Air Vortex® Process
We employ conditioned turbulent airflow at the inlet of the pipe system and a vacuum collector at the outlet. Aggregate scours the line and cleans it to the substrate. Subsequently, a polymer is injected, lining the entire pipe system evenly. Our process works through bends, connections, and verticals.
Vessels experience severe degradation of pipe systems due to abrasion, erosion, corrosion, and general wear and tear. We offer solutions from years of diverse engineering expertise to restore, preserve, and optimize pipe system lifecycles. Cleaned and lined pipes provide a non-corrosive barrier between the host pipe and medium flowing, significantly reducing friction and energy loss.
Our carbon footprint is a fraction of replacement. Masses of pipe are not wasted. No toxic chemicals are used. There is no manufacturing and logistics of new pipes and no need to dismantle the vessel to get to buried old pipe systems.
Pipe systems fill with debris, corrosion, and barnacles that decrease flow, leading to increased operating costs and wasted energy. Degrading pipe systems create leaks that can cause extensive damage to the environment. Corroded or clogged pipe systems are hazardous. All waste produced during our cleaning process is disposed of through our aggregate recovery unit and filtered through a HEPA filter.
