Damaged and leaky pipes out of concrete, GRP, steel, ductile iron can be relined and renovated with Profiled Polyethylene Pipes in almost every diameter. Here, the old pipe serves as an empty conduit for the new pipe out of PE and therefore a completely new, self-contained pipe system can be built.
However, the use of profiled pipes especially in big diameters creates new stable pipe systems with a high static load capacity. For the static calculation of the new pipeline two things must be taken into consideration, the installation process and the operating condition of the pipeline. The new system will benefit from the extremely long service life of polyethylene pipes (> 100 years).
