NYSEARCH & Cornell University tested the longevity and extreme capabilities of
cured-in-place lined pipe

NYSEARCH/Northeast Gas Association (NGA) completed a two-year CIPL research and development project in 2015 with support from National Grid, PECO Energy, Public Service Electric and Gas and Con Edison that included funding support from PHMSA. The project was in collaboration with Cornell’s independent pipeline infrastructure experts.

“The body of CIPL installations, research and performance history, when examined and compared to traditional pipeline replacement methods, demonstrate that CIPL can provide substantial pipeline renewal and is a viable option to conventional replacement methods for cast-iron and steel distribution pipelines.”
