October 24, 2016 - SUEZ and Belco Pipe Restoration Agreement

SUEZ (formerly Utility Service Co.) and Belco Pipe Restoration today announced an agreement in principle that provides the basis for ongoing cooperation and collaboration regarding the supply of structural Spray-in-Place Pipe Rehabilitation Services throughout the United States.

Engineered by Belco, the new structural Spray-in-Place Pipeline rehabilitation process is a trenchless, efficient and long-lasting solution for the restoration of aging underground piping systems. This versatile solution works on pipes ranging from 1 ¼ inches to 72 inches in diameter, both vertical and horizontal. The innovative technology uses a computer-controlled, advanced robotic spray application rig to apply an internal epoxy pipe lining in-situ.

The NSF 61-approved, 100%-solids epoxy coating bonds with the pipe, thus preventing and sealing cracks, and it moves with the structure thanks to its high level of elasticity, abating leaks caused by settling. Once cured, it creates a structural seal inside the pipe which restores the pipeline to its original design parameters, prevents future leaks and protects against contaminants leaching into the system.

“The Spray-in-Place Pipe process helps extend the service life of aging piping systems while minimizing maintenance costs as well as down-time,” explained Miguel Molina, Vice President, Technology Services at SUEZ. “It is a great addition to our portfolio of sustainable solutions,” he said.

SUEZ presented the new service offering at the recent WEFTEC® Technical Exhibition and Conference in New Orleans, gathering a lot of attention from several water and wastewater utilities. The new Spray-in-place Pipe process is the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of rehabilitation technologies and services which includes one-of-a-kind, maintenance programs for wells, tanks and concrete assets, filters and meters.
