Safe Rehabilitation of Drinking Water Lines

Mandals Aquaman L & M is designed for the effective rehabilitation of drinking water lines. The liner is drinking water approved, with good hydrolysis and microbiological resistance,  and is designed to have a lifespan of more than 50 years.

A Smarter Way

Countries throughout the world suffer from contamination and loss of drinking water due to old pipes leaking and deteriorating. With an average of 26% water loss in Europe and North America in 2020, this is a rising problem that needs to be addressed. In the US alone, it is said that approximately every two minutes, a water main breaks, and the potential water loss is estimated to be six billion gallons annually. We have developed Mandals Aquaman L & M specifically to address this problem and provide an easy-to-handle, effective solution to rehabilitate these pipes.

Explore Mandals Aquaman L & M

Mandals Aquaman L & M offers a long-lasting, cost-effective, high-quality stand-alone solution to rehabilitating leaking pipes.

Mandals Aquaman L & M

With Mandals Aquaman L & M we offer a more sustainable solution for the rehabilitation of old pipelines with minimal disruption to traffic, pedestrians, and the environment in general, with an improved CO2 footprint and HSE performance. The liner is tested and approved for use with potable water, and it is flexible in terms of the diameter variation of the host pipe, effortlessly passing sharp bends even at long section lengths.

Production and Design

Mandals Aquaman L & M is a semi-structural, stand-alone liner that will ensure continual fluid supply even if the host pipe should break. In other words, the liner will handle all the pressure, while the pipe structure will help it not collapse.

The “extrusion through the weave” production technology gives excellent bonding between the cover and lining and firmly encapsulates the circular woven polyester reinforcement.

It consists of a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) with excellent wear & tear properties, outstanding hydrolysis resistance, and resistance against microbiological attack.

The liner is leak-proof, tested, packed, and delivered in a “U” -shape.

Installation Process

Before installation, a regular cleaning procedure is required for the host pipe and the condition is controlled by CCTV inspection.

The liner is pulled through the host pipe using a wire winch, e.g. and can be installed in pipelines with bends and pipe diameter variations. The number of bends and sharpness (bend angle and R/D – ratio) will impact the installation’s maximum section lengths.

No steaming or other means of curing is required. Operating at maximum working pressure, the outer diameter of the liner will be about 10mm less than the inner diameter of the rehabilitated pipe.

Product Specifications

Primary Uses & Applications

  • Safe trenchless rehabilitation of drinking water lines

Color Options

  • Blue (standard)

Lengths and Diameters – Aquaman L

We offer a range of diameters and lengths for this liner, depending on the nominal pipe diameter. The diameters range from DN25mm to DN350mm.

    • DN25-DN150 can be delivered in lengths up to 600m
    • DN200-DN350 can be delivered in lengths up to 400m

Lengths and Diameters – Aquaman M

We offer a range of diameters and lengths for this liner, depending on the nominal pipe diameter. The diameters range from DN150mm to DN350mm.

    • DN150-DN350 can be delivered in lengths up to 400m

Section lengths will depend on

  • Hose Diameter: Large dim = > Shorter lengths. Secondly, higher friction and drum space.
  • Number of bends: More bend => Higher friction => Higher pull-force.
  • Bend angle and R/D ratio: Sharp bends (critical low R/D ratio) => Higher friction and greater risk of damage to the hose during Pull-in. Can be dampened with good lubrication (silicone oil/cooking oil etc) on the hose. Increased risk of “kinking” of the hose within the bend and reduced flow.

Operating Temperature

The maximum recommended operating temperature is +23°C (73°F)

Lifetime Expectancy

The estimated Service lifetime will depend on several factors. A proper pre-cleaning of the host pipe, CCTV inspection, and checking for sharp spikes is vital.

pH Range

The drinking water is normally stabilized as to chemical reactivity and microorganisms contents. The recommended pH range is 4-9.

Valid Certificates

Mandals Aquaman L is certified for drinking water by a number of international organizations. Certifications for Mandals Aquaman M is pending.
