Redline Technology

Redline Technology

 

Redline technology is a simple but highly effective cured-in-place pipe restoration system that completely coats the inside of your copper or galvanised pipes.

Certified safe for drinking water, Redline is most commonly utilised to coat water systems. Redline has many other applications including, fire suppression systems, chiller and heating lines. The process prevents future leaks while it protects you from lead and other and other contaminates leached from your piping into your water.

Redline is an epoxy coating that is used for the restoration of plumbing, and mechanical systems. It is a non-invasive process that uses epoxy to coat the inside walls of pipes without destruction to interior or exterior surfaces of building structures, hardscape, or landscape.

As a non-invasive pipe rehabilitation process, Redline can be used not only as a long-term solution to prevent corrosion and pin-hole leaks, but as a preventative tool to preserve the life of existing piping systems.

Redline is suitable for use in host pipes which are designed to hold pressure, from hot and cold drinking water lines to air and water systems, heating and cooling lines. Redline is designed to rehabilitate pipes consisting of materials including metal, iron and steel. We can Redline 1 to 1000 metres.

Flowwise is proud to offer Redline as a potable pipe lining technology. This simple but highly effective cured in-place pipe restoration system completely coats the inside of your copper or galvanised pipe. The process prevents future leaks and protects your water from lead and other contaminates leached from your piping.

Pipes with a nominal bore reduced to as little as 20 per cent, can be cleaned back out to nearly its full potential, then coated to reinstate its integrity, extending the life of your asset exponentially.

Redline has been used successfully in a variety of applications including hospitals, high rise apartments, factories, fire suppression systems and domestic homes.

What are the benefits?

  • safe and durable
  • cost effective
  • minimal downtime compared to re-piping
  • minimal disruption and no occupant displacement
  • versatility in applications
  • prevents future pin hole leaks and corrosion.

How does the Redline process work?

To prepare the pipe system for Redline, the pipes are blasted with garnet until the pipe is clear of any corrosion. This is collected and disposed of according to Flowwise’s environmental policy.

Once this has been completed, epoxy is blown into cleaned pipes, forming a safe, evenly coated permanent barrier between pipe walls and the product in the pipe. This prevents future corrosion and pinhole leaks forming.

The cause of your pressure pipe problem is identified through water pressure tests and water flow tests. Once this is completed the pipe system is traced.

On completion the pipes are again pressure tested to ensure the problem has been solved.

Specifications

  • pipe diameter ranges from 1/2 inch to 10 inches, with larger custom sizes available
  • in pressurised pipe systems, the epoxy lining withstands the psi rate of the host pipe
  • will tolerate and negotiate multiple 45 and 90 degree bends.
For sewerage and stormwater systems, Flowwise uses Blueline technology, designed to repair pipes under surfaces that you don’t want to destroy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I pick a no-dig solution?

The benefits are all listed above, but if that has not convinced you, then it might be worth mentioning the risks of needlessly digging to fix the pipes. The surrounding area becomes a bit of an eyesore for an extended period, and there is always a chance that their machinery might burst a pipe and cause worse damage.

Is there a loss of flow after the pipe is fixed?

As the relining works by entering the pipe itself, it may be that the flow is reduced slightly, but this is how relining would work, whether it involves excavating or not. The benefits of repairing the pipe without a full replacement will massively outweigh only a small decrease in water flow.

How much does the lining cost?

This will depend on the complexity of the work, such as the amount of lining required and the number of metres that have to be repaired, but we charge a flat fee every hour to make sure our services stay affordable to all.
