CFRP Pipe Repair: How To Ensure Success
CFRP pipe lining has proven to be a valuable piping repair technology. Compared to conventional excavation-type repairs, it requires less excavation and disruption to above-ground operations, as well as shorter time out of service. However, without a thorough and accurate QA/QC program, all the positive CFRP returns can quickly vanish if the work is not performed correctly. Accurate QA/QC allows for greater engineering certainty and faster pipe reopening. A CFRP repair that does not have the required strength will require extensive and expensive rework.
