Pipe Lining Delivers

Mail delivery is a non-stop 24-hour operation. After decades of round the clock production, a mail sorting facility in Nevada was in need of some major repairs. The building’s outdated plumbing infrastructure was causing ongoing issues that were affecting the employees. With thousands of businesses and households relying on the postal service daily, shutting down for repairs was not an option.

When assessing the project, the contractor knew the sewer pipes would need a major overhaul. The pipe system is located under a concrete subfloor that is fitted with large mechanical equipment that sprawls throughout the 500,000 sq ft building. Replacing the pipes would be next to impossible without disrupting operations and would likely take months to complete. 

Pipe lining was the clear alternative to fix the pipe problems without disrupting the daily service of the post office. The mechanical contracting company knew they needed to call the pipe experts at Specialized Pipe Technologies to rehabilitate the aging system. They had previously worked with SPT on a similar project and trusted them to not only repair the pipes, but to complete the project in a timely and professional manner, so they could stay on track for the overall project timeline. 

The SPT crew conducted a thorough camera inspection of the entire pipe system, creating a map of the infrastructure with detailed assessment of the condition of the pipes. They planned a phased approach to tackle the project, starting with cleaning the pipes to remove years of sludge and debris that had built up on the inside. The technicians then lined the pipes with an epoxy resin, creating a structural “pipe within the pipe”, that will resist breaks or corrosion for many years to come. When the project was complete, SPT lined a total of 1400 linear ft of cast iron pipes in 4, 6, and 8 inch sizes. Like the mail, SPT completing the project on time and allowed the contracting company to complete the project of upgrading the facility to a modern day workplace.
