The EN ISO11295 family of pipeline rehabilitation standards, Muscat

About this event

During the lifetime of a pipeline the point is reached where the cost of water loss, leakage management, maintenance and repair works, together with the poor service to the customer justifies its replacement or rehabilitation. Trenchless rehabilitation techniques can have a lower cost and cause substantially less disruption to existing assets and the general population than conventional 'open cut' techniques.

As trenchless technology has developed and increased in use, so has the use of polyethylene pipes in applications such as slip lining, close fit lining and pipe bursting. A large number of pipeline renovation and replacement techniques now use polyethylene as their principal pipe material and the techniques have been developed to the point where they have been used to rehabilitate pipelines of up to 1,400mm internal diameter.

The presentation will give an introduction to the different methods by which pipelines can be rehabilitated using polyethylene (PE) pipes and liners, discuss the benefits of using a PE100-RC material and explain how Engineers and other technical staff can use the standard EN ISO 11295 to help identify and specify the most appropriate technique for their particular situation.

It will also introduce the recent update to the PE100+ Association's website which now includes a No-Dig Technical Guide.
