Core Filling the Pipes : When to be Used?
Core filling of pipes is typically used when a pipe has been damaged by corrosion or other types of wear and tear, and the pipe needs to be reinforced in order to prevent further damage and prolong its life. It is often used for underground pipes, such as those used for drainage and sewage, as well as for pipes that are exposed to harsh conditions, such as those in industrial environments.
Some of the most common situations where core filling of pipes is used include:
- Repairing pipes that have been damaged by corrosion or other types of wear and tear
- Reinforcing pipes that are exposed to heavy loads or high pressure
- Repairing pipes that have been damaged by ground movement or other types of external forces
- Improving the flow of liquids or gases through a pipe
- Waterproofing pipes that are exposed to water or other liquids
- Preventing leaks in pipes
- Strengthening pipes for structural reasons
It is important to note that core filling of pipes is typically performed by trained professionals and is usually done after the pipe has been properly cleaned and prepped. It is also important to note that core filling of pipes does not eliminate the need for pipe replacement, but it can extend the life of the pipe and postpone the replacement. In general core filling of pipes is used when the pipe needs to be reinforced and if a traditional replacement would be too disruptive, costly or impossible.
