Pipe Rehabilitation

Experienced and Dependable

CIPP
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.

Potable water
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.

Sewer
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.

SIPP
Spray-in-Place Pipe (SIPP) lining systems use epoxies and polymers to cost-effectively and minimally invasively rehabilitate aging pipelines. Michels technicians are skilled at applying a variety of products, allowing us to provide precisely the right solution for our customers’ challenges. SIPP is an effective method for projects that range from preventing breaks and restoring structural integrity to repairing corrosion to creating a new, fully structural pipe-within-a-pipe.

Epoxy
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.

Cement
Michels applies cementitious liners to extend the lives of manholes by restoring structural integrity, stopping inflow and infiltration (I/I), and increasing corrosion resistance.

Geopolymer
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.
