Classification and characteristics of techniques for renovation, repair and replacement of drains and sewers

Status : Current   Published : November 2018



What is this standard about?

This European Standard specifies a system for the classification of trenchless techniques for renovation, repair and replacement on the same line of drains and sewers outside buildings, operated under gravity or pressure, including pipes, connections and manholes. It defines and describes families of techniques and their different generic methods and materials used.

This European Standard does not apply for replacement by open trenching according to EN 1610 and trenchless construction and testing of drains and sewers as new construction off-the-line of the existing drain or sewer according to EN 12889.

This European Standard does not apply for the specification of requirements for specific products.

For each technique family it lists relevant existing standards, materials and applications and outlines characteristics including installation aspects, structural and hydraulic capabilities and site impact.

This standard does not apply to any work required on the existing pipe prior to renovation, repair or replacement.

This European Standard provides information needed to determine viable options and for identification of the optimal technique with regard to a given set of renovation, repair or replacement objectives.

NOTE It is the responsibility of the designer to choose and design the renovation, replacement and repair systems.

It does not specify the calculation methods to determine, for each viable technique, the required amount of material needed to secure the desired performance of the pipeline to be rehabilitated.
