Over time, all drain systems develop problems, begin to fail and require attention. Replacing those pipes comes with the need to dig through floors and foundations or to cut through walls to access the pipes, which can be very time-consuming, costly and disruptive. However, this can be avoided with the patented NuFlow process, an in-situ trenchless solution for pipe rehabilitation both underground and in buildings.
Project: Retrofit a failing sanitary sewer system under a brewery.
Customer: Anheuser-Busch, who produces the two best-selling beers in the world, Budweiser and Bud Light, and operates 12 breweries in the United States.
Site: Anheuser-Busch Williamsburg Brewery in Virginia, a 144-acre site with a 1,256,000 square foot floor area that ships approximately 250 truck loads per day.
System: 200 feet of 8″ cast iron sanitary sewer line located deep underneath the brewery.
Situation: The sanitary sewer system under the facility was failing and needed to be replaced without disruption to the brewery’s production and operations.
Solution: NuFlow worked alongside general contractor ESGI to rehabilitate 200 feet of the sanitary sewer system without disruption to the brewery operations. ESGI installed new manholes while NuFlow completed the structural lining of the 8″ line.
NuFlow rehabilitated the pipes with the patented NuDrain process by pulling a seamless structural liner into place. The solution saved the customer from the need to dig up 200 feet of pipe, saving valuable time and money.
Aged and failing pipe systems are common in commercial, industrial, and residential buildings. Whether you are experiencing problems now or are interested in preventing the inevitable failure of your plumbing system, NuFlow is available to restore your peace of mind.
The patented NuFlow process avoids the need to dig or rip out walls to retrofit your pipes. With multiple piping solutions we can rehabilitate any pipe, anywhere.
