PipeMedic™: The Future in Pipe Renovation

Strengthening of pipes with Carbon FRP

Pipes example

QuakeWrap™ can be used to strengthen PCCP concrete pipes where corrosion of reinforcement may have weakened the pipe. The crew can access the pipe through the manhole and carbon fabric is applied to the inner surface of the pipe, making the pipe waterproof and stronger.

Pipe

In the innovative patent-pending PipeMedic™ system developed by Professor Mo Ehsani (University of Arizona) the carbon fabrics of any design (up to a width of 60 inches) are saturated with the resin and run through a special press; the result is a solid laminate with a thickness that can be set from 0.02 to 0.08 inches.
