Cured-in-place-pipe, or CIPP, offers a cost-effective and long-lasting solution to sewer and other pipe issues. A key feature of this repair process relates to its fast project completion time. At E.R. Plumbing Services, we use blue light ray curing to facilitate rapid completion and excellent results on every CIPP restoration we perform.
Deployment of the Prepared Liner
The CIPP blue light ray repair process begins like all other CIPP repairs. We prepare the liner in the wet-out stage. This involves stretching the liner and coating it with a special resin. Our robotic puller places the liner within the pipe. After deploying a calibration and inverter tube, the resin-coated side of the liner adheres to the pipe's interior wall. After we verify the liner's placement with a submersible sewer camera, we initiate the blue light curing process.
Curing the Resin With Blue Light
We use an LED ultraviolet light with a blue wavelength to cure the specially prepared resin on CIPP liners. The automated curing system pulls the light through the inverted liner. The LED blue light cures the resin at a speed five times faster than hot air, steam, or ambient temperature curing. In a typical pipe restoration project, we cure a 50-foot length of sewer pipe in just 10 minutes with the blue light.
When We Recommend Blue Light Curing
Our technicians recommend blue light curing for urgent repairs. This includes sewer pipes with leaks that could shutter your business's doors or compromise your safety. We also suggest blue light curing when you can't wait for a longer pipe restoration timeline.
