Slip Lining in New Orleans

Slip Lining Services in New Orleans by LCS

Lining Coating Solutions (LCS) offers comprehensive slip lining services in New Orleans, providing a time-tested, trenchless rehabilitation method for aging, damaged, or corroded pipelines. This non-invasive technique is a cornerstone of our commitment to preserving the city’s infrastructure with minimal disruption to the community and environment. Slip lining involves the insertion of a new, smaller diameter pipe into an existing pipeline, effectively renewing the host pipe’s structural integrity and function with significantly reduced impact on the surrounding area.


The Slip Lining Process

Our slip lining process is designed to be efficient and effective, ensuring a smooth and swift rehabilitation of pipelines across various sectors in New Orleans, including municipal, industrial, and residential applications.

Initial Inspection and Cleaning

The process begins with a thorough inspection of the existing pipeline using advanced CCTV camera technology. This initial step allows our team to assess the pipe’s condition, identify any issues, and determine the feasibility of slip lining. Following the inspection, the pipeline is cleaned to remove debris, residues, and obstructions, ensuring a clear path for the insertion of the new liner.

Liner Selection and Preparation

Based on the inspection findings, a suitable liner material is selected. Common materials include High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Fiberglass Reinforced Pipe (FRP), known for their durability, chemical resistance, and smooth flow characteristics. The liner is custom-fabricated to match the internal diameter and length of the existing pipe, ensuring a precise fit.

Insertion and Positioning

The new liner is carefully inserted into the host pipe, typically using a winch or by pushing. Our team ensures that the liner is correctly positioned to cover the entire section requiring rehabilitation. For longer sections or more complex configurations, multiple liner sections may be joined together.

Grouting and Sealing

Once the liner is in place, the annular space between the new liner and the existing pipe is filled with grout. This step stabilizes the liner, compensates for the size difference, and ensures a watertight seal. The grout also helps to distribute loads and pressures evenly, enhancing the structural integrity of the rehabilitated pipeline.

Final Inspection

A post-installation inspection is conducted to verify the quality of the slip lining work, ensuring that the liner is properly positioned, the annular space is adequately filled, and the pipeline is ready for return to service.

Advantages of LCS Slip Lining in New Orleans

  • Minimal Disruption: Slip lining is a trenchless method, meaning the work is carried out with little to no excavation required. This approach is particularly beneficial in densely populated or environmentally sensitive areas of New Orleans, where traditional excavation could cause significant disruption and damage.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: By avoiding the need for extensive excavation and surface restoration, slip lining offers a cost-effective alternative to pipe replacement, reducing both direct and indirect costs associated with pipeline rehabilitation projects.
  • Extended Pipeline Life: The materials used in slip lining, such as HDPE and FRP, offer excellent resistance to corrosion, abrasion, and chemical attack, significantly extending the life expectancy of the existing pipeline.
  • Versatility: Slip lining can be applied to a wide range of pipeline materials and configurations, making it a versatile solution for the varied infrastructure found throughout New Orleans, from historic neighborhoods to modern commercial districts.
