Renovation & Rehabilitation # 1998 Gothenburg
A three way partnership has resulted in the development of a new solution to the refurbishment of old iron and steel gas service pipes. The solution which has been developed allows a flexible polyethylene replacement pipe to be inserted into the old pipe system. This avoids the need for the costly excavations or installation practices which have traditionally been required to overcome the problems of inserting pipes through swept bend and elbow fittings. An explanation of the renovation technique will be given together with an account of the experiences and benefits which have been identified through the use of the system by Transco.
