This will be an in-depth discussion covering the importance of integrated quality controls from the built-in system controls, to design, manufacturing, and construction controls.
Saltville, VA (PRWEB) October 07, 2013
Trenchless methods (e.g., UV CIPP lining) have become a preferred method for addressing aging pipe and culvert renewal with usage rates now exceeding direct-burial replacement. Despite such widespread use, specifiers have struggled with achieving consistent product quality with CIPP pipe and culvert liners. This presentation offers attendees an explanation of the integrated engineering controls that are available to ensure quality with UV CIPP liners, including proper management of field conditions to achieve a consistent compliance of the "as-built" with the "as-specified.”
Topics to be explored include: proper material selection, qualification, and design; pre-construction inspection of shipped and stored materials; construction practices and inspection; and post-construction inspection and documentation for asset commissioning. Additionally, the presentation will outline how to leverage controls to review and qualify CIPP lining products; specify and design CIPP liners; and manage and inspect CIPP construction projects. Finally, the presentation will cover how available engineering controls can assist project managers to more reliably avoid liner imperfections that can otherwise prevent specification compliance and interfere with expected life-cycle performance.
