For over 25 years, Miller Pipeline Corp. has served the nuclear industry by providing inspection services, coating repairs, ultrasonic testing, internal joint sealing corrosion prevention, maintenance, video inspection and pipeline cleaning, pipe relining and replacement and much more. Miller Pipeline is an industry leader in a number of various trenchless technologies which ensue little to no disruption to above ground facilities or operations.
All of Miller Pipeline’s technicians are confined-space trained and certified to comply with all requirements of 29CFR 1910.146 Federal OSHA’s Permit Required Confined-Space Regulations. Our technicians can quickly gain unescorted access and are able to perform all required activities with short notice. Whether it’s circulating water or safety related piping, Miller Pipeline has a cost effective solution that can be installed quickly and professionally. The flagship of Miller’s service offerings in nuclear power plants has been our internal joint sealing product, WEKO-SEAL® , which is used to provide corrosion protection from brackish water or terminate troublesome leaks at joints.
The WEKO-SEAL is a cost effective solution that provides outstanding long-term results in part because of the installation techniques we use when placing them. Their design and the physical properties of the seal itself, which is made from a flexible EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) rubber compound is held in place with hydraulically expanded stainless steel retaining bands that ensure a bottle tight installation. The WEKO-SEAL® is installed via man-entry in pipelines with penetration distances in excess of 1,000 feet.
The WEKO-SEAL comes in a variety of widths but can also be used for continuous coverage of any distance through our Sleeve/Seal capabilities. In addition to the WEKO-SEAL, we offer a cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) that is used to reline an existing pipeline of virtually any size or configuration. The resins used in our MPC ToughTube® CIPP can be designed to meet specific service requirements. Whatever the need might be, or whatever product used, our technicians work closely with staff engineering personnel to formulate and execute all desired outage objectives. At Miller Pipeline we understand the stress of refueling outages and view our role as an extension of plant personnel to achieve assigned tasks, on time and in a professional and safe manner.
