Experienced and Dependable
Michels uses Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) lining systems on maintenance and emergency projects for sewer mains, water mains and pressure pipes. Our liners are installed by air and water inversion, or can be pulled into place. Curing is done by water, steam and ultraviolet light. Each liner is designed and manufactured to the exact specifications of the owner and manufacturer in diameters from 6 to 100 inches. Our regional wet-out facilities ensure our ability to serve customers from coast to coast.
Michels provides safe, convenient and trenchless options for rehabilitating and repairing distribution and transmission infrastructure for potable water. Our quick, clean water main rehabilitation process complies with NSF-61 standards; has lower economic and social impacts; and can be used on all sizes and types of pressure pipe.
CIPP lining systems allow trenchless rehabilitation of deteriorating sanitary and storm sewer pipes by creating a new, fully structural pipe within the host pipe. Michels has significant experience using this quick, convenient method to repair defects, restore pipe integrity, and eliminate inflow and infiltration (I/I) in even the most challenging conditions.
Spray-in-Place Pipe (SIPP) lining systems use Cement Mortar, Epoxies, and Polyureas to efficiently rehabilitate aging pipelines with minimal excavations. Michels technicians are skilled in applying these products which allow us to provide the appropriate technology for our customer’s particular needs. SIPP materials are designed to improve drinking water quality, hydraulic characteristics and prevent further internal pipeline degradation.
Michels uses specialized equipment to completely reline pipes with an impenetrable epoxy. Epoxy lining systems are particularly effective at addressing immediate challenges and easing future maintenance on small diameter potable water pipelines.
Michels applies cementitious liners to extend the lives of manholes by restoring structural integrity, stopping inflow and infiltration (I/I), and increasing corrosion resistance.
Michels uses GeoSpray, a fiber-reinforced geopolymer mortar, to rehabilitate large-diameter storm and sanitary pipes, manholes and other infrastructure of all shapes, bends, curves and angles. The result is a fully structural pipe that is quickly installed and cured without any digging.
