In-Building Gas Line Rehabilitation
NuFlow 945 is a break-through technology designed to significantly extend the service life of in-building gas pipes without the cost or destruction of pipe replacement. NuFlow 945 enables gas system infrastructure to be inspected, cleaned, and sealed with an internal barrier coating to protect against existing leaks and to mitigate further corrosion.
NuFlow 945 is the only plumbing code listed solution (ICC LC1045, PMG-1528) available for proper maintenance and extended service life of in-building gas pipes.
For years, in-building gas systems have been plagued by leaks because of the breakdown of PTFE paste or pipe sealant used on the pipe threads joining the lengths and connections of the system. Gas pipe replacement is not only costly, but it can be disruptive to tenants and the daily usage of the building.
NuFlow's NuFlow 945 enables in-building gas pipes to be inspected, cleaned, sealed, and barrier coated to eliminate leaks and to mitigate deterioration, thus significantly extending the service life of a building's gas pipe system. In the process, costly and disruptive pipe replacement by exhumation can be delayed by multiple decades. This can be particularly beneficial for greatly limiting disruption of building use as well as avoiding destruction and costly repair of the historical character of older buildings.
Aging gas pipes pose an increasing health and safety risk to building occupants, especially in our older urban centers. Building evacuations and building losses from gas pipe leaks are routinely being reported in the news. Prior to NuFlow 945, there has been no code listed method for property owners and building maintenance managers to extend the service life of building gas pipes.
Key Benefits of NuFlow 945
NuFlow 945 is the only plumbing code listed solution (ICC LC1045) available for proper maintenance and extended service life of in-building gas pipes.
NuFlow 945 effectively and efficiently seals existing pinhole leaks and provides a thorough barrier coating to arrest pipe deterioration and greatly extend the service life of in-building gas pipes.
Detailed on-site inspection
Detailed on-site inspection and testing of the in-building gas pipes confirm the condition of the host pipe and applicability for use prior to installation of the barrier coating.
NuFlow's Whirlwind Technology
NuFlow's Whirlwind Technology enables both thorough remote cleaning of in-building gas pipes and then complete remote barrier coating to greatly limit the disruption required for gas pipe rehabilitation
Proper distribution and curing of the barrier coating and the resulting gas pipe leak tightness are verified prior to return to service.
NuFlow is the world leader for in-building pipe renewal, and NuFlow 945 brings NuFlow's unmatched experience and expertise to less disruptively resolve in-building gas pipe deterioration and pin-hole leak issues.
Property owners, occupants, and building maintenance managers greatly benefit from the reduced site operations disruption and the reduced building surface restoration costs that come with extending the service life of the existing in-building gas pipes.
