The CuraFlo Spincast System rehabilitates water, drain line and industrial process pipes ranging from 3″ to 36″.
Our system restores and protects pipes of all types and conditions by centrifugally casting 1 to 5+ millimeters of solvent-free, protective epoxy coating onto the interior surface of the pipe.
Large Pipe Restoration
Our process removes even the worst corrosion and tuberculation and protects against future corrosion and buildup without the cost and disruption of excavation and replacement. CuraFlo’s proprietary Spincast System has been used to line more than 360,000 feet of pipe throughout North America over the past 10 years.
Restore Water Quality – Save Time and Money
The CuraFlo Spincast System offers significant advantages over traditional dig and replace, slip lining and cement mortar lining. Our proven in situ pipe rehabilitation technology restores deteriorated pipes in a fraction of the time and for significantly less cost and disruption than it takes to replace pipe.

Spincast Installation Process
Access the Pipe
Access points are made at fittings (valves, tees, fires, hydrants, bends etc.) in conformance with all local, state and OSHA safety requirements.
Isolate the Pipe
The piping system is isolated by closing the appropriate isolating valves within the system to shut off water to the designated pipe.
Clean the Pipe
Pipe sections or fittings are removed from each access point. The internal surface is then cleaned using one of several cleaning methods.
Pre Lining Inspection
Closed-circuit television is used to inspect the pipes, checking for cleanliness and identifying any potential problems.
A specialized rig pulls a plural-component hose through the pipe while centrifugally applying the epxoxy coating.
Following the required cure time for the epoxy lining the pipe is again inspected using a CCTV system.
After the lining has been inspected, the pipe can be disinfected and flushed.
Return to Service
Pipe are reconnected and water service is returned.
