ASTT SIG to establish pressure pipe lining matrix


The ASTT Pipe Lining special interest group (SIG) is developing an Options Matrix guideline to determine what lining technologies, techniques and materials are suitable for asset owners.

The matrix is intended to help asset owners who are seeking renewal of their pressure assets, through lining, determine what may be suitable for their needs.

The SIG has worked with a number of clients and asset owners to understand what is important and to assist in shortlisting of options and decision making.

The matrix is not intended as a design specification. It is expected to work as a guide to help clients and asset owners understand what options may be appropriate for their needs.

Further detailed designs, Due Diligence and other considerations can then be undertaken on a shortlist of options.

Now, the SIG requires details of various pressure pipelining technologies, techniques, materials in the Australasian marketplace to populate the matrix.

The SIG already has input from two industry leading providers but is aware there are other options in the marketplace and wishes to hear from those suppliers and installers.

The more options and details can be provided, the greater the value of the matrix to asset owners and clients, which will lead to a growing and successful industry for all parties.

If you wish to ensure your particular technology, technique, material is included in the Options Matrix guideline, please contact the SIG chair, NZ Councilor, Blair Telfer at
