Imagine a chemical plant with a piece of processed sewer line installed in the 1940’s had failed. Now imagine the top of the pipe had become so thin from corrosion that it had collapsed and caved in creating a sinkhole (a collapse of the surface area). This has actually happened, and the company was faced with deciding what was the most efficient method for resolving the situation. Management realized a 50-foot section of pipe and two manholes needed to be quickly repaired. Had they chosen conventional means of intervention, the plant would have had to close. Fortunately, the company was able to continue operations because management chose to use a CIPP (Cured In Place Pipe) method to fix the problems.

Reasons Your Pipes Could Collapse
There are a variety of reasons your industrial pipes can collapse. Within every day use and the high demand placed on industrial pipes, they are more susceptible to issues which means that when they are not properly taken care of, they will become severely damaged. Common reasons your pipes could collapse include tree root invasion, misaligned, pipes, and weak pipe materials.
- Tree roots seeking water are drawn to sewer pipes and grow into the pipes through joints. They weaken the joint and cause wastewater to escape. This process eventually causes a belly which creates collapse.
- Offset or misaligned joints can also allow wastewater to escape from the pipe. This damage allows the pipe to leak more and more. This leads to erosion of soil around the pipe which leads to collapse.
- Weak materials like orangeburg pipe is made from compressed tar paper that will not withstand and support the needs of your industrial pipes. In addition, other weak pipe materials may include clay and terracotta.
Soil erosion, flooding, mold and mildew are also reasons your pipes could become severely damaged and eventually collapse all together.
