    • Tough terrain
    • Environmentally sensitive areas
 
  • Difficult to access
    • Smart Pipe® offers non-invasive pipeline replacement
    • Portable factory
    • No dig, trenchless technology
  • Aging
    • Pipelines have exceeded original design life
 
  • Aging
    • Smart Pipe® replacess old pipelines from the inside
  • Corrosion
    • Internal corrosion is major source of failure in pipelines
 
  • Corrosion
    • Smart Pipe®'s non-metallic solution eliminates corrosion
  • Having monitoring issues
    • Pipeline safety acts require pipeline monitoring
 
  • Having monitoring issues
    • Smart Pipe® has an embedded fiber optic monitoring solution - HPIR-View®
  • Long lengths of pipeline are in need of rehabilitation
    • Typical pipeline segments are 7 to 10 miles in length
 
  • Long lengths of pipeline are in need of rehabilitation
    • Smart Pipe® is designed for in-situ installations of up to several miles in one section without the need for joints
  • Minimal downtime for installed and manufactured
    • Downtime for pipeline replacement significantly impacts operations
 
  • Minimal downtime for installed and manufactured 
    • Fast installation (1 mile per day), minimal site preparation.
  • Only entry and exit needed to access existing pipelines
    • Urbanization affecting right-of-way
 
  • Only entry and exit needed to access existing pipelines
    • Minimal access required at start and end of pipeline section only.
  • Life-Time Maintenance cost
    • Pipeline cleaning and corrosion control issues are increasing
 
  • Life-Time Maintenance cost
    • Eliminates the costs of maintenance due to corrosion.

HPIR® (pr. "HYPER") CLASS PIPELINE SYSTEM

  • Is designed and manufactured in accordance with ASTM 2896-11 "Standard Specification for Reinforced Polyethylene Composite Pipe For The Transport Of Oil And Gas And Hazardous Liquids".
  • It is designed and developed in accordance with the API Recommended Practice 15S “Qualification of Spoolable Composite Pipe.”
  • It is simultaneously manufactured and installed (using trenchless technology) as a tight fit liner in up to several miles in one segment of an underground pipeline without any disruption of the surface areas covering the pipeline (except for a small opening at the entry and exit points of the pipeline section being lined)
  • Provides the operator of the pipeline with continuous monitoring and inspection features to assure safe operation of the line throughout the renewed operating life of the pipeline and to provide compliance with the regulations now emerging under the various Pipeline Safety Acts
