Nu Flow Has Lined All of the Navy’s Aircraft Carriers
Project: Rehabilitate the failing collection, hold and transfer (CHT) systems in the United States Navy’s fleet of aircraft carriers. U.S. Navy Aircraft Carriers and Dates: USS America, November 1988 USS Kennedy, February 1989 USS Carl Vinson, April 1989, Aug. 1995, May 2000 USS Forrestal, September 1989 USS Eisenhower, Nov. 1989, April 1996, March 2003 USS Ranger, January 1990 USS Roosevelt, March 1990, June 2000 USS Saratoga, May 1990 USS America, August 1990 USS Nimitz, Sept. 1990, March 1992, Nov. 1999 USS Carl Vinson, April 1992 USS Enterprise, May 1992 USS Abraham Lincoln, January 1993 USS Chesapeake, April 1993 USS George Washington, April 1993 USS Independence, July 1993 USS Stennis, May 1994, October 1996 USS Kitty Hawk, May 1995 USS Kennedy, July 1995, March 1998 USS Truman, June 1996, July 1997 USS Cleveland, August 1997 USS Juneau, October 1998 USS Coronado, October 1998 USS Denver, November 1998 USS Tarawa, May 1999 USS Dubuque, January 2000 USS Reagan, April 2001

As a result of their faith in our solutions, there is a naval standard for coating the pipe systems that is based on our pipe lining technology.

System: The copper-nickel CHT system, which is the waste drain system for the vessels, is located throughout the aircraft carriers. The pipe lines ranged from 4" to 6" in width and averaged 1,200 feet in length. Situation: The CHT system has a very corrosive environment because it has waste and seawater traveling through it. The pipes would deteriorate within a year and a half of being placed in service. Some of the resulting leaks occurred in the ceilings in sleeping quarters and mess halls, so the customer knew that a long-term fix must be applied. Solution: American Pipe Lining, a Nu Flow company, cleaned and lined the CHT systems with our blown-in epoxy coating. This barrier has prevented corrosion, leaks and other failures in these CHT systems since APL did the work. The U.S. Navy chose Nu Flow’s technology for their aircraft carriers because when compared with a re-pipe for the vessels, our in-place solution is about 1/10 of the cost and the work was completed in less than half the time. As a result of their faith in our solutions, there is a naval standard for coating the pipe systems that is based on our pipe lining technology.
