Rubber Lined Pipes: A Time-Tested Solution for Leak Prevention

Did you realize rubber lined pipes aren’t just used in industrial applications? It’s true they are very popular in systems that manufacture liquids and viscous fluids and those that use them in the manufacturing process, but the technology is so good at stabilizing a system and providing the strength you need to ensure it is sealed that it’s also started to be used as an alternative form of home water main repair. Of course, the materials used in each application are a bit different, as are the methods used for placing the lining, but the essential idea is the same.

Why Do Lined Pipes Work So Well?

It’s common sense why liners help so much, they create a seamless enclosure for the fluids in the system, one that doesn’t have the weaknesses present in metal or plastic pipelines with grommet-style seals and bolts. While those seals can work very well, they work even better as a second line of defense behind a tank lining that extends through the whole pipeline system, because it provides redundant protection against a failure in either material. That’s why this method has been in use for years across a variety of applications in both industry and residential construction.

Custom Systems for Storage, Delivery, and More

Whether you are looking to line a hopper or outfitting all the piping in a system so there is an end-to-end seal as materials are introduced in the manufacturing process, linings provide you with the versatility you need. Made from materials that are designed to be non-reactive, they prevent corrosion by keeping your pipes from being in direct contact with materials, and they also give you a bulwark against a blown seal. The result is less strain on the system, an easier maintenance cycle, and more confidence in the consistency of the process. That makes it easier to identify and correct quality control issues, which also makes it easier to innovate predictably as you refine your processes and create new ideas about what your company cann do with its equipment.
