rehabilitation of pressure sewage pipes with an operating pressure of up to 16 bar.
RELINEAPTEC is also offering new solutions for the rehabilitation of pressure gas and potable water pipes. With the “GasLiner”, a GRP pipe liner is being especially developed for the rehabilitation of pressure gas pipes. Here, the company is involved in a research project for the GDN (Gas Distribution Network), Great Britain on behalf of the WRC (Water Research Centre). The long-term study of these pipe liners is currently under way in a pilot project in Wales in Great Britain.
A GRP pipe liner for the rehabilitation of potable water pipe with an operational pressure of up to 16 bar is also in development. Hygiene certification according to KTW guidelines, DVGW W270 is expected shortly.
