The 4″ and 6″ bendy carriers are used to install CIPP sectional liners on bends in laterals. The central portion of the bladder area will expand freely in the radius of the bend without creating any kinks (Lining materials must be compatible for lining bends). Carriers are offered with the optional capability to insert a 3/8″ O.D. push rod through the carrier, thereby pushing the carrier from the nose rather than the back side. Straight carriers are also available.
The central portion of the rubber sleeve is built to mold the pipe shape. The liner installed is applied against the pipe wall on its entire length. The installation result could be wrinkle free if the material used is built for this application. An eye bolt at each end of the carrier allows to pull the liner in place.
The feed-thru push rod option is available for 4”, 5” and 6″ models (push rod not included). This allows the operator to push the carrier by the nose, making it easier to pass through the bends, reducing the risk of creating wrinkles while bringing the impregnated sleeve in place.
The standard length of 54″ gives a contact length of 48″ with the pipe wall. Available up to 6.5′ long.
