Vortex Companies adds small diameter pipe UV curing technology to UV CIPP solution suite

(UI) — The Vortex Companies (Vortex), a leading provider of advanced trenchless water and sewer technologies and infrastructure renewal services, has announced the addition of the small diameter IMS MICROcure LED CIPP Curing System (MICROcure) to its portfolio of UV CIPP solutions. Source One Environmental (S1E) is Vortex’s exclusive distribution partner in the United States for the technology.

“The addition of a small diameter UV curing technology rounds out our product line-up and provides a system specifically designed for laterals and interior building piping systems,” Mike Vellano, CEO of Vortex Companies, said. “We have partnered with S1E, whose core customers include residential and commercial plumbers, to be our distribution and sales partner.”

MICROcure is specifically engineered to reline sewer mains, laterals, and interior plumbing systems ranging from 3-inch to 10-inch in diameter and works with both inversion and CIPP methods. Designed for portability, MICROcure is built on a two-wheel carriage and weighs only 176 pounds.

The system comes with two light sources for optimum curing: a 2x400-watt unit that easily navigates multiple bends up to 90 degrees for 3-inch to 6-inch pipe, and an 8x100-watt unit that accommodates 6-inch to 10-inch pipes. Vortex and S1E’s training support resources will be valuable to help educate the North American market about MICROcure’s advantages for small-diameter trenchless rehabilitation, supporting domestic adoption of the technology.

“MICROcure’s application versatility, and compact size make it a sensible addition to a plumbing contractor’s services,” Ron Smith, president of S1E, said. “It will potentially create a new income stream for plumbers wanting to invest in a trenchless and non-invasive solution for repairing or renewing in-building piping systems as well as structures’ lateral and sewer lines.”
