Cipp tube

MTube® CIPP

We construct our tubes for optimal installation and long-term performance. During the manufacturing process, MTube® undergoes more than 25 stringent quality checks for weight, thickness, density, strength and elongation — resulting in a product with superior uniformity.

Backed by more than 40 years of industry expertise, we provide our customers with operational and technical support, including field assistance and submittal data.

MTube® CIPP Process

Since 1971, CIPP has been used to rehabilitate over 25,000 miles of pipelines worldwide. A structural solution, MTube® is a resin-saturated felt tube that is typically inserted into an existing wastewater pipeline through manholes.

Once it is in place, it is cured using hot water or steam. Service laterals can be reinstated internally using a robotic cutter. Compared to open trench replacement methods, MTube® is a significantly less intrusive and more cost-effective solution for installing a new pipe with a 100-year design life.

Step 1: A resin-saturated, coated felt tube is inverted or pulled into a damaged pipe.

Step 2: Hot water or steam is used to cure the resin and form a tight-fitting, jointless and corrosion resistant pipe.

Step 3: Service laterals are typically restored internally with robotically controlled cutting devices and the rehabilitated pipe is inspected by closed-circuit TV.

MTube® is available in a wide variety of lengths and can be installed in circular, egg, square, box or “horse shoe” shapes. Diameter changes and customization are also available upon request.
