Nuflow Case Studies
ISSUE: The steel box section cable conduits had begun to break down due to rust corrosion from Sea Water.
CONTRACT: Utilising Nuflow’s Blueline technology, Wigg Plumbing was able to install 2 x 6.8 lineal metre liners, allowing the conduits structural integrity to be re-stored without having to be replaced. The steel has continued to rust away while the Nuflow liners stay intact.
ALTERNATIVES: The alternative would have been to rip up the steel floor of the boat to allow access to the pipework, causing disruption & produce delays to the company & their clients.
ISSUE: A brand new unit was experiencing constant blockages.
CONTRACT: After a drain camera investigation was carried out we found that a section of the drain was missing from construction of the footing. A Blueline patch liner was installed to cover the large hole & restore the pipes structural integrity.
ALTERNATIVES: The client would have had to excavate the pipe through the thick concrete slab, causing possible structural damage to the footing.
Nilsen Pty Ltd
ISSUE: Water was entering the electrical conduit feeding the Royal Darwin Hospitals Oncology unit MRI Machine.
CONTRACT: Utilising Nuflows Blueline technology we were able to install 4 x 100mm liners, each 9 metres long covering all the joins in the conduit stopping any further water entering.
ALTERNATIVES: No economically viable alternatives were available so the appropriate work was carried out in a timely manner to ensure work was not interrupted.
ISSUE: 100mm drainage line was damaged during exaction for the concrete slab footing and going unnoticed until tenants had moved in.
CONTRACT: Utilising Nuflows Blueline Technology we were able to Reline over the hole in the pipe stopping the ground from washing away and re-structuring the oval pipe back to its original round shape.
ALTERNATIVES: Lift up tiles in dining room, jackhammer a hole in the dining room floor, excavate the exposed aggregate veranda & tunnel underneath the footing, cut damaged section of pipe out a connect new.
ISSUE: Poor installation of concrete stormwater pipes resulted in misaligned joins & holes in the pipes from breaking off the lifting lugs.
CONTRACT: Utilising Nuflows Blueline Technology we were able to install 80, 1m patch liners, ranging from 300mm to 525mm restoring the drains structural integrity.
ALTERNATIVES: Excavating the newly laid roads and relaying the storm water pipes. All alternatives were un-economical.
ISSUE: Poor installation of the joint of the drainage pipe resulting in dirt washing into storm water causing the road to subside. The pipe had become misaligned & would eventually collapse.
CONTRACT: Utilising Nuflows Blueline Technology we were able to install a 600mm patch liner covering the join, restoring the structural integrity & securing the join in place.
ALTERNATIVES: The alternative would have been to dig up the drain which was located beside a road, so the outcome made a 2-3 day job take only 1 day.
