UV Drain Lining

Here at Subscan UDS we are always striving to take full advantage of the latest developments in drain rehabilitation and reinforcement and have recently invested in the latest ultraviolet (UV) lining equipment, which is more environmentally friendly and cost effective than other forms of CIPP lining.

With UV lining, our qualified engineers can fix damaged sewers and partially collapsed drains without the need to excavate or replace large sections of underground pipe work.

UV lining is similar to other methods of conventional cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) relining.  The process involves inserting a liner inside of the existing damaged sewer or drain, and once in place, is inflated with compressed air. Using a UV Light with built-in CCTV the liner is then inspected for folds or wrinkles before the hardening process. Once checked the UV light is then applied to harden the liner.  This creates a pipe within a pipe restoring the structural integrity of the pipe.

• The Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) liner is extremely durable and long lasting (up to 70 years).  Providing a much longer design life than other methods.  It is also ten times stronger than conventional CIPP lining.

• There is no need for deep excavations, or replacement of the damaged outer pipe as the GRP creates a pipe within a pipe.

• Environmentally friendly UV lining also avoids any risk of environmental pollution.  There is no disposal of styrene contaminated water so it can be used safely in rural areas, as well as built-up areas.

• UV lining equipment can be used in smaller, more awkward locations due to the portability of the equipment required.

• Minimises pipe diameter reduction due to the reduced liner thickness.

A Word from our Director

“This is the latest in a long line of investments we have made at Subscan.  This acquisition allows us to improve the already wide ranging services we offer and will have a noticeable effect for our clients.”

Why Choose UV Lining?

The UV lining process is the fastest and most cost-effective way to repair a partially collapsed or damaged pipeline. Unlike most CIPP liners, UV technology uses ultra-violet light rather than hot water.  This means there is no need for on-site boilers, making the installation much easier, safer, and quicker.  You can also service up to 5 feet of piping per minute depending on the thickness of the required liner.
