Pipe Relining Technique : QuickLock Point Repair
What is QuickLock Point Repair?
A QuickLock point repair is one of several options used to fix a damaged pipeline. A major benefit is no excavation is needed using this trenchless technology. A QuickLock point pipe repair is the newest and most trusted method used to rehabilitate any kind of pipeline and can be installed with flow present.
The QuickLock point repair system is constructed of a 316L stainless steel structural body covered by a seamless EDPM compression seal. QuickLock sleeves can be installed with flow present due to the fact that the packer is hollow, allowing for the flow to pass through. Also, the process can be completed with no cure time because no resin is involved in the process.
Through the manholes, the sleeve is inserted into the pipe and delivered to the damaged section. The sleeve is mechanically compressed against the inner pipe wall. Using an inflatable packer, the sleeve is then expanded and permanently locked into position.
QuickLock Point Repair Process :
At Cloud 9 Services we use a 3-step process to complete this trenchless pipe repair :
First - The lines are evaluated with our CCTV video pipe inspection camera to determine what's needed to resolve the problem and assess if the pipe meets our minimum engineering requirements to accept a new QuickLock point repair system.
Second - We thoroughly clean the lines using our hydro excavation techniques, which utilize a high-pressure water jetter to dislodge the gunk and debris located inside the pipe and then our vacuum truck sucks it up out of the way.
Third - We pull the QuickLock sleeve in place and inflate the packer to install the sleeve. The end result is the creation of a smooth and seamless "pipe within a pipe."
Benefits of QuickLock Point Repair :
The new pipe created by the QuickLock point repair has multiple benefits to the previous pipe, these are just a few :
Roots cannot penetrate the new "jointless" pipe.
Augments structural strength and integrity of deformed damaged pipe.
In most cases the process in done underground, which means landscape, hardscape, concrete, and floors remain undisturbed.
