Searching no more for an Aqua Cure
A growing demand for custom CIPP pressure sewer and non-potable water applications has resulted in the launch of a new and innovative technology in the US.
Applied Felts has announced its latest innovation in CIPP liner technology, the AquaCure PSÂ®, a breakthrough product designed for force mains and other pressure pipe applications, including non-potable water.
AquaCure PS was developed to meet an industry-wide, growing need for applications that must withstand higher internal pressures while delivering the best possible performance.
President of Applied Felts Inc. Alex Johnson said the industry was changing at a rapid pace.
“System owners are always looking for solutions that help flow move more quickly and easily, pressure pipes have traditionally been the right solution. But like traditional gravity lines, force mains are not immune to cracks or leaks either,” he said.
“Up until now CIPP technology has not been able to adequately address the growing need for pressure pipe rehabilitation, so Applied Felts has been working diligently to develop our best possible solution for these types of applications. After years of research, we recently developed AquaCure PS, which combines glass reinforcement with traditional felt for maximum performance in force mains. We hope to soon also launch AquaCure PWÂ®, the Applied Felts solution specifically designed for potable water applications.”
While AquaCure PS is constructed specifically for municipal sewer applications, such as force mains, it can also be used for industrial purposes, including fire water lines and more.
The fiberglass reinforcement provides static, self-supporting properties and can be engineered to provide the pressure equivalent of a stand-alone AWWA Class IV Pipe.
