D&W APS pioneers SpeedyLight+ UV LED curing
Danaher & Walsh APS is the first company in the UK to acquire the revolutionary SpeedyLight+ UV LED pipeline curing system as part of a £250,000 investment in new technologies.
The high-tech system, produced by Spanish robotic engineering specialists Sewertronics, enables curing of CIPP (cured-in-place-pipe) liners in a fraction of the time of other available methods. The SpinLight rotating curing head enables curing speeds of up to one metre per minute.
The portability of the system enables it to be used almost anywhere. The UV LED curing method is intrinsically safer than other methods because it dispenses with the need for steam or hot water. The system is ultra-efficient, using no more power than a domestic toaster. The curing resin used is free of both styrenes and amine
The system can even travel round bends of up to 90°. D&W APS' SpeedyLight+ system can cure up to 70m of pipe in one go, and can even be used in pressurised pipes. The curing head features an integrated wide-angle camera, to enable the operator to view the pipe as it cures.
The system has been supplied by D&W APS' supply partner RSM Lining, the exclusive UK distributor for Sewertonics, who are exhibiting SpeedyLight+ at the No-Dig Live show this week.
Speaking about acquiring the new system, APS Contracts Manager Paul Cleaver said: "We are committed to being at the forefront of introducing the latest technology in trenchless pipeline rehabilitation.
"This system is a giant leap in terms of speed, safety, portability and environmental care."
