Nuflow Technology used in India
Australian company Nuflow Technologies completed itsfirst application of Redline in India with new Licensee ITC Hotels. Since guest satisfaction is the number one priority to the hospitality industry, Licensee ITC Hotels chose to provide a non-invasive, non-destructive solution to rehabilitate pipe problems in India.
Nuflow’s Redline pipe technology is used to line and protect pressure pipes from corroding and developing pin hole leaks. Once the problem has been identified, pipes are blasted with a garnet to prepare them for the rehabilitation process. From existing access points, injections of Redline are moved through the entire pipe system using high pressure air. The end result is a barrier that prevents leaks and pipe corrosion.
The first job completed by ITC Hotels was the ITC Mughal, Agra. Hebbagilu Vinayaka, General Manager – Technical & EHS of ITC Hotels – said corroded water supply pipes have been a problem.
“The key issue is the galvanized water supply pipes are corroded, this is causing discoloration to the water, resulting in much distaste to our guests and damage to sanitary fixtures,” said Vinayaka.
The only alternative to Redline was to remove the existing pipes and replace them, which would cause significant damage to walls and floor coverings. In addition, rooms could not be occupied during a re-pipe, a significant revenue loss to the hotel.
The first application of Redline in India was nearly 1.5km epoxy installed in the 40mm down to 15mm galvanized hot and cold potable water lines, creating a thin barrier between the pipe and the water flowing through it. Nuflow Technologies and Licensee ITC Hotels resolved the problem with minimal disruption to hotel guests and no damage to the property.
