Cause of Pipe Internal Damage
The pipeline suffered internal corrosion due to being buried and exposed to humid conditions. The transport medium which is water also accelerated the rate which the pipe got damaged.
Pipe Restore Challenges Presented
The application site was located in a buried state. The process involved in fixing the pipeline had required the entire pipeline to be monitored for possible loss of pressure commonly associated with leaking. The decaying metal also became covered with soil which needed to be properly removed, and cleaned, then smoothen. An additional coating for the internal surface of the pipe was also applied to prevent it from affecting nearby areas.
