Smart Pipe designs and manufactures high-pressure reinforced thermoplastic pipe (RTP), a tight fit liner in up to 50,000 feet of a high pressure underground pipeline.  Smart Pipe restores the pipeline to its full pressure handling service rating, renews the projected service life of the subject pipeline to “like new” or “better than new” condition, and does so without diminishing the flow rates through the line.

In addition it provides the operator of the pipeline with continuous monitoring and inspection features to assure safe operation of the line throughout the renewed operating life of the pipeline and assures compliance with the regulations now emerging under the various Pipeline Safety Acts.
