New system measures CIPP liner cure temperatures

Staff report

Using patented technology, the new VeriCureâ„¢ system from Pipeline Renewal Technologies monitors cure temperature continuously along the full length of a cured-in-place pipe liner during installation. This information helps ensure storm and sewer lines are rehabilitated to specification, and perform as intended.

Designed to distinguish even small thermal variances, the system measures average temperature in successive 1.5-foot zones—a spatial resolution at least seven times that of alternative technologies. And with measurement probes costing less than a dollar per foot, VeriCure makes it affordable to prevent costly lifts, delamination, over-tensioning and environmental contamination.

The system indicates exactly when the liner cure goes exothermic, and when cure and cool-down are complete. This means no wasting fuel and crew time overcooking the liner, and no risk of failure due to undercooked midpoints. The savings more than offsets the cost of the technology, and the information gathered provides valuable insurance against costly warranty repairs down the road.
