Electric Roller Bed

Electric Roller Bed Add On

Many of you requested an electric drive for our manual roller. For those of you who used other pinch calibration rollers and switched to our Quik Roller you know the precision the roller employs. Unlike many other rollers that drive only one roller and jams in the stationary roller during “wet out” the Quik Roller doesn’t jam due to the both rollers turning at the same rate. The dual drives allow us to add an electric motor with safety controls to allow a powered “wet out”.

And for those of you that own the Quik Calibration Roller there’s good news. You can retrofit the roller to the unit you own. We have developed a retrofit kit to make it a snap to convert your roller. The kit comes with all the necessary parts and instructions to make the conversion. We suggest that you use a roller table with the conversion and you can order the kit with or without the roller table in the event you already own the roller table.

For those of you not using a pinch roller let’s talk about why you may want one. The ASTM’s that cover the CIPP lining process require two things to be followed for “wet out”. They call out a vacuum impregnation process that insures that resin is filling the entire interior of the liner tube with resin leaving no air pockets. Air pockets left in a liner tube will eventually allows roots to grow through the material and into the sewer pipe. The cause of this was improper “wet out”. The second call out is calibrating the thickness of the tube. There is a very detailed thickness design formula that prescribes the design thickness for the “wetted out” tube. The only way to perform that precise thickness is to calibrate a thickness on the pinch roller set to that thickness. If you are using a linoleum roller with your tube laying on the sidewalk and think your getting an even thickness of calibrated tube, you are not. On a 3mm thick tube we advise setting the pinch roller to 7mm. That accounts for the 3mm tube folded flat (6mm) plus 1mm for the coating thickness to insure a finished 3mm liner.

Not an approved method for CIPP lateral lining “wet out”

Yes, I’ve heard the argument ‘we’ve been lining with a linoleum roller for years and have never had a problem’. Remember it only takes one problem to sink your ship. If you do have a problem, are hauled into court, and during testimony it’s found out that you didn’t follow the ASTM standard for CIPP lining, all fault it going to be directed to you, whether or not the actual problem was the “wet out” process.
