AOC has collaborated with Clean Water Works (CWW), an Ottawa, Canada based leader in pipeline rehabilitation, to restore the sewage pipes serving an automobile factory in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
AOC explain that polyester felt tubing saturated with its Vipel L010-PPA-33 vinyl ester resin, were used by CWW to install 2,100 feet of cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP), improving the corrosion resistance and durability of the factory’s sewage infrastructure.
AOC says it delivered more than 175,000 pounds of resin from its Ontario plant for three installations between July 9 and July 15. The first installation was 90 feet long with a 54-inch diameter and required 12,000 pounds of resin. The second was 570 feet long with a 42-inch diameter and used 26,200 pounds of resin. The third was 1,440 feet long with a 54/60-inch transitional tube and used 138,000 pounds of resin.
“Due to CWW’s dedication to the project and our supplier’s great service,” says Sandy Campbell, Rehabilitation Manager at CWW, “we were completed and off site by July 19—two days ahead of schedule.”
