1.1 This guide offers an organized collection of information or a series of options and procedures for the vacuum impregnation of 4 to 108 in (100 to 2700 mm) diameter cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) utilizing thermosetting resins. Temporary vacuum impregnation facilities set up at the jobsite (on site or over-the-hole wet outs) are also covered under this standard. Once resin saturation is complete, the wet out liner is then used to rehabilitate existing gravity flow or pressure pipelines, process piping, electrical conduits or ventilation systems. 1.2 This document cannot replace education or experience and should be used in conjunction with professional judgment.
